We finally did it. We dispatched, dressed, and cooked our first homegrown rabbit. Actually, it was Brian who did all that. I just watched. Barely. We did this months back before we moved to our new homestead but things got crazy busy and I forgot to tell you about it.
We did it! We closed on our first paid-for property! It’s not our forever homestead (it’s only a quarter acre and it’s not farm land) but it is a great starter property. We paid $14,000 and that included a quarter acre of land, well, septic, existing power pole, carport, and patio. Notice I did not mention the house. We didn’t pay for the house because the house not worth anything.
I have 7 hens who have access to 3 laying boxes, yet they ALL lay in ONE box. I have personally shown each one of them the other boxes that is at their disposal but for whatever reason they continue to ignore my accommodations.
I’m a documentary junkie. You can keep your cable TV and expensive movie tickets- give me a documentary and I’m good for the evening. I love them because you learn about the world around you rather than just being mindlessly entertained. Don’t get me wrong- these documentaries are entertaining and even more so because they’re real.
Not sure if you’ve noticed but I’ve been MIA for the past couple of months. Here’s why… I’ve been brewing up this little munchkin. Her name is Anna and after 3 1/2 hours she was born at home on October 17 at 8:37 pm weighing in at 7 lbs. 4 oz. This is the story is of how she came into the world.
Psst. I’m gonna share a little secret with you… I think we’re in an economic depression. Don’t believe me? Consider the fact that more than 100 million Americans are on some sort of government food assistance right now. If EBT cards didn’t exist, just imagine how long the soup lines would be!
