My squash was dying out and the tomatoes were becoming a jungle.
I had so many tomatoes underneath the bushes that I couldn't get too.
So we pulled it all out.. Saved the good tomatoes...
It was crazy.....
while picking up and sorting the good from the bad....
Chickens got a lot of tomatoes...
Kyla and Kara pulled that all out...
Candice and I cleaned out the goat barn
and added it to the various beds I have started..
I am not sure yet what will go here...
Here is another Undecided bed...
Maybe something Viney(is that a word? according to
spell check its not. But they had no useful suggestions.)
There is a fence behind it and nothing to eat it from the other side..
The pile of tomato and squash plants
that didn't have anywhere to go yet..
The new Buck Rabbit hutch...
The tarp is temporary till I get some tin..
But at least they are up off the ground..
The little banties in their own living quarters..
Over where the tomatoes were..
Sort of a chicken tractor.
I hope they clean it up good!
I got a Real Light in the barn!!
Kyle got new lights for the garage
and gave me this shop light for the barn.
It will be soooo nice come kidding season.
If the bucks ever get with the program!
Pixy the goat in the middle
uses her momma to get a step up..
Because that's what Mommas are for you know!
Caught Hope shaking her head and flinging those ears!Lol
Pixy is a ham!....
She knows she is the Herd Princess!
Her mom is Herd Queen and it is well known!
Goats have a definite Hierarchy.
The bucks are still terrified of the goat girls! I am trying to be patient but you know..
It may be next May before I get any goat babies... Nooo nooo Don't even want to think that..
I am already planning next years garden. I have been stopping every once in a while at Bakersville and buying heirloom seeds. I figure by the time spring gets here I will have to buy very few seeds. I hope to have enough to take to a local farmers market and sell plants and then hopefully produce.
We wrapped up our year in 4H. The girls turned in all of their project papers today.. Yeah!!! Of course if they wouldn't procrastinate like their momma we would have turned them in already!Lol But we start with a local group this year and I am anxious to see how it goes. Its much smaller than our former group. We will miss them.. But it will be nice to meet more local people.
We got a few little isolated showers today. Its warmed back up but its not as miserable as it had been. Things are pretty dry though. I know some people are feeding hay already. I still have that fence to get up and mine wouldn't have to eat as much hay! But some good rain would be nice.
School is also starting for us soon.. I am not ready yet.. The procrastination is kicking in...
My oldest also turns 14 this weekend!! I just cant believe it.. She cannot possibly be that old. That is how old my mom was when she met my dad and they were "going together"!! Nooo Not possible! Okay NOT going to think about that right now...
So I am off for the night.. Have a good night all!
