Wicked gorgeous weekend!

Moving the old pig hut

It really was.  We got a lot of farm work accomplished.  It was exhausting, but that’s the way it goes.  The weather cooperated, and we were hot out there, but luckily there was a nice breeze.

We have 4 paddocks separated by cattle panels and two of those areas have not been pressed into service for awhile.  One of them houses our gigantic compost pile, and one is farther back and grassy.  So we needed to move the ‘pig’ hut from the one, to the farthest.  We got the boys and Jingle into that area, and they are having a good time eating up the weeds and the grasses.

On Saturday a friend of ours came down and we were able to get the CDT shots done on the goat babies, plus some foot trimming.  Along with that, we planted our giant pumpkin plants and are crossing our fingers that we can prevent them from being eaten by deer.  And so it goes!  4 more school days until the kids are released and teachers have a few more after that, but not a big deal.

I can taste the summer, it’s close, but tonight we are in the 40’s and it was a day for sweaters and turtlenecks!  June 15th.  Gotta love it!
