This will be a very short blog this week. We are so busy, not a lot of extra time. Weather has been good though we certainly still do need a lot more rain. A good all day downpour is what we are after and then a warm up to about 20C and sunny and not much less overnight. That would be perfect. But we’ll takes what we gets and do our best with it. The major chore this week has been getting manure out of the barn from a pen where it is fairly well rotted and then spreading this on the garden. Along with that Aerron has been doing fencing repairs and putting up new fence for both cows and for chickens.
We have had two calves born over the week and they are both perfectly fine. One little bull and one little heifer. Nice looking calves they are. Horses, cows, sheep and the poultry are all just fine and liking this weather and this time of year. There are few flies right now, so no one is bothered yet by that. That is a great thing.
More onions planted but not much else. Progress slowed somewhat. This must be a week when we get a lot into the ground.
Lots of eggs these days should you need any. We’ll try to get a stand set up out by the road so as to sell eggs and later on our vegetables. Eggs are $4 per dozen and we have duck and chicken eggs available, both the same price. These are not organic eggs as we do not feed them an organic feed as yet but they are allowed out on pasture every day.
