September grazing

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 I must admit the pastures this year are really looking great!  Usually by this time of year,  every thing has been grazed down so much that I'm feeding mostly all hay.  Not this year!  This is most likely due to 2 things: We have had abundant…

A slow it down Sunday

Sunday, September 14, 2014  I am very aware that in less than 2 weeks it will be Open Barn Days, but today we're taking a break and enjoying our grandson again. We'll hunt for special rocks to add to "our collection", we'll collect the prettiest feathers from the hen house…

May I put away the umbrella now?

Wednesday, September 10, 2014  I know we need the rain, but I'm actually hoping for things to dry out a little today.  If the forecasters are right, we're in for lots of sunshine today.   We certainly wont need to turn the irrigation on.    Our September newsletter went out yesterday. If…
