Animals and Chores


Life has felt pretty crazy in the past few months. Jeremy and I jumped into cows and meat chickens, but then our goats turned into a whole lot of extra work and money. Now everyone seems to be healthy and slowing down. We don't have meat chickens anymore (they're all in the freezer). We don't have any bottle babies anymore. So chore time takes about 10 minutes now and the boys can do it by themselves.

The Pig Sty


We've gotten our new pigs, but we're wanting them to do some work for us in the midst of growing some of our meat. Plus, Jeremy likes pigs to stay contained since they can make a mess everywhere they go.


Time to Clean!


Ahhh...

Let me tell you, life was rough for a couple of weeks around here. We ordered the washer and dryer, set a time limit for us to get the mudroom done, and got to work.


Deadlines


So Jeremy decided a while ago that he wanted the mudroom done by the 4th so that we could buy a washer and dryer on sale. Well, it didn't get done. A little bit, here and there, but not anything to brag about.

Raising Meat


This winter, Jeremy decided to raise some meat chickens. It's funny being married to him, because I've been talking about homesteading and planning it and generally just thinking about it for years, and nothing feels like it ever happens.
