Today At The Farm...
The herb spiral I had built last week in two hours is coming along very well. At a later post, I shall discuss how to build a herb spiral and how the design makes for easy ( low energy ) maintanence.
The tanduk rusa IMO brew is coming along very well too. When we opened the canister, the brew just bubbles over. The pH is an excellent 3.7, and the color has a nice purple tinge to it.
When we rub some of the brew on the palm, one can feel the tingling sensation almost immediately, and it is not the tingling from the bubbles. It is like little spikes. And the palm becomes noticeably reddish, as if the brew draws blood to the palm.

Today's highlight was this little bird building a nest in the mulberry bush, right next to the staff kitchen. This shot was taken about 4 feet away and it was not bothered. It is a wild bird and nobody feeds it or anything; we are just too busy. I don't think there are many farms where birds fly around without fear.
Today's bummer was the continuing heat-wave. The road leading to the farm has become a heat-bank and the grasses lining the road on both sides are burnt from the heat:
Hope the weather changes soon. The animals are being affected and the workers too are feeling irritable from the continuing heat. Noonday temperature now can hit the low 40s.
