Sunshine, blue skies, happy animals, plants, shovels, dirt, smiles, laughter, too many lettuce plants… ya know, all the stuff that brings homestead happiness….
We planned to take a little time off from vlogging so that I could get my classes done, but this day is so beautiful we just had to share…
We have a new litter of Holland lop bunnies, our other bunnies have grown and are looking cuter than ever, and our goat kids are up and at ’em… there’s lots of cuteness happening on the homestead.
So I’m not much of a snow person but I have to admit this is beautiful and does make me smile.
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!
