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..
It’s been a while since we’ve shown you some of our animals so today we’re taking you along as we do our morning chores.
We have hard, clay soil here. I’ve been working for several years to build up the soil in my garden and have come a long way. I just need something that will give it that extra boost and I think I found it.
Most of our seed sprouted and have grown enough that we need to get them transplanted.
We had snow and freezing temps but it was cozy warm inside our cattle panel greenhouse… actually it was a little too warm!
We finally got some snow and that made someone pretty happy!
It’s a windy day here in Kansas! Just thought I’d give you an update on the cattle panel greenhouse and how it’s holding up in all this Kansas wind!
The pig feeder has rusted out on the bottom otherwise it’s in good shape. We don’t want to buy a new one so we figured out a way to fix it. Now it will get us through this season, and hopefully more!
Today is the first day of the season to milk our goat. We shared with the pig… but she wasn’t so sure about it.
We’re getting our seeds for the garden started plus getting a little more planting done in the greenhouse.
Miley decided to spend some of her hard earned money and invest it in a pig. It will be her 4H project and she’ll be taking it to the fair and showing it as a market hog.
Let’s see… how to describe this day… I’d have to say it was a very productive, adventurous, dramatic day! Oh yeah… and very suspenseful!
I spent the day building up the beds in the greenhouse and getting it ready for planting.
I don’t have much experience using the power tools but we managed to get the plastic on the cattle panel hoop house. Now the fun time begins… planting seeds!
With as dry as it’s been the price of hay has sure gone up. A good chance of rain is in the forecast, so maybe we’ll finally get some much needed rain.
It was a beautiful day so we were able to get a lot done on our cattle panel greenhouse.
Brooke is getting into making and selling crafts. We’re opening a shop on my blog, and she will have lots of things available soon. She made these cute little bunny baskets for Easter and since Easter is coming soon, she wanted to go ahead and get them out.
We’re having the worst drought that we’ve ever had in a very long time in our area of Kansas. There’s nothing left in our pastures so the goats are constantly escaping into the wheat fields where the grass is quite literally greener on the other side of the fence.
For Dylan’s birthday we decided to go to the Strataca Salt Mines in Hutchinson, Kansas. It was an adventure like no other and one that we highly recommend!
We worked on the cattle panel greenhouse more today and were hoping to get it done. Things went slower than planned, so we still have a ways to go to get it done.
