I hope everyone is doing great. Things up here are going well. The weather has been beautiful. Jen and I were able to go garage saling on Saturday and purchase a Blazer full of stuff. All very valuable to us =). It rained and I was excited thinking that there wouldn't be too many people out, I guess everyone else thought the same thing. I also worked a lot on flower beds and got a lot of other things done. Shawn worked all weekend putting up block for Ralph and Judy as they are building on Spirit Lake Road. They got the block work done (13 rows of 12 inch block). I have a goal of getting my flower beds done before Anita and others get up to the Range.
This next weekend, as long as it remains dry enough, we have a lot of field work to do. I'll be plowing, Shawn spreading ashes. Hopefully the weather cooperates.
One of my cats had her kittens. She had one and lost 2. She wouldn't feed it, so we brought it in the house and fed it, sadly, it didn't make it. My other cat has had her kittens, but she must be caring for them. She is gone for hours, comes back and eats me out of house and home, then disappears again. Hopefully we'll see the kittens soon.
As for the chickens, so far, we have lost 3 (that's not bad). They are getting really big so we should be butchering them in a month or less. Someone asked about the food. We have been buying a lot of food. So far, we bought 2 bags of chick starter, then probably 8-10 bags of meat bird feed. They are drinking 8-10 gallons of water per day. Makes a person wonder why they bother raising chickens, but then you eat them and they taste so much better than store bought chicken.
Hope everyone has a great day.
