Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. This evening Me and Nellie were having our usual evening snooze in front of the fire and who should walk through the door, but brother. He is back from u-ni-ver-sity to work at Farmer Rae’s orchard, assisting in the clean up after the recent flooding. It is fitting and proper that he is back to give Me and Nellie the love and understanding that We so richly deserve.
Here are some photos taken of Farmer Rae’s kiwifruit orchard on Sunday morning. As you can see there is a lot of flooding and damage to the orchard.
Mummy says kiwifruit vines do not like to get their feet wet so it is very important that the land is drained as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the weather forecast is for more rain this weekend. Let’s hope the weather gods smile on the Mangamahu valley and there is not too much more precipitation in the next few days. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.
