Yes,I know ,I have been away for awhile! I have been under the weather and when you homestead certain things have to get done no matter what so blogging was put on the back burner. I am one of those people who never go to the Dr....never! I will my self out of pure, stubborn, hardheadedness not to get sick! A germ doesn't dare invade my body! So ...I have been toughing it out,my problems are not of the germ nature though.I have had the most terrible hay fever know to man! I have made an appointment withe the Boy's allergist ,there is no way I can live in South East Texas with out some allergy help.The allergy drops have worked wonders for The Boy so I might as well give them a try as much as I hate to give in and admit surrender and actually go to the Dr.! My other problem,yeah there's another one,is I have been walking around looking like Frankenstein! My neck is completely and agonizingly locked up! This has been an ongoing thing that I have always toughed out but with all the farm work,50 lb feed bags,100 lb bales of hay,animal wrestling,garden tilling,..ect..ect..., has flared up worse than ever!This neck thing started about 10 years ago ,we were in a horrible accident and my Hubby's neck was broken in 2 places! So I have started visiting a chiropractor....sigh! I will admit he is doing wonders for me.
I have not been laying around doing nothing though! Like I said, things have to get done! I got almost all the garden planted and the seeds are coming up good! Sorry,no picture this morning of that.I got all my hot house seedlings in the ground...I went a little overboard on the tomatoes, 60 plants in the garden plus another 7 up by the house.I may have went over board on winter squash too.....I can't help it it is an addiction I tell you! Too bad weeding isn't an addiction,I hate that part and always have a healthy crop of weeds mixed in! I also got the hot house taken down.
I got one more short raised bed done and half of my deep long raised bed done. These are the plants I still have left to get planted from the hot house once I get this bed finished.
It is beautifully green here!
Sweetie,Bonnie and Clyde graze happily on the lovely grass!
It has been a long time since they have had the luxury of yummy grass because of the drought and heatwave we had last year.
My irises are starting to bloom! They are one of my favorite flowers,I love all the old fashioned flowers!
This is one of the red frizzled bannies. Look how it's feathers are growing!
The goatie boys are doing great! They are so tame and sweet.They run right up to the door of their pen for some head scratchins! Hoss is looking for a snack!
When he learns my finger is empty he tries Tube Sock's ear!
You can tell in this picture the big size deference in the two! Still nothing from Doodah.She is over due now by a day.She looks ready to explode if you ask me! Me and The Boy are having a bet on how many are in there! He thinks 2, I say 3! She needs to hurry up so we can settle this bet on who is the best goatie fortune teller!
I am looking forward to visiting everyone and seeing what you all have been up too while I was gone!
