Camera Broke But Now We’re Back With Homestead Updates! Week 43 2018

We’re outside enjoying the nice fall weather and giving you an update on our fall garden.

Well, I finally got another camera so we’re excited to get back to vlogging again. We’re starting off with a full animal update cause a lot has happened in the last several weeks.

Flooded Barn, A day At the Kansas State Fair, Never A Dull Moment and More! Week 38 2018

What a day on the homestead…nothing went as planned but as we always say… “There’s never a dull moment on the homestead!” Ollie got out AGAIN and we moved the turkeys around. Is Bumbleston pregnant? Will we take her to the fair? Be sure to watch to the end of the video because Brooke has some really awesome news!

It’s Kansas State Fair time so we packed up Miley’s chicken and headed out!

OH no… it rained so much our barn got flooded. What a stinky mess!

A Day In the Life, When It Rains It Pours and When It Pours It Floods and More! Week 37 2018

Oh my, got a ton of rain and more flooding than we’ve ever seen!

It poured rain, our tents got wet, so we came up with a new plan… and now we kinda question our sanity!

We had a large basil harvest so I tested out a quick way to dry it. While I canned tomatoes Brooke finished setting up her aquarium and now it’s finally time to show you!

Cleaning rabbit cages, harvesting tomatoes, gathering eggs, taking the goat for a walk, finishing up the 4H record book… it’s just another day on the homestead.

Pondering If All This Is Worth It, Bunny Mishap and More! Week 35 2018

Miley has been planning to take our Holland Lop, Bumbleston, to the state fair but now she may not get to. Why? Well, you’ll just have to watch…

So I’ve been pondering… is all of this really worth it?

It’s time to pull out the cucumber plants in the green house so we can plant more. While doing it I discovered a nasty squash bug infestation. We had our alfalfa swathed and baled, so now the hard work of getting them put away begins.

Full Homestead Update and Is Raising Turkeys Really Worth It? Week 34 2018

Is raising turkeys worth it for us? Well, to find out the answer you’ll just have to watch…

I’m finally getting my life back in sync after the fair so I thought I’d give you an update of the homestead and after this, hopefully get back to normal vlogging schedule.

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!
