We started out the day with the usual chores. Milking is quickly coming to an end for the year as we dry up the goat. I’m looking forward to having a break from milking but we sure are going to miss the good milk.
We found that a couple of our chicken’s nails grew long so we caught them and trimmed them up. The day ended with a relaxing fire and star gazing… until the coyotes started howling… then the relaxation was over.
In this video we announce the winners of our giveaway. Congratulations to the winners!
The winners need to either message me through youtube or contact me at [email protected] with your information and I will get them shipped out as soon as possible.

It was a busy day with all the usual chores and garden work. The fermented pickles were ready so I got those packed into new jars and ready for the fridge.
Once all the work was done we made time for a little play and fun too.
Finally had time to make up some fermented pickles. I just wish I could have had a chance to pick the cucumbers a little sooner because they were a little over ripe.

Just a little garden update as I check it out after getting home from the fair…
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
We had a lot of stuff to get done in the garden so we made a day of it. Although it was a long hot day, we still had fun and plenty to giggle about… Continue reading
It was just one of those days, I don’t even know how to describe it, other than it definitely was NOT Eggstraordinary, it wasn’t eggcellent or eggceptional either. I guess I’d say it was pretty eggy and plenty messy…
