Grub Invasion Update, Moon Flowers and More! Week 41 2018

Oh the wonderful smell of rotting, decaying grubs… Just a little update on the whole grub situation and how I decided to get rid of them.

Today Miley takes you along as she does chores and shows you some of the flowers she’s grown.

It’s another crazy day on the homestead where nothing goes as planned… but then we should be used to that by now. If only I could have a few moments to get my sauce canned…..

Grubs Here, Grubs There, Grubs Everywhere, and Then There Are Even More! Week 40 2019

We just keep scooping them up and more come back!

Grubs here.. grubs there… grubs are everywhere!! I don’t have time for this!

A special thank you to a couple viewers who have given us ways to keep Neville’s memory alive.

The day started out beautiful. It was the first day of fall, the weather was perfect, and we planned on hanging outside doing chores and picking tomatoes until we made a gross discovery. We have a huge infestation in the greenhouse. What was it? There’s no way to describe it other than you’re just gonna have to watch….

Just getting caught up on everything that’s happened lately that we haven’t had time to vlog.

Fun At the Fair and Fun In the Garden! Week 33 2018

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!

We Have Hay In the Barn, Lots Of Goodies From the Garden and More! Week 29

It’s my favorite time of the year when it comes to fixing meals because the garden is starting to kick in so more and more goodies become available from the garden.

The rain we’ve been having has been great for the garden so I thought I’d give ya a little update…

Today we’re moving our goats to new pasture! But.. being creatures of habit, will they stay out there?

After a lot of rain our alfalfa grew back and we were able to get it swathed and baled. We didn’t get many bales but the quality was better than we normally get. No matter the amount, hay bales in the barn makes us happy!

It’s been super hot and humid but good thing about that is the cucumbers grow great in those conditions. So now we have enough to ferment!

Surprise Chicks, Fishing At the Lake, Garden Update and More! Week 24 2018

One of our hens appeared out from under a bush with chicks!! Never a dull moment on the homestead!

It’s free fishing weekend and we decided to take a break from all the work at the homestead and enjoy a fun evening at the lake.

It’s getting to be that time where the garden should be in and growing. We’re almost there but still have a lot to do yet!

Wondering if you have a male or female turkey poult? Here’s how we tell them apart..
