Just a little update on the latest happenings around the homestead.
This video is all about goats. We answer some of your questions and talk of a sweet story about Miley and Sweet pea.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day a little early and with that came a cute little surprise! Milking season is beginning earlier than expected. Yay!
The ice storm is still heading our way. We’re as prepared as we can be but not ready for it at all.
There’s a big ice storm predicted for our area so I’m starting to get a plan of action and figure out the best way to prepare.
We finally got our goat corral made. It turned out really nice and the goats seem to like being in there better than the smaller one we had them in. While we were building the corral I started making bone broth to can. We ended the evening working on our bullet journals in hopes of getting our days a little more organized.
Got the usual fall worming and hoof trimming done on the goats. Picked a nice selection of produce from the garden for supper. Why is it that fall produce tastes so much better?
Around here, most days start out with the usual morning chores and end with the usual evening chores. What goes on between those times varies greatly from day to day. Here’s a little glimpse into what one day here was like.
Got up early to get garden work done, and help Miley break the goats to lead for the fair, so we could get it all done before it turned hot. Later in the afternoon I watered the corn and had sprinkler problems which resulted in a couple of flooded rows of corn. I wasn’t thinking and as I went to get the hose off the sprinkler, I waded through deep mud and lost my flop flops. Well… that turned into a big mess. It was just one of those days… never a dull moment.
We got our first cutting of alfalfa for the year. It ended up being a whole lot better quality than last year’s, which we’re happy about. Best of all, its goat approved, so I’d have to say it’s a huge success compared to last year… Continue reading
Wow, it seems like for ever since I posted anything here. And you know, I’ve missed it. I didn’t intend to quit posting here, it just happened. As I’ve mentioned before, I started a YouTube channel. The reason I decided to start it is because I’ve found it hard to keep up with all that’s going on around here through blog posts. There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. With videos, it makes it just a little bit easier because I can capture the content while we’re out working, then edit it and have it ready to post. Where posts seem to take more time because we go out and work, take pictures, edit the pictures, then I have to come in and write, then edit. If I focus on writing, I tend to fall behind on the work that needs to be done around here and if I focus on the work, I fall behind writing. Since I’m not much of a multitasker, I decided to focus on making videos for a while to see if it’d be something I’d like. It’s been great because I’m learning all sorts of new things and have met a lot of fun like-minded people.
