Cattle Panel Greenhouse Complete, We’re Trapped In the Greenhouse and More! Week 14 2018

We’re getting our seeds for the garden started plus getting a little more planting done in the greenhouse.

Miley decided to spend some of her hard earned money and invest it in a pig. It will be her 4H project and she’ll be taking it to the fair and showing it as a market hog.

Let’s see… how to describe this day… I’d have to say it was a very productive, adventurous, dramatic day! Oh yeah… and very suspenseful!

I spent the day building up the beds in the greenhouse and getting it ready for planting.

Cattle Panel Greenhouse Almost Complete, Hoping Rain Is On the Way and More! Week 13 2018

I don’t have much experience using the power tools but we managed to get the plastic on the cattle panel hoop house. Now the fun time begins… planting seeds!

With as dry as it’s been the price of hay has sure gone up. A good chance of rain is in the forecast, so maybe we’ll finally get some much needed rain.

It was a beautiful day so we were able to get a lot done on our cattle panel greenhouse.

We Toured the Strataca Salt Mines, Working on Cattle Panel Greenhouse and LOTS More! Week 12 2018

Brooke is getting into making and selling crafts. We’re opening a shop on my blog, and she will have lots of things available soon. She made these cute little bunny baskets for Easter and since Easter is coming soon, she wanted to go ahead and get them out.

We’re having the worst drought that we’ve ever had in a very long time in our area of Kansas. There’s nothing left in our pastures so the goats are constantly escaping into the wheat fields where the grass is quite literally greener on the other side of the fence.

For Dylan’s birthday we decided to go to the Strataca Salt Mines in Hutchinson, Kansas. It was an adventure like no other and one that we highly recommend!

We worked on the cattle panel greenhouse more today and were hoping to get it done. Things went slower than planned, so we still have a ways to go to get it done.

Fancy Birthday Cake, Surprise Birthday Call, and New Goat Kid Born! Week 11 2018

Blossom had her kid and it’s so cute! Since she’s a new mama, it took her some time to figure out what it was but after a little help, I think she’s going to be a great mama.

It was a surprise ending to an awesome birthday!

Since everyone had the day off, we decided to celebrate my birthday a day early and Brooke made me the fanciest birthday cake I’ve ever had.

Blossom is getting close to being ready to kid! We’re guessing March 7th as her due date, hopefully we’re right.
