So many blessings this weekend! Saturday morning, Mr Vaughn stopped by to say someone was wanting a quarter of a cow, and were we still interested in a half. YES!! So, sometime soon we will be buying a side of beef to fill the freezer. Saturday afternoon, we were filling the bed of the truck with metal. Mr H, the worlds greatest farm neighbor just had it laying out in the barn, and said we could have it. It's just what we need for our brooder shed, rabbitry, and barn. We will go back soon to get the rest, we couldn't fit it all yesterday.
Yet another learning curve with the chickens, we may have an egg eater. A goose egg and a chicken egg that our little bantam was sitting on disappeared. That hen house is as tight as Ft Knox, so I know no critter got in and ate them. At least with the new load of straw Mr Farmer put in there, the eggs aren't freezing now.
Calling for snow tomorrow, the cold this week has been brutal. It's back to work for me tomorrow, and back to school for the little farmers. Looking forward to getting back to our routine.
