Life has been moving quickly around here. I’ve began digging mini-kraters for fall seed planting. It has not been going well as the ground is hard as a rock. I’ve began making the new kitchen island butcher block. It’s going poorly to say the least. Hopefully it turns out well!
The animals are all doing well. The babies are growing. Unfortunately at least half of the baby chickens are roosters and will be culled this fall. The ducklings and peachicks genders are still indiscernible.
Mama pea has been buys teaching her children how to break into the food and how best to tear up my garden for dust baths.
We got a new puppy. He is a great pyr/Anotilian shepherd. He is adorable and prefers to be outside. Can barely keep him in the house. He is learning to like the poultry, though he was initially terrified.
We named him Ramsey after our two favorite people, Dave and Gordon.
If he’s like his mom he’ll be a hyper guard. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not yet.
Prince is losing his tail now that mating season is over. I’ve been collecting it from all over.
We rescued all the tadpoles we could from shrinking water puddles. They are non-existent puddles now but the tadpoles are doing well in their swimming pool.
Our oldest is starting school in a week and we have been busy preparing. Life, it is busy!
