I have no idea where this little surprise path will take me but obviously on an adventure, want to come?
On the home front... I moved the bucks to there new home a couple of days ago and already the does are showing interest! Too soon! Time to get the calender out and start making notes. I cant believe its almost time to breed. It was just last week when I sold the last of the bucklings, of course that is my own fault, got too attached. Yikes. I love this!
The garden is finally coming together. Fencing should be completed after the weekend and next week will be all about planting and praying for just a few weeks of warm evenings (60's) and sunshine filled days.
The first Farm table dinner at the new place is this weekend. So excited! two sold out nights. I picked up my hog from Pork and Greens at 4 states processing today and have a whole hog in my fridge ready to bless and nourish us all.
