I know I haven’t posted in awhile, so I thought I would drop by to apologize and give a quick update.
We have three kittens (rescued) as additions to our farm, Murphy, Max, and Macy. Cooter was not impressed, but is adjusting.
We have a friend coming to stay the night on his way to WA state. Yea!
This Saturday we sell our ram lambs and 3 cull ewes. Really sad….I really want to find an alternative to culling our ewes if anyone has an economical suggestion. Our pen did have 5 cull ewes, but 2 of them with 1/2 of their udder not producing milk (can’t raise twins very well=bottle lambs) made it back into our breeding pens. I just couldn’t do it….it made me sick to my stomach to think about selling them and what might happen to them. Luckily, I have a very compassionate and fairly patient husband who move the last of the two over for me one evening after I voiced my distress about selling her.
This weekend I plan to (I’m only listing the fun/interesting stuff on my to-do list for ya):
Make fermented salsa (NT)
Make honey-sweetened homemade ice cream
Make whole wheat tortillas (soaked)
Soak beans for chili
Cook chili over an open-fire
Plant turnips for winter forage for our sheep and chickens
Dig sweet potatoes
And many more not-so-fun-or-interesting things. Wish me luck!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
