This blog is a journal of the simple living on a small 2 and a half acre farm. The ups and downs. The good and the not so good. Adventures of Hidden Haven animals and some of my own. The sharing of our frugal, hardworking, attempt to be as self sufficient as possible. Please stop by often as we love company!
Photo is of Diva checking the first of her 4 babies. The goats around here like for me to get a shower, into my PJ's and have a wet head before they decide to go into labor.
Today was a nice warm sunny day that we spent working outside. We cleaned Williams truck out and repacked it for him to go back out on the road the first of the week. We moved some goats around. Checked on our cabbage, onions and lettuce. The rain storm we got last night may have brought trees down but it sure helped our garden grow! The animals are loving the warm weather. Our hens have given us over 20 eggs each day the past week. We moved Diva and her babies back to the goat pen. They are sharing it with Leonard. Sammi and her babies are still at the maternity pen till the babies are dehorned then they will join Diva's family. We won't need the maternity pen again till July for BossyToes and Blinkin. I trimmed the butterfly bushes today, worked on my fairy garden and cleaned one flower bed. Have lots more to get done. We scrubbed the cushions for our patio chairs and swing. They are drying on the clothesline. I plan on getting the wicker set out for the front porch over the weekend. Spring is on its way here. I know we will have more cold weather but the worst such as it was is behind us. It was a mild winter and am hoping for a mild summer without droughts! Ms. Fran had a fairly good day. She was ready for us to put her to bed and when William kept talking to Fran's daughter instead of helping get Fran to bed she told him to hush and get busy! We all laughed and got busy getting her to bed. Nothing really exciting going on but each day is a blessing that I am happy to have. Hope your day was blessed!
