Cutting up chicken is a lot more work than freezing it whole. It pays off in the long run though, because it makes it more convenient to use. This time we cut more up than we left whole. It’s a great feeling to have that chore done for this year.
It was a warm, beautiful, but very windy Halloween evening. Even though it was difficult for witches to keep their hats on, it didn’t stop the fun.
It was a busy day… carved the pumpkin, canned chicken broth and fixed my Mom’s porch.
We finally got our goat corral made. It turned out really nice and the goats seem to like being in there better than the smaller one we had them in. While we were building the corral I started making bone broth to can. We ended the evening working on our bullet journals in hopes of getting our days a little more organized.
Gave Miley sewing lessons and then got more tomato sauce canned. I’m getting so close to getting all my pint jars filled… what a great feeling!
We got the beans picked and snapped, now we just need to find time to can them.
A lot of times I don’t follow recipes and will just randomly make something according to what we have on hand. Sometimes it turns out great, other times not. Tonight’s supper was one of those experiments.
At chore time we found the turkeys missing so we had to find them and put them back in the coop. Always something around here….
Got the usual fall worming and hoof trimming done on the goats. Picked a nice selection of produce from the garden for supper. Why is it that fall produce tastes so much better?
Conversations with the turkeys, being captured by a cat squirrel, chores, freeing a stuck goat, a new nest of guinea eggs, beautiful weather, lots of produce from the garden, and a simple supper. It’s just another great day on the homestead.
One day over the weekend the kids were gone and it was just my husband and I home. So we had us a little date scooping poop, cleaning things up and doing some much needed fixing up to a few things. Now that everything is all switched up we have a whole new morning chore routine.
We also picked beans and the kids have been keeping busy with a few projects they came up with on their own. Who needs toys when you have sticks, paint, string and a bog box to play with?
We got the last of our alfalfa cut, baled and put up for winter. It’s a relief to have that done. We had a rooster get tangled in some string, so we had to chase him down and free him, then we spent a good part of the day getting chicken broth canned.
