Sunshine and Water

12 May

We’ve had rain and sunshine which has made for some good growing conditions.  Today’s sunshine made the goats happy too.

I could see that the corn is coming up.  The tall grass to the left is rye.  We’ll spray that and use it as weed control where we plant our pumpkins for the pumpkin patch.  We also have popcorn and Indian corn planted.

Up north, it’s been empty since I put the big boys back on the front pasture.

Luckily, the grass is growing quite well because I’ll put them back up here when we have June babies.  That way my new moms won’t be out in the Back Forty.

Of course, that mean’s I’ll be moving goats again before too long.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow, I have the items for this week listed at the top of my side bar.

Today I’m sharing with Good Fences and Skywatch Friday.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

28 Nov

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: me, my grocery list, baking, kindness, and change of seasons.

We certainly are in the midst of a change of seasons.  We have had rain, mud, snow, sun, and freezing rain in the last few days, and it’s all in the forecast for the next couple of days too.

I brought my last pumpkin in before it froze, and it’s what I’m baking today.  It will be used for Christmas pies and whatever other goodies I can come up with.

Out of kindness, I took the pumpkin insides out to the chickens.

They love it!  I like giving them treats to make them happy, and it’s good for them too.  Raw pumpkin seeds are a natural wormer.

I had several requests for my grocery list.

Despite setting a pretty fancy table, some critters think I need to get some suet too.

From the looks of the goldfinch image, it looks like I need to add window cleaner to my grocery list too.

Getting ready for the Christmas markets is keeping me busy.  I’m going from an entire building at the pumpkin patch to a small table or two at the craft sales.

This might take some work to get half of the stuff there that I want.  I’ve also updated my on-line market to include my new soaps and the wax melts.

I am also sharing this with Bird d’Pot, Macro Monday, and I Heart Macro.
