Done and To Do

21 May

It’s been such a flurry of activity this last week or so that I thought I’d just try to catch everything up.  After I sold the girls Saturday, that let me move the bucks back onto the front pasture.  That’s a good thing because their little paddock was getting eaten down.  Now they have plenty of green grass.

Although I still need to get the hill planted with grass.

My corn was planted on Friday. It’s been a rush to get everything planted this year because of the late finish to winter.

The pasture is growing well.

My mom is coming to let the goats out each day because we haven’t had a chance to get a fence put up around Dead Tree Hill to try and keep thm safe from coyotes.  That’s still on the agenda for this summer.

Of course, it’s soon going to be time to make hay.

And then June babies are coming.  It’s always busy on the farm.

Hopefully the Last Snow

19 Apr

Yesterday was another day of rain, freezing rain and snow.  It was an all day event.

By evening, the storm was passing by.  Most of the snow was even melting.

Of course that has left us horribly muddy again.

Look at that poor baby’s legs.

Hopefully, the forecast is correct because it looks like this might be our last snow.

That would be good because we are horribly far behind in getting started with the spring planting season.

Harvest

17 Oct

I came home from work today to see that my beans were being harvested!

It’s always a good feeling when the crops are harvested.

This year has been quite a challenge with a cool rainy May, and then drought, and then a wet October.

I’m certainly glad to have this year’s harvest in the books.
