Fall Scenes

20 Oct

Here’s some random shots from around the farm.

Fionn and girls

My sister sent me pie pumpkins. I think I have an idea for something new and delicious!

It is looking like fall.  Then last Sunday, this happened.

Our first snow!

I am not ready for winter.  Please, let me enjoy fall for a while yet.

I haven’t seen many of these wooly bears in the last few years.  This one was not happy with my demanding him/her to model.


But he/she was so cute!

1.  I sometimes plant things in my garden that I don’t get around to using.  At least with the parsley (and I still want to use some for making salsa), I know the swallowtail caterpillars will enjoy what I don’t use.  They also might enjoy the drink of water that they get while I’m watering the plants.

2.  We’ve had early outs from work all week because of the heat.  It really makes it hard to get into a routine when the schedule is funky everyday.  I’ve had a couple of people ask how it’s going with my involuntary transfer, and I don’t like to talk about work too much here, but I’m just going to say, I’ll be heavily promoting my novels, so I can make the best-seller’s list and write and farm full time.  I’m still hoping for a September publishing date for The Elements.

3.  I’m really excited to get the two goat kids, Little Bit and Cora, moved out of my kitchen this weekend.  Not sure how it’s going to go because I really need to keep them away from their mom.  I think I need a couple more weaning pens.

4.  I’m working on my 2014 Eden Hills calendar.  I love taking the time to go through the last year in pictures.

5.  Even though my freezers aren’t full, I’ve indulged in making some goat’s milk yogurt.  It is just divine!
