Pictures from the Farm

 I know I have been MIA lately....  So I am giving you a few pictures from the last week.  We have been so busy (despite the chillier temps) with weeding garden, strawberries, we even sheered ONE of our sheep...

We are busy, but I am enjoying it.  It is rewarding!  Having those berries in the freezer, knowing that the garden is producing when the grocery bill is tight.  And the harvest, Mmmm mmmm mmmm!!!  Delicious! 

On to the pictures!

Our beef cattle

Our ducks by the pond

Some of our goat babies

Our Jacob Sheep Mommy, Lindsay

 Two of our ducks hatched their own babies...  And they are super cute.  So are the boys in these pictures... :)

Hope you enjoyed these for now...  I WILL be back soon.  I want to hear how the Clothesline Challenge has gone for each of you!  That will come up in the next few days...  Get your electric (or gas) bills out and be ready to share on Monday!  Also, how is your garden doing???  I can't wait to hear AND to show you ours also...

More later!

So cute! Your farm is amazing. We are hoping to get chickens soon. Just trying to find somewhere that will sell us Buckeye chicks in early August. Proving to be much more difficult than I thought.

Boys and ducklings are definitely cute together! I don't have a dryer for the last few months and it does make a difference in electric bill just hanging out those clothes.

While I have been a lifelong line dryer (yup, even have frozen laundry pictures to prove it) I am hoping that cutting off the tv servcie (cable) will drop my electric bill by at least 20%.
Of course we needed to run the fans full blast for a couple days, but that was a necessity!

Clothesline Challenge is going great. My goal is to completely stop using my dryer but I'm not sure hubby and kids will be able to tolerate crispy towels! I tried adding vinegar to rinse cycle, any other ideas? Any way, I think the bearings are going out on our 14 yr old dryer. I told hubby I'll just keep using line and he said "we'll see when the snow starts flying". I tell ya he's no fun!!!

what a picturesque farm! those boys will have amazing childhood memories.

and thanks for the prompt to find more energy saving techniques... I live in the city right now, so it isn't particularly feasible, but I would love to make the switch, at least for sheets and towels- would love to learn more about how to line dry properly :)
