Guess time flies when you’re having fun afterall.
Goats are doing well, still dont know if one of them is pregnant like we thought. Time will tell I suppose. Haven’t been making many goat milk products because I’ve been bottle feeding four puppies all of the milk.
Chicken stats: I have seven hens as of today. At one point, I had 11, the next day I had six…and the following day 3. We’re now back up to 7, and hoping it stays there for a while. Neighbors dog got five of em’, the others just came up missing without a trace. Think we have all the predatory issues figured out though, so we should be good for now. No eggs yet, waiting ever so impatiently. lol…
Garden Gab: Its SO pretty. LOVE spending time in the garden…what a joy it is. Right now I have corn, watermelons, tomatoes, zuchini, yellow squash, garlic, beets, jalapenos, serranos, and habaneros, romaine lettuce and herbs thriving. Potatoes look a little sad, and my honeydew and canteloupe just flowered, so we’ll see what happens there.
Doggy drama: Had to let go of yet another dog. The pups’ mom is half pit, and she just completely snapped on us. Started mauling the neighbors little dog completely unprovoked and growled at my youngest. She also abandoned four of her nine pups, which is why I have been feeding them the milk. They are almost big enough to move along, and I’m SO ready for that. Finally have what I think is my here-to-stay companion dog: Cornelia Marie, my 3 mo old pug. I have to find the memory card for my camera. You’ve gotta see this “so ugly its cute” face.
Fire news break: paid two really sweet Duggar-esque boys to weed whack the property. They did a phenominal job and for the first time, I can see my entire property. So exciting! It’s starting to look like someone lives here LOL!!
I have a long list of “wanna do’s” and at the top is bee keeping and heritage turkeys. I also really want to look into keeping ducks safely here…our predator issue makes it tough. Gotta find a way to get some pekings and keep them alive.
Guess thats all I’ve got right now, gang. Just praising God for His amazing love and blessings. I just cant get over what an amazing joy this house is…
