Fun on the farm. 

More adventures and additions on the farm

So the other day I go grab my last goat to milk. (Girlie goat our Nigerian dwarf). I put her in the milk stand. Then leave to grab some grain for her.  I come back to this 

Ummm yeah. That’s not gonna work. The duck figured she should get her evening treat while she sits on the stand with the goat. 

We also have some new members on the farm. 

This hen hatched out 24 ducklings! That’s quite the achievement! Bout a week later. Tall grass duck hatched out her ducklings 

She had 7 total. I’ve already got them all SOLD. All 31 of them! 6 went to their new home today. The rest go tomorrow. 

Then to wait for the next round to hatch. I should have some hatching on the 18th. And one other nest at any point. As I don’t know when she started sitting.  

Next we got some meat chickens. That we will butcher in 15 weeks or so. 

Then while cleaning the garage for the 2nd time this year. This time however I was hoping to power wash the floor. No clue there yet. My one hose broke. Go figure. 

But we ran across this spider 

We did manage to power wash the main porch. Next to stain it  

The lawn is still unmowed! The saga continues. I’d say the yard looks a bit more like a jungle now. But not for to much longer. The new mower is on its way!! Come Friday the lawn will meet it’s maker or mower. Ha! We will get to put the mower through its paces that’s for sure. 

Well that’s all for now. Off to do more chores.

Alright first off I do all my writing via my phone. So please don't judge me to harshly on the typos. I try to catch them but will most definitely miss a few. Next I'm not great at writing the about me sections of these things. You'll find out more about me by reading my posts vs me trying to squish something into the about me section. But here's a little tid bit. My name is Misty. I am 31 year old country gal. I'm a wife and mom. My son will be known as J in my blog posts. And hubby well will be hubby. Easy enough. I am a stay at home mom. Where not only do I tend to my son. But I run our small scale farm. Which includes cows, ducks, pigs, dairy goats, a pony, a dog and a cat. And coming soon chickens. We got rid of our last set of chickens over the winter. To make room for some young hens. We also have 2 large gardens and 2 smaller ones. I raise and grow about 90 percent of the food we eat. Lots of canning in the fall. I also enjoy hunting and fishing. So be on the look out for those stories in the blog. I created my blog to have a place to write. To share my thoughts/ramblings. Share our adventures. Good or bad. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
