Other Things

2 Jul

I had to call my mom in to help me get the cherry jam made because I was busy kidding, but we managed to get it done and a batch of wild raspberry.  That’s a good start to the canning season.

I planned to have a few potatoes in the garden, but I ended up with a ridiculous number of potato plants, so I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the harvest.  I think I’m going to do homemade frozen french fries.

I tried it, and it turned out pretty darn good!

I should hopefully have enough to share with the rest of the family.

Now that I have the herd divided, I’m thinking I might need to move another milking doe over with the moms.  Joy is looking a bit run down raising her two big boys.

I’m thinking she might appreciate coming over to join her maa,  Zinnia, and Grandmaa Haley and getting some TLC and sweet feed.

Here’s a random little rainbow after one of the pop-up showers last week.  We still need a lot more rain, but I am grateful for what we did get.

Trace came up from pasture the other day looking like she had a bit of an accident.

Pretty sure she took a roll in the ditch.

Pretzel is making friends with the other June kids.

Here’s a random picture of Wanda.

Finally, another one of Pretzel.

She’s such a little cutie!
