Friday’s Hunt v2.10

2 Sep

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with K, Week’s Favorite, and yellow/gold.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with J:  I am going with juvenile.  I have all my June babies that are still juvenile goats.

Week’s Favorite:  My favorite this week was coming home from work last night and seeing the goats in pasture.  Now, isn’t that supposed to be normal.  Yes, it is, but when I came home Tuesday and Wednesday, the goats were in my corn field.  Actually, they were in the corn field on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, they  had made it all the way to the pumpkin patch and starting to head out onto the road.  I guess I managed to get the gate fastened tight enough on Wednesday, and they were in.  Yay!

Surprise:  I got a text from my sister on Sunday asking if I wanted tomatoes.  Well, of course I did.  My geese ate all of mine–the few they had with our dry summer.  I got three five gallon buckets full.  Then my mom brought me part of another bucket.  So, in the midst of my goats being out, I was busy canning tomatoes. That’s a lot of surprises this week. I do like the results of the tomatoes though!

    June and juvenile are perfect (and cute) examples of starting with ‘J’! You have captured the goats nicely. The roasted tomatoes look delicious!

      Thanks. I do love my roasted tomato sauce.

  2. That’s a great surprise! Our tomato crop is going to be a disappointment this year. It’s good that last year was extraordinary.

      Sorry to hear your tomatoes aren’t doing well. Maybe you’ll have some gifted to you.

    The tomatoes look really good, Teresa. We now and then get gifted by friends a few garden tomatoes. They are sooo good. Also, I am sorry that your goats got out. No fun, besides if they would have left your farm they could hurt your reputation.
    Thank you for hosting, things go along fast with the letters.

      Well, I don’t think it would hurt my reputation. I just worry that they would be hit. I don’t want anyone to get hurt.

    I would call them teenagers, lol ! They must be in a playful mood all the time. Canning tomatoes you are really brave I would be far to lazy to do that !

      They are ornery. Even my old ladies.

    Love your sweet goats, though I am sure you have other words for them…..love the tomatoes,,,wish I knew how to can! Thanks for hosting us!

    • Teresa at 5:46 pm #

      I do adore them. Although occasionally, I do have other choice words. They are just being goats. I love the home canned foods.

  6. Su-sieee! Mac at 6:57 pm #

    That’s a lot of canning! Good for you. I like your sweet photo of the frolicking juveniles.

    • Teresa at 5:46 pm #

      Well, you have to can when you have the tomatoes. LOL The kids love running around out there.

    The June Juveniles are adorable still! The tomatoes are a great bonus – I can’t wait to grow more here. I had a lot of cherry tomatoes from my container plants, but not enough to make sauce.

    • Teresa at 5:47 pm #

      They are cute! It will be nice when you can garden again. I would appreciate gardening without goats and geese.

    Such naughty goaties!! I’m so glad they didn’t get out onto the road! What a blessing to receive those lovely tomatoes. They look really nice all lined up in their jars.

    • Teresa at 5:49 pm #

      Me too. I do worry that they will get on the road. I am very grateful to my sister for the tomatoes.

      It’s a good feeling to have tomatoes canned for winter use. So glad you join me for Friday’s Hunt!
