Preparations for the septic system

Paul shaved off a few cubic meter of earth again from the side of the hill to make the terrace where the septic system's pipe will be laid. Dug the trenches and the tank and the pipes arrived.
We are picking the last of the apricots. Had heaps of fruit this year.
The French onions keep growing and we did a choock swap with Jozsi :-) His 1 rooster and 2 hens took to grazing/scratching at the neighbours. Neighbours changed. Choocks and rooster faced the execution block. Our 1 choock is eating the eggs she lays. Rooster went with her to not be lonely :-) Also a drake. 3 for 3. Change of scenery, farm...they might work out well and all of them escaped the slaughter :-) Here Jozsi's flock wouldn't find the neighbours. They are several hundred meters away.
My ones will be so confused on his paddock that she will lay her egg squatting down where the urge will hit and she will have a hard time finding the spot next day in Jozsi's jungle :-)
No dramas this week.
Isabelle is progressing well with the leaf plucking. We had a surprise visit from dear friends from Pemberton, WA, it was nice to catch up on news from our former town.
Ohhh...and I've been admitted to nursing school. Start next month.
