Ah, it's been a long day. My milk pals had an appointment this morning they could not miss so I got to milk the cows. I hate 6am! I was done by 9am, home for my cup of coffee and a small break before a couple last minute adjustments on the haybine and then some cutting. Just about finished the circle drive when a hose blew on me. Drown me all up my back with hydraulic oil. A run up the road to Royal Brass and Hose, $12.oo for a replacement and back to cutting. The haybine is working great. Got another field to cut tomorrow.
Look what I made! My very first wheel of cojack cheese. A blend of Monterey Jack and Colby. A 3lb wheel and that little chunk is all that's left. That figures, LOL.
The little Houdinis are growing like mad and doing well tied out by the horse paddock. The buck kept fighting with the sheep so they had to be seperated. So, the sheep gets the pen and the goats get tied out until I butcher the sheep.
Not too much else going on right now, I haven't seen a single Perseid meteor, depressing, I know, LOL. I did pick some hot peppers and green/red peppers to be dehydrated. I like cooking with them and dehydrating gives me peppers all winter long to use along with the ones I manage to grow in the kitchen windows.
Tomorrow I'm going to add on to the Medicinal Plants postings.....
