Turkeys Hatched, the Go Kart Is Complete and More! Week 22 2018

After doing some thinking we decided our turkey poults would be better off being raised by their mama. So now they’re all back together once again.

Dylan got the go kart finished so we test it out. Also, a turkey update…. did the egg hatch?

The garden has become a weedy disaster so now it’s time to change up my plan.

We checked on our turkey hen and her poults and we found a surprise!

Our turkeys are finally here and now we have more turkeys than we know what to do with.

Turkey hen has shifted and is sitting differently on her nest… maybe her eggs are hatching!

Our turkey hen is diligently setting on her nest. Are there any signs they’ll be hatching soon?

There has been a couple of things that I’ve been wanting to get done for a while… so today is the day to get them done!

We’re moving our buck to a bigger pasture. He needed a shelter so we made an easy, cheap temporary shelter for him… nothing too fancy.

We had a busy day with lots of places to go. One of the things we did was go to the Sunflower Hot Air festival in Anthony, Ks in hopes of watching them fly hot air balloons.

Just getting some planting done and trying to plant according to what grows best together.

Processing day is never an easy day but this time was a little harder.

So several years ago I found this.. what seemed like a cute idea on Pinterest for my garden but… let’s just say it looked better on Pinterest. Plus we’re giving you a sneak peak of Dylan’s latest project!

Miley takes over the vlog and takes you along while she does her chores.

Miley’s been interested in experimenting with different recipes to make with dandelions. We’ve been searching for recipes and came across one for dandelion bread so we decided to try it.

This Pig Is In Hog Heaven, Planting Seeds and More! Week 18 2018

Finally the day has come to move the pigs out to their pen…. and I do believe they approve.

Ever since we put the green house up I’ve been wanting to hang out inside it and listen to it rain. Well, I finally got to do that!

We’re introducing the tomatoes to the green house. I want to get a shade cover soon because it gets way too hot for them to be out there full time yet. We are also planting flowers and putting our pepper plants into bigger cups.

It Snowed But It’s Warm In the Greenhouse, Transplanting Seedlings and More! Week 16 2018

It’s been a while since we’ve shown you some of our animals so today we’re taking you along as we do our morning chores.

We have hard, clay soil here. I’ve been working for several years to build up the soil in my garden and have come a long way. I just need something that will give it that extra boost and I think I found it.

Most of our seed sprouted and have grown enough that we need to get them transplanted.

We had snow and freezing temps but it was cozy warm inside our cattle panel greenhouse… actually it was a little too warm!

We finally got some snow and that made someone pretty happy!

Getting the Pigs Set Up, Cattle Panel Greenhouse Update and More! Week 15 2018

It’s a windy day here in Kansas! Just thought I’d give you an update on the cattle panel greenhouse and how it’s holding up in all this Kansas wind!

The pig feeder has rusted out on the bottom otherwise it’s in good shape. We don’t want to buy a new one so we figured out a way to fix it. Now it will get us through this season, and hopefully more!

Today is the first day of the season to milk our goat. We shared with the pig… but she wasn’t so sure about it.

Miley decided to spend some of her hard earned money and invest it in a pig. It will be her 4H project and she’ll be taking it to the fair and showing it as a market hog.

Let’s see… how to describe this day… I’d have to say it was a very productive, adventurous, dramatic day! Oh yeah… and very suspenseful!

I spent the day building up the beds in the greenhouse and getting it ready for planting.

With as dry as it’s been the price of hay has sure gone up. A good chance of rain is in the forecast, so maybe we’ll finally get some much needed rain.

It was a beautiful day so we were able to get a lot done on our cattle panel greenhouse.
