When it rains it pours… quite literally and figuratively! It was one of THOSE days on the homestead!
It’s a cold rainy day.. you know, the kind that’s best just to sleep away, and that’s just what I did! The kids grabbed the camera and had a little fun while I slept…
It’s a cold rainy day on the homestead! We’re trying to get as many tomatoes harvested and in the house before the rain starts. Since it ended up raining most of the day we decided soup sounded good for supper… so I just threw some random ingredients, with as many homegrown things as I could find, into a pot. Good or bad? Well, you’ll have to watch..
Oh the wonderful smell of rotting, decaying grubs… Just a little update on the whole grub situation and how I decided to get rid of them.
Today Miley takes you along as she does chores and shows you some of the flowers she’s grown.
It’s another crazy day on the homestead where nothing goes as planned… but then we should be used to that by now. If only I could have a few moments to get my sauce canned…..
We just keep scooping them up and more come back!
Grubs here.. grubs there… grubs are everywhere!! I don’t have time for this!
A special thank you to a couple viewers who have given us ways to keep Neville’s memory alive.
The day started out beautiful. It was the first day of fall, the weather was perfect, and we planned on hanging outside doing chores and picking tomatoes until we made a gross discovery. We have a huge infestation in the greenhouse. What was it? There’s no way to describe it other than you’re just gonna have to watch….
Just getting caught up on everything that’s happened lately that we haven’t had time to vlog.
Another fun and successful fair has come to an end. It’s been a great week filled with fun and memories but boy are we tired. How tired? Well, our chicken says it all……
What a beautiful and fun day on the homestead! We decided to hurry up and get our fall planting done before it gets too late. Hopefully it’s not! Brooke says Dylan is obviously not a farm boy. Why? Well… you’ll just have to watch.
Another day at the fair… it’s our 3rd time going! This time we’re going to drop off Miley’s rabbit and while we’re there we check in on her chicken and show you the results of poultry and photo judging.
What a day on the homestead…nothing went as planned but as we always say… “There’s never a dull moment on the homestead!” Ollie got out AGAIN and we moved the turkeys around. Is Bumbleston pregnant? Will we take her to the fair? Be sure to watch to the end of the video because Brooke has some really awesome news!
It’s Kansas State Fair time so we packed up Miley’s chicken and headed out!
OH no… it rained so much our barn got flooded. What a stinky mess!
Oh my, got a ton of rain and more flooding than we’ve ever seen!
It poured rain, our tents got wet, so we came up with a new plan… and now we kinda question our sanity!
We had a large basil harvest so I tested out a quick way to dry it. While I canned tomatoes Brooke finished setting up her aquarium and now it’s finally time to show you!
Cleaning rabbit cages, harvesting tomatoes, gathering eggs, taking the goat for a walk, finishing up the 4H record book… it’s just another day on the homestead.
String Bean, Sugar Pea, Phoebe… so how did we come up with those names?
Whoa…. we had to do a double take! Thought we had a new tom running around here but no… it was just Chance.
Miley has been planning to take our Holland Lop, Bumbleston, to the state fair but now she may not get to. Why? Well, you’ll just have to watch…
So I’ve been pondering… is all of this really worth it?
It’s time to pull out the cucumber plants in the green house so we can plant more. While doing it I discovered a nasty squash bug infestation. We had our alfalfa swathed and baled, so now the hard work of getting them put away begins.
Is raising turkeys worth it for us? Well, to find out the answer you’ll just have to watch…
I’m finally getting my life back in sync after the fair so I thought I’d give you an update of the homestead and after this, hopefully get back to normal vlogging schedule.
There’s lots of work to be done in the garden! We need to get potatoes dug so we can get beans planted. Then there’s the cantaloupe that should have been harvested several days ago and the watermelon that also needs to be picked. With all the laughter going on, it seems to be more fun than work!
Oh the places you will go and the things you will learn, see and do at the fair!
