We have been officially in “lockdown” in South Africa for 2 weeks now and look to another 3 weeks, meaning we are not to step foot outside of our yards except for going for groceries or medication. Not even for jogging down our own road or walking our dogs. All non-essential businesses and stores have been shut down. We are so thankful to be living on a 25 acre farm, 4 households in total; our farm owner/buddies Lynn & Gary, the farm manager Zweli and his family of 4, our son Sam and his family of 4, and the 2 of us. We have plenty of room to run and play, as do, thankfully, the 11 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 horses. The 3 guys who normally come to work on the farm daily are hunkered down in their own homes off the farm, so there is plenty of opportunity to pitch in and help with the farm work. Last week and again this week to come we will be picking macadamias. Roy is busy keeping up with a lot of the normal work, including watering, which recently entailed repairing broken irrigation pipe fittings.
