The Girls are Producing

10 Oct

My new hens are laying eggs!

They are actually quite productive.

That’s a good thing because Snickers’s diet is pretty much back to egg poached in a huge amount of margarine with a healthy dollop of goat milk.

He’s looking pretty rough these days; that mouth is in bad shape.  My poor boy.


I just need to keep the goats milking for a while yet so I can freeze enough to last us through the winter.

I can use store bought eggs for him, but it has to be whole goat milk!

He might be a bit spoiled (or just deserving of it).

Friday’s Hunt v4.13

29 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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with M, cloth, and everyday things. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything 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 M, Everyday Things and Cloth:  Everyday things in my milk room and soap room include cheesecloth, jars, strainer, and lots of milk.

I’m been trying to make a lot of Mozzarella cheese to freeze for winter’s use.  I have to say, there is less clover in the pasture this year, so the cheese has the most amazing flavor!


Now it’s your turn!
