Well, like most everywhere else it is cold and unpleasant here. That doesn't leave a whole lot to blog about!!!! I think just about everyone is housebound and anxious for spring! Is it just me or does this winter seem long.I am usually a winter person,of course our winters here in South Texas make some of my more northern friends snort and chuckle! I did find a surprise this morning.Can you guess what it is?
Here's another look!
OK,if you haven't guessed,here's a better view!
I usually keep up with these things by writing everything down on my farm calender but this time I forgot! These little bunnies have been here for awhile! Sorry, these are not pets! They too have a destiny of feeding our family! This is a homestead don't forget! We have made a point,especially with The Boy, not to get attached to the rabbits.Which,by the way, is not so easy! After all they are cute and fluffy! We solved this problem by letting The Boy have a little pet rabbit in the house,his name is Stanley. I would like to sing the praises of rabbits as an easy to raise food source.They take minimal space and make tons of fertilizer,always a plus on a farm! All the jokes are true about rabbits,they are prolific!!!!You will have to dress them out yourself,so if you absolutely don't have the stomach to do that then they wouldn't be a good choice for you.It is always hard at first to kill and dress out your animals and it should be! If it is easy for someone I think..well...something may not be quiet right with them! It does get a little easier over time but I don't think we ever put out of our minds the gift each animal gives us .We do take comfort in the fact our animals are raised humanely,fresh air ,sunshine and chemical free! We know we are doing things right!
So there you have it,even slow dreary days can bring a surprise!
