Friday’s Hunt v1.26

24 Jun

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.  I’m excited for week twenty-six!  I can’t believe we’ve made it through our first round of the alphabet.  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 A, Week’s Favorite, and macro.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy 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 Z:  This gate makes a perfect Z.  I hope to do a lot of work to the fence around my garage and front yard.  This gate will probably disappear, but I would like to keep a walk through gate up there.  Only I’d like it to open and close, unlike this one.

Z is also for Zoe.  I didn’t even name her just for the letter z.  This is Sallie’s little girl, and that was the name that came into mind when I first saw her.  She is one feisty little girl.

Week’s Favorite:  I struggle with this one.  It’s been a rough weather week and I’ve been busy, so I haven’t had much of a chance to photograph things.  I have to say our rain was my favorite this week.  I’m grateful for the little bit we got, and I’m hoping to get more tomorrow night.

Today:  Today is another Farmer’s Market day, and I have this post scheduled.  I’m willing to bet that today ends with me walking out to pasture after the market to make sure all the little kids get back up from pasture.

It’s hard for a little kid to keep up in the tall grass.

Today in the Pasture

18 Jun

Can you tell what happened in my pasture today?

They baled my hay.  They filled three racks for me, and that will be enough to fill my barn with what I have left from last year.

The rest of what was mowed will get chopped and blown into the barn for my nephew’s cows.

In the morning, we’ll unload the racks with my hay.

Rainy Nights

26 May

We’ve been stuck in a rainy pattern lately.  It comes at night and we are hot and humid during the day.  Then more storms.

Tonight and tomorrow look to be the big soakers for me.  Luckily, I’ve avoided anything severe.

The only bad thing is that the rain comes overnight, so I haven’t been able to catch Sam in the building and trim his hooves.  That was my plan.

It has really made that grass grow!  Soon it will be time to make hay.

It’s starting to get hard to find the kids out in pasture.

The rye is also getting big.

The rows beside the rye are corn.  It’s coming up nicely.  You can tell we no-till farm because all that dead vegetation in between the rows are leftovers from last year’s harvest.  Leaving the plants in the ground and not tilling it helps to hold the soil in place.

Soon we’ll cut the rye and plant our pumpkins there.  I can’t believe we’re already planning for year two of the pumpkin patch.

I do hope you’ll come back Friday evening to join me in Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are posted at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing with Skywatch Friday, Willy Nilly  Friday, and Random 5 Friday.
