A Calf That Misses His Milk, A Long Day of Cooking, It Was a Week Full of Silliness! Week 32

Just a morning filled with chores and animal silliness!

We like to take time to make quick and easy things to grab and go, like hot pockets and burritos. That way during busy times we have things to eat when we don’t have time to cook. We spent 12 hours straight cooking… by the end of the day we were pretty delirious.

So…I’ve been pondering if I should plant okra, more green beans and some yellow summer squash. It might be too late… but yet there might still be plenty of time for it to grow….

A New Calf On the Homestead, Guinea Is Sitting On Turkey Eggs and More! Week 17 2017

Today is lock down for our turkey eggs! I’m showing you the steps that need to be done to prepare them for hatching.

Just a little update on what I have planted so far and how the garden is doing.

Our guinea hen has been sitting on her nest, the one that I put turkey eggs in! We’re excited about that and are hoping that the turkeys will hatch. Other than that we’re just trying to get a new chore routine established and are giving an update on Brooke’s beta fish.

We reached a new goal by getting this animal for our homestead! It’s a goal we didn’t really expect to happen so soon. Things are about to get real busy around here, but we hope all the hard work will pay off later on.

Moved chicks to the chicken tractor, trimmed all the goats’ hooves, milked an extra goat we don’t normally milk… wrestled pigs to get them tagged… it’s a busy morning on the homestead!
