Good morning... Summer has officially arrived here on the mountain!
Everything is bright and green.
Planting is being done, gardens being put in.
Hay season has also begun,we have already finished 1 field. Several more to go. Its an awesome sight to see and smell the fresh new seasons hay filling the barn.
The farm is busy with new babies. In March we bought 13 new baby goats, we did end up selling 4.. So by this time next year will will be in the goat milking business for sure and should have babies for sale our selves.
Oh my gracious the bunnies we have ,, Thinking we are at about 80 right now. Most are a meat breed type rabbit. I don't breed for an special variety. We just want rabbits. I did buy several large breeds for this reason and they are having awesome babies . So now we have some for sale.
Someone ask me one day how can you eat those cute bunnies? Easy,, I eat my pigs, chickens, turkeys,, why should bunnies be any different. This is a working farm,, this is a as much as possible self sufficient working farm. Each year we try to add to our own reliability. Where we depend on just us. The more I know whats in the food I feed my family the better off they will be.
Cant wait to get back to milking again,, Excited to be back on the farm working.
Took a yr and half off the farm working at the shop and that didnt do as we had hoped,, so bringing everything back full circle to the farm.
Still alot to do before the summer is over. Many new improvements to the farm are needed to keeps things running smoothly and easily for me to manage everything.
As soon as the gardens are in ,, its going to be fencing the top pasture in to get everyone up in the nice green grass, and it will cut the hay usage down for the summer.
Berry season is finally here, strawberries are just coming ready so will be picking some and getting them preserved for winters use. Blueberries are still a couple weeks out,, but we are ready when they are.
Well the clock on the wall says I have taken a long enough break and need to get about chores.
You all have a blessed Sunday.. Remember to give thanks for all things great and small
God Bless for the
