I announce plans to publish a follow-up post, and last night my internet was out. The joys of country living … ;)
A bit too late tonight to finish – 1am now. I’m supposed to be heading to CANTON First Monday Trade Days this weekend again for a little browsing R&R. I don’t need to buy things (though I never get out of there without buying SOMEthing … maybe I’ll find willow trees on sale cheap? I’m coveting some!). We shall see.
(For those who have asked for directions, click on the link above to go to the First Monday’s website – you can get directions from anywhere and lots more good information on their site!)
First Monday was featured in Country Living magazine if you’d like to read more.
So, I’ll catch up as soon as I can. I haven’t had time to finish the predator/free-range chicken post, and I don’t want to publish it in it’s current poorly-written state.
Homestead happenings – I sold some of the geese today. Playgirl and Pinky will be going to a new home, as well as Josiah, Patience, and a few others. I’m keeping “The Babies” though … they STILL think I am their mama, even though they are about 18 or 19 months old now, and will probably provide me with a new little flock of goslings here in a few months. And one of the Nuggets is setting tight on eggs – in one of the goat-shed feed troughs. Fortunately the feed troughs are not in use by the goats these days, so she is setting undisturbed. I should have chicks soon. Everyone else is starting to think it’s spring, with the new growth from all the rain and slightly warmer temperatures, but I’m betting winter isn’t ready to let go just yet. Tomorrow night will be near-freezing again, so we’re not ready for too many kinds of babies for a while yet, and the garden is still sleeping.
Well that’s my quick update. Will publish that predator post as soon as I can get to it. Goodnight all!
