Family Fun, More Surprises From Our Chicks and More! Week 30 2018

We were surprised when we found our hen with chicks under her, then we were even more surprised when we found another hen hatching more chicks. Now that these chicks are growing, they surprised us once again…

The best memories are made when the family gets together.

The mosquitoes have been horrible here lately, in fact it seems like they’re worse than usual. We don’t like using chemical sprays so we’re looking for the best natural bug spray that actually works. If you have a great recipe that you don’t mind sharing, we’d really appreciate it.

Games, a Splatoon cake, a treasure hunt, swimming, fireworks and a campout… Happy 11th Birthday, Miley!

We Have Hay In the Barn, Lots Of Goodies From the Garden and More! Week 29

It’s my favorite time of the year when it comes to fixing meals because the garden is starting to kick in so more and more goodies become available from the garden.

The rain we’ve been having has been great for the garden so I thought I’d give ya a little update…

Today we’re moving our goats to new pasture! But.. being creatures of habit, will they stay out there?

After a lot of rain our alfalfa grew back and we were able to get it swathed and baled. We didn’t get many bales but the quality was better than we normally get. No matter the amount, hay bales in the barn makes us happy!

It’s been super hot and humid but good thing about that is the cucumbers grow great in those conditions. So now we have enough to ferment!
