As The Days Grow Short Again

So I'm having some computer issues. We all know how super fun that is. Mercury in retrograde just beat both my computers to a pulp. But here is a post I STARTED mid-September:

Yes, I'm sorry, I went missing again, but I have a good excuse. I was in New York City for hip replacement surgery. You might have seen a few NYC photos on our Facebook page or Instagram. That was me, recuperating while Frank and Maddrey kept plugging along here and got more things checked off the To Done List!

Oh, we were on TV on the local news - if you missed our little interview on WABI-TV, here's the link

Now, here's a quick rundown of How Things Are Going:

Our meat birds are growing huge and gorgeous and will be going to "freezer camp" once the weather cools off a bit more and we have time for processing.  We will keep some little Silkies and Barred Rocks for eggs, but these gorgeous Label Rouge chickens won't have to worry about winter, shall we say...

The corn is as high as an elephant's eye! And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky! As long as we can keep the livestock out of the sweet corn, we'll have some for dinner and a LOT to share! And they'll get their turn when the feed corn is ready.

The sunflowers are taller than we can reach and should provide a LOAD of seeds.

Esmerelda, our little heifer, is growing and beautiful.

We are making progress on the new building.

Although we still have to put all this together! 

But what has focus right now is all the hay we need to mow and bale.

Frank and Maddrey (and Pippa!) have been driving in circles for days and days. Makin' hay while the sun shines - and rain is coming, so they are out till well after dark.

And our TetherMade baskets are now in SIX stores! But you can still order them online. 

More work updates to come.
