Another week on the homestead and we've been keeping very busy.
I've been doing my share of procrastibaking and made cheesecakes with guava sauce for all the neighbors. I still have an excess of cream cheese that needs to either be used or stored in the next few day so my neighbors may be subjected to more cheesecake or I will finally figure out how to store and freeze it.
The chickens seem to be growing by the day. They are just over 4 months old now, by my calculations (which are shotty at best), and the smaller ones (not pictured) are getting to be around 2 months soon. Some breads will lay eggs as early as 4 months but most won't start till they are closer to 6 to 8 months.
The goats are doing well and are getting close to that time where we will want to keep them separate.
Charlotte is loving it here. You don't realize how much food you throw out until you have a piggy to feed. We compost almost all our veggie waste and even have a biopod for our meat waste. But left overs and odds and end that can't go into either now go to Charlotte.
While walking the grounds we found one our trees with tiny oblong acorns. We are told it's a water oak.
We also received delivery of two beautiful sheep, which my mom gifted us, to help with the lawn mowing. Sheep, not goats, are the lawn mowers of the farm. Goats prefer weeds, Sheep prefer grass.
Charlotte is doing well and is very happy in the back pasture.
She also tries to turn every spot we put her water into a mud wallow.
We are back to laying tile, thanks to a little help from our friends, and very hurriedly planing and building an aviary as we are expecting more birds than you can shake a stick at.
Wish us luck.
