Today is my boys' birthday. The big 15. Happy birthday son!
FedEx delivered my Yellow Fin and German Butterball taters bright and early this morning. Too bad it rained 3/8" last night!
I haven't said anything about the project for the chickens yet, it's been iffy getting any help out of the hubby. But, all this week every morning the 3 of us, the boy, hubby and I, have all spent a few hours out there cleaning up the fallen trees, removing the old hog pen, rounding up all the junk that seemed to find itself into that spot and now we have a 50x150 spot I intend to put 2 chicken pens and tater rows in. Will take pics of it soon...
I made a wheel of garlic-basil cheese per request by my farming pal. It came out okay I guess, I delivered it last night.
Still waiting to hear from Mom, the cheese I sent her in the mail should get there hopefully today.
My tractor was on loan yesterday and it came home this morning with a bucket full of lime. Guess I'll be fixing the holes in the horse barn today! Also have the English Game Hen setting on a pile of eggs in between the straw bales in the old barn. She found herself a hidey hole. Will need to keep a close eye on her for the hatch and catch the chicks up quick or the cats will have brunch again....
I hope to have 3 litters of bunnies by the first of April, it's been since last fall I had any live babies. Rough winter and the freezer is empty of rabbit meat :(
Well, that's about all that's going on this fine March morning... stay safe and keep prepping!
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
