D Another Week has come to a close and another one has started. Praying some of the days this week arent as wet as the past week. We want to get the gardens tilled up and turned over to let the ground and soil warm. Planting is going to be top priority soon. I have a feeling store bought food is going to be very expensive. the flood in the southern states arent helping.
Have 2 garden space to get tilled up and going to do several container gardens and had a friend tell me she does alot with old tires. I can help out a few people with space tires.
I have received some of my seed will order more this week. Plenty of time the ground is so wet I will be lucky to plant by the first of June. Have lots that came in early in the year.
Its has rained so much here my road to the pasture is ankle deep with mud, thank goodness for high boots. Walked the cows and calf tot he pasture for the first time this year today. hoping to save a little on hay buying if they can eat during the day in pasture and only have to be hayed at night till it get warm enough and some sun make the grass grow better. Sitting watching Jacob the bull walk around the driveway. He keeps getting out of the paddock with the horses. Doesnt go anywhere, just walking around.
I see the people that predicted the rapture for yesterday dont have a good connection with God. I feel bad for the people that always fall for the silly stuff want to know when the rapture is coming then read your Bible and it will tell you. Only God knows, thats it. No man can tell you. Dont bet your life on any man and his saying, believe whats in your heart, believe what you have faith in be true to yourself. Theres no since worrying cause it wont change a thing to worry. Live your life clean and honest and do your best.
I havent been on since Miss Molly had her twins, we now have Hazel and Mack, Ledge Hill Farm finally got a little girl,, finally. I will post picture in the slide show later, they are precious. 3 more does to have babies and Lucy the cow and we are done for a little while unless someone else got breed again, and I am leaning towards thinking Daisy did.
I did sell a bunch of the boys this week and the 2 pigs, I felt bad for the pigs, I just couldnt keep them dry. With all the rain, their pens just kept holding back water no matter how many ditches we dug to drain it. All the bunnies are gone also, gave them to a gentleman who has a petting farm. My dogs would of killed them if I had of let them run loose. Beside I need garden vegetables more than rabbits right now. The work load has lightened and I feel sad they had to go, but in the next since I was over burdened and wasnt enjoying myself. Some of the bucks I couldnt keep fenced and my wonderful neighbor is planting flowers again this week and they would go visit him and after awhile he wouldnt have any flowers. Keeping peace in the neighborhood is important.
I have been working on cleaning the big chicken coop. I have a wonderful friend who is hatching all sort of poultry and I am hoping to get more chickens, few turkeys and possible meat birds, guinea hens and such to add to the flocks here. Also it is easier to get someone to help with chores if I need to leave if there isnt 20 goats,20 rabbits. Not that I ever go anywhere.
Anthony is now up from his nap so we are going to go out and build us a little garden out of stones for some smaller veggies to grow in.
I will post more later alot to get caught up on, but its daylight and I need to cut up some wood and get fire going and few more things done out side.
Have a wonderful Sunday
