Adelaide had her baby! He’s feisty and of course cute as can be. Rose’s baby is already munching on grass and hay...what an early starter! Siesta time for Papa. Yesterday’s Breakfast time...then Ablutions.

Beautiful babies! How quickly they grow. Rose had a boy all by herself. We walked out and there he was, all cleaned and polished! Handsome little fella isn’t he?

We were doubly blessed this Easter morning! Mollie had a new bull calf so Easter is his name. Mrs Chick hatched another and I haven’t been able to catch them on camera yet. The last four turned out to be 1 girl and 3 boys. Savannah’s twins are growing like weeds. New pics soon to come; it’s raining cats and dogs here today.

As always, time passes quickly. All the cow babies have lovely new homes; I miss their jumping and running in the evening before the mamas give them baths. The baby lambs are ridiculously cute! We’ve had a few hot days and a couple of downpours but over all it’s been a great spring. The pear trees bloomed like crazy and we planted more asparagus as well as some carrots, peas and potatoes. We’ve been pulling weeds like mad and there’s still no end in sight...and don’t even get me going about the snails - yick! I’m sorely tempted to let the sheep at the weeds but I think the crops would likely be their first victims...maybe one at a time on a harness? And the fig trees are leafing out nicely with the kadota already making little figs. I am out of fig jelly; it seems to be the favorite. I think it’s a toss up with the muscadines. The grape jelly is a lovely sweet-tart.

Over the holidays we met a great couple who have sheep. AndrewsFarm1188.com. Now if I can figure out how to make a link...

Yikes! It’s been an awfully long time! I imagine everyone has been there... with the busy, busy, busy. We continue on with the barn, stall work and fencing of course. Naturally the mamas continue having babies too. Grace and Autumn are the heifer calves born in the latter half of last year and are already eating feed with their Mamas. Georgia delivered a cute lamb in December we named Winter. Her tail waggle just cracks me up! Our first baby of 2019 is a bull calf, Prosper (wishes for the new year). He was followed just a few days later by River. She was born when it had been raining cats and dogs and we wondered if it was going to “come a river”. With the frequent rains, we and the critters have been slogging through a fair bit of mud. Little frogs abound. I’ve been watching where I step since they are so tiny...no bigger than my thumbnail! The rye has come up very nicely although some areas have gotten walked into the mud (what can you do except call it green fertilizer?). Our little hen that made her home here last summer hatched 4 chicks with the kind assistance of the rooster that moved in from next door. She’s been a terrific mama. Until next time (and I’ll try harder to not wait so long!!).

Our three Spring 2017 heifers found a new home all together with a lovely barn! We’ve were blessed with four winter baby calves. A new ram lamb has joined our family as well as two girl potbelly piggies. We’ve been busy making barn stalls for new mamas as well as fencing for rotational grazing. The past year’s fall/winter rye pastures were lovely.

July
The fig trees made so much fruit this year. Preserves abound!

Aug 18
It’s been a bit hot this summer. Looking forward to “fall”. We have two more calves from late Spring and one just born. All mamas and babies are doing well. All of the other babies and the young bull have new homes. The lamb has grown up some but we aren’t sure he is able to quite reach to do his work yet. The girls are still a bit taller than he is! We fenced in more area, opened it up and the cows have cleared it all out already.

In the garden, we’ve had a bumper crop of cucumbers so we now have lots of pickles. One more batch to go and I think the plants will be spent. The second planting of okra are starting to take off now. We’ve resumed work on the front garden area and have several new planters and raised beds. The pear tree gave us a good few so it’s time to make pear butter.

After the good rain we just had, the grass has grown quite a bit. We’ve started removing the perimeter fencing at the front garden so we can clear out that space. It has gotten very overgrown. After that it’s time to lay out the gravel paths then start the small water collector and greenhouse and replace the fencing.

Sept 25
It’s been raining quite a bit! The temperatures are more tolerable and the grass is growing. We’ve just had another beautiful baby heifer. One of our cow/calf pairs have gone to a great new home.

Oct 6
We’ve still been getting rain! The grass is growing a mile a minute (and so have the mosquitoes). The small greenhouse is on hold for a bit until the ground is not so wet. The pear butter is done and the okra are now putting out quite a few each day. The hot peppers are making so many that we will have to can them. The bull calf is being weaned and it seems his mama is more upset about it than he is. He loves his food! The ram lamb is growing up. He is starting to get a wrinkly face and push the wether around some. The past droughts caused a few of our oaks too much stress and they had to be cut down. We did get a bit of burning done between bouts of rain. The peafowl still roam and we’ve quite the collection of tail feathers.

It really is unbelievable how fast time goes by. Sometimes I just can’t fathom it.

Spring 2017 baby girls

This has been a terribly and wonderfully busy year. Time has flown by like a tornado whipping through the pages of a book! We have 3 more baby calves (all girls) and have added 2 sheep to the flock. Right now we should call the place "Soggy Bottom" with all the rain brought in from the hurricane. It has replenished the pond and the field grasses and oaks which were much in need.

