Hen and Chick plant with a Moth showing its colors.
My Crepe Myrtle a Sweet friend got me last year..
I thought I killed it! But it came back! Woo Hoo!
My Lavender and Tarragon...
I was worried they wouldn't make it. But they are growing!
Christmas tree/Chicken tree!
All sorts of things to recycle..
Goats cleaned it up to the bare branches
Chickens now use it to roost in..
Its been raining for days! A little sun here and there but for the most part rain, rain and MORE rain! I have used 3 bales of straw in the goat barn, chicken house and for the bucks.. Its still muddy. I usually use a half a bale in the goat barn and the other half for the boys and the chickens.. You walk in the barn and you can here it squish.. You could leave the gate wide open right now and not One Goat would budge because they will not walk in that stuff.! I wear my Muck boots folded down right now because they are cooler like that. But it almost came over the top of my boot! Places where the water would run off before and leave fairly solid ground are so saturated they are squishy and slick.. Looks like Possibly Tuesday there May be no rain.. Probably long enough for us to get the yard mowed..
For it to rain more and grow more.
To mow again....Lol
A vicious cycle....
The fence is working great. Its very visible since Kyle weed eated it underneath. They are Very leery of it. No one has been shocked in a day or so. That is a good thing. Eventually they get to where I can leave it off during the day and just plug it in at night or while we are gone to keep predators out. Of course it has also been raining so they aren't going very far.
Kyle is still not going back to work yet because of the rain it slowed things down so the stuff they were suppose to get done last week didn't and they will Hopefully get it done this week.. All our bills are paid for the month just the living expenses are what we have to worry about right now. Now if I can just sell some of those boys out there... We have started weaning because they were so big. A little younger then I usually wean but they are half as big as their mommas and are eating grain and hay really well.
I am hoping to get Zucchini and Squash planted this week. Maybe even tomato plants. They are still pretty small.. I have to get more wire to protect them from the chickens! The rest of the garden beds I have surrounded in wire have so far discouraged the chickens. I put some around my back porch to because the chickens had decided that was they other home... Ummm no its not my dears!Lol I may grow the morning glories back there along the fence..
