Spent the weekend getting a few things done around the place. Tammy is working on the garden. Trying something different this year. She is planting through paper. We've tried landscaping fabric and black plastic. She's hoping this paper will degrade and it won't be such a battle to clean up at the end of the season. She has a bunch of strawberries going in where the cows where over the winter as well. Sold a bunch of raspberries to a friend, hope they do well for him, they sure did for us. Got some cleanup done around the garage and pulled the haybine up for some servicing. Won't be long and the hay will be ready. Might have a line on a few more acres but it is a few miles away, we'll have to see how things go. Will be sending a few more goats to auction this Saturday if things work out. We hope to be down to 3 does, 2 old hands, Bridgette and Cindy and a new doeling Ginger out of Cindy. Have to dig out the chicken stuff soon, they'll be here in a few weeks.

Well it was quite a weekend. The boy turned 13 on the 13th so we had a golden birthday party for him on Saturday. We used the church basement and invited a bunch of friends and family. It was a great little get together, everybody ate till they were full, the kids had fun and we got caught up with all the news from everybody. Got the urea for the corn fields Sat morning and spread it after the party. Got the corn planted after church Sunday then we made some fence and got the cows out on pasture. They were starting to get a little upset with us for taking so long. Did a little cleanup around the place after that. Busy day for a Sunday. We let the goats out to graze a little as well. I'll have to come up with some more fencing supplies and get them a pasture. So here's some pics of the weekend.
This is Christopher's cake.
Some of the food. Tammy's folks deep fried a turkey and that was wonderful
Getting the corn in.
Big Money (the black one) and Fireball out on the new pasture. Still have the goat pen to clean out if we ever get a weekend with some free time. And hay season will be here soon, might have a couple of acres to make.....