The farm family is growing by leaps and bounds! We have 3 new Heifers and Adelaide presented us with a lovely calf we've named Lily. Houdini and Mrs Piggy had little pigs who flop like limp dishrags to get a belly scratch.

This spring the asparagus (that Patsy cow didn't snack on!) sold like hotcakes so we will definitely be putting many more of those in. We also had a good crop of mini carrots that sold out quickly at the market. The broccoli had just made heads when I noticed the bees were out and about. It was still too early for any wildflowers so we let them and the cauliflowers go to flower and were there ever hordes of bees! We got a bee box and want to get a hive started in the near future.

Now we have zucchini, beans, potatoes, cucumbers and pattypan squash growing. Eddie put in a crop of roses too...he just couldn't resist.

All the rain has kept the pond full so we have yet to dig out the other half of it but the grazing has stayed a beautiful green and kept up with the munching from the cattle and sheep. The hay has been plentiful and so sweet smelling!

We've been adding and renovating pens and paddocks for the new additions and next we will get Georgia and Charlotte the sheep a hubby.

12/10/2015

The past months have been very busy ones! We now have 3 calves (1 heifer and 2 bulls) growing like weeds. Miss Piggy has a new beau. A fox was getting the chickens (poor girls 😢) so now we have a young Akbash named Peanut and of course he has to have sheep so we have Charlotte and Georgia. It won't be much longer and they can have a hubby. The new garden construction is coming along and we've made more progress on the perimeter fence as well. Mr Peacock is getting some very nice plumage. Mrs Peacock may hatch a few babies this year. They go walkabout the neighborhood and fly across the paddock. It's a beautiful sight to see them gliding along and for such distances too!

It's the first cold snap. We have decided to move the garden to the other side of the property to take advantage of the very resilient coastal growing in the existing garden. We've started clearing and have built a couple of raised beds so far. I have grown tired of seeing the same veggies at the farmers markets so I planted cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and brussel sprouts. I will put up a green house to over winter the peppers in and get a head start on the next plants. I'm also planning to build a cold frame. We finished a new shed for feed storage

08/08/2014

We have an abundance of fresh eggs. I haven't kept up with sales since I haven't gone to one of the markets yet. I've resorted to feeding a few to the pups just to keep room in the egg fridge. I need to buy a canopy and a couple very large coolers then join farmers markets in both Bastrop and Austin. We have plenty of pork in the freezer as well. We've raised a few piglets for shares sold this year. The sow is old enough now to buy her a "hubby" and then begin to advertise raising piglets for sale raised to order. We took a lovely trip to Stonewall for peaches and canned and made jam as well. I believe we will be making an annual trip of it from now on. We will add syrup to the sales list as well. So far this year we have wild mustang grape, fig and peach jellies and canned peaches as well as tomatoes from our garden. I also tried my hand at pickling the quail eggs and have left the rest for the hen to set on. Perhaps we will have some that hatch. I planted quite a few asparagus and they've really taken off. We noted that the markets in Bastrop seem to all have the same veggies for sale so we thought it would be nice to try some different ones. When it cools again we plan to lay in a large crop of broccoli. Our red roasting peppers are growing quite well also although they will need to go into shelter for the winter again when it cools down. The heat this summer doesn't seem to be as bad as last year. I do believe we've had more rain at the beginning as well that helped keep the higher temperatures at bay for a while. Here's hoping the latter part of the year brings more! Good eating!

Time flies! We've been taking advantage of the wonderful weather. It's too bad we can't clone ourselves. We are always coming up with more to put on the "honey-do" list and then there is always something that needs to be fixed or added to. We've made a start on planting veggies and then finished up a huge "yard" to keep the birds safe until we can finish off the perimeter fencing. Apparently some folks don't think they need to keep their dogs on their own place! One more side of the paddock fencing is complete and two sections are blocked for rotational grazing. We added to the cow family...2 mini herefords, Rufus and Patsy. Our fantastic neighbors across had been wanting peacocks so we gifted them some. Now they've grown up and decided to come stay with the other birds! At least they aren't noisy so far.

It seems the cold weather has caught up with us at last! We have some new additions. Two bourbon red turkey toms, some red quail and jersey giant pullets. A few winter veggies are in the beds and we've put away the peppers. I'm planning to get a few starts going and put together a small greenhouse in the garden for a few of the more tender veggies. The pond is still holding water from the deluge the other week. The ducks are happy, happy! We've finished with one entire side of the fencing. Hooray! I bought more lemon trees. The one I have has 6 beautiful lemons on it. We have a big pile of really nice compost that is getting bigger each week. The cow and piggies are great contributors!

Has anybody else ever noticed how addictive chickens are? I always seem to want variety and more, more, more. It's a compulsion!
