Working Full Time and Homesteading || A Day In Our Life

It’s been a while since we’ve made a video so we thought it would be fun to do a video on what our life is like now that I’m working full time. It’s been quite an adjustment for all of us, but so far we’ve fallen into a good routine. This is a typical week day. Weekends are a little different because we focus more on projects and maintenance on the homestead.

We’re Gonna Destroy This Straw Bale! || Deep Mulch Gardening || We’re Having A Hay Day!

Speaking of cute things, we went to the bunny barn to check in with the rabbits. Miley is wanting to breed one of her bunnies so that she has some older ones to show next year, but the bunnies had other ideas…

I’ve Been Milking This Goat For 198 Days Straight!

It’s the longest number of days I’ve ever went milking a goat with out skipping! Normally we do kid sharing so we don’t have to milk every day, but since Nutmeg lost her kids I’ve had to keep milking her to keep her in milk. Has it been difficult? Well, you’ll just have to watch…

A Happy Garden Update!

Life has been busy for us lately, so we had to take some time off from making videos. Now that things have settled don a bit, we’re trying to get back into the swing of things. With the rainy spring we had, the garden got off to a slow start, but overtime it managed to pull through and we have a happy garden update!
