I had been on the farm for a week now and I couldn’t believe how at home I felt. The bugs, the dirt and the unpredictable weather did not annoy me at all. Who am I??
I eventually moved into my wee caravan and spent the night making it all cosy:
Two backpackers also arrived, they’re 21 and 22 from Manchester. They’re travelling the world together, so they’re a younger (not by much) version of Tash and Ben.
We’ve spent our days working on our living space to make it a perfect place for chilling after the long days picking beans.
We’ve also been getting to learn a lot about farming from the Aussie lady who will be overseeing our picking.
She’s taught us about irrigation, which is a fancy word for watering. We went to the paddocks and had to lay a massive hose between the crops and then manually feed sprinklers into the hose.
The work isn’t tough but it takes a long time to complete and is very manual.
Farm life is very chilled, I’ll just need to get used to it!
