Busy Busy Busy

Sorry for the silence.
It’s been a busy few days.

Pigs are done.
It’s all over but the cut and wrap.
That’s my task for the next day or so, plus canning up some of the meat, making bone broth, prepping and brining bellies for bacon and getting the winter cat food made.
So, Ima be scarce for the next week.
But when I’m back, I’ll post the final numbers…from what we put into the pigs money wise, to our cost per pound.
And our plan for next year.

Until then, here’s a lovely picture of our sweet CinderBella having an early morning nap as the sun rises…

The prettiest Palomino on the prairies.

Wordless Wednesday

Start by doing what’s necessary;
then do what’s possible;
and suddenly
you are doing the impossible.

Cats…and Chickens?

Right now, I feel like I should be swimming.
We’ve had another 55mm of rain here in just a few days time.
The water paths are filling up…that’s actually okay, because the past few summers, they’ve been dry.
Which has been good for The Merry Mares’ feet, but not so good for the water table.
6 of one, half dozen of another, if you know what I mean.

It’s been a lot though, in a short period of time.
And we all keep wondering how amazing the hay crops would have been if we’d gotten this 3 months ago.
And in case anyone is wondering, that coffee money y’all keep giving me?
1. Thank you again.
2. Goes into the hay fund.
Because when I make any money on Farm stuff, that’s where it goes.
It is one of our biggest expenses, but them nags, they’re lifers here so we pay it with a grin…well, sometimes a grimace.
Life wouldn’t be the same with out ’em though.

Saturday we did have a bit of a break from the rain.
So Hubby fixed the heater fan on the truck, took the air conditioner out of the window (BOOOOOOOO!!!!) and made a run to the potato farm.
I literally cannot in my garden space grow enough potatoes for us for winter.
That Hubby of mine does love his spuds.
So we get from the potato farm, because 50lbs is $10 (that’s the ugly cull ones…I don’t care about looks, neither does Hubby).

While we had a break in the rain, I took the chance to go around the Farm and take some pictures…
The best of the day was this one:

Xena and BokBok

Xena was not a happy feline, having to share her food with the chicken.

Greedy chickens sure do love to eat the cat food though.
