Well, yep, here it comes, what is with this bi-polar weather? The rods in my back sing to me every single day! The farm is a swamp and the critters are all looking at me like this is my fault. Hang in there girls, the sun is coming, I swear it is!
My teeny baby quails have hatched! I hope I can keep them alive.
On the up side.... the goats are all healthy and looking pretty good. Billy has grown a bunch this spring and is starting to look like a respectable billy goat. The 2 nanny kids I kept back look good as well. Baby goat is finally putting some weight on. Seems like this years kids were rough on her. I'll have to watch her closer this fall and be sure to keep her weight up thru her gestation. Can't have her looking so poor come kidding again. That ignorant neighbors dog didn't help her much, glad she bounced right back or I'd have to hold some animosity toward that neighbor. Even way out in the country, you still can't get away from stupid.
Got most of the new solar set up sitting here on go. Need 3 more batteries and the dc to ac converter that I've ordered. The batteries might take a month or 2 since they're a bit pricey but I'm close to where I want to be with it. Progress is slow but it's still progress. No more 1 step forward and 2 back anymore.
So, I'm doing what I can with my limited farm time to get the ball rolling in the right direction. I've got a few irons in the fire for the future, will share when they're more solid..... Until next time.....
