What a Week! Fixing Soil and Milking Cows


I visited my good friend Elizabeth this week and filmed one other video in her backyard:

She wrote me afterward to say the video seemed good, however wasn’t a wealthy, vibrant inexperienced like my earlier video at her place.

I informed her it was due to the classic Soviet lens I used to be utilizing plus the cinematic coloration grading. I just like the movies to appear like they have been high-end analog recordings from the 70s. It’s my look!

I intentionally run my camera with its inside settings set to minimal saturation and distinction, then I deliver up the degrees to the place I like them within the modifying.

But – bizarre creative pretensions apart – this new video an excellent have a look at how she turned some horrible filth into pretty soil and a productive backyard by means of including numerous natural matter and microbial life.

In different information, I haven’t posted a lot this week as a result of we have been busy with a brand new child cow and getting a milking shed arrange.

That is an image of Brandy’s first milking. She nonetheless has her calf along with her, however she nonetheless produced nearly a gallon for us.

I made the milking shed from scrap roofing, pallet wooden and felled popcorn bushes I notched with my machete. It’s remarkably secure.

Here you possibly can see the “head gate” we constructed to maintain cows considerably nonetheless as they’re milked.

There is a manger in entrance which retains the cow occupied:

She is a simple cow to work with and let down her milk instantly. Her willingness to be milked was spectacular – she went proper into the shed and contentedly munched grain by means of nearly all the course of.

She did handle to kick Rachel within the leg and spatter her with manure on the finish, although.

I must make a milking stool subsequent. Maybe early subsequent week. We’re nonetheless making an attempt to determine how we’re going to separate the calf for a part of the day to make sure a greater milk provide.

It’s been a busy week however a very good week. Have a beautiful weekend – I’ll catch you once more on Monday.
