Friday Morning Ramblings on the Hobby Farm
After my first pot of coffee this morning, I will again become awake. My husband is building a small fire in the livingroom fireplace to knock the chill off the air this morning. He worked the nightshift again last night and will be snuggling into the bed soon. I am glad he has the next two days off. He needs some rest and we still have some winterizing to do around the farm.
Storey’s Guide to Raising Rabbits, 4th EditionAfter feeding all the animals including myself this morning, I will start raking and cleaning the yard today. Removing some of the dead plants from the flower and vegetable beds around the house itself will help to add to our compost bins today. There is plastic to hang over the Rabbit Houses, chicken coop, duck pens, and the goat house. When my husband gets up he will be running some of the wiring for the new heat lamps we have for all the animals housing. We plan to keep them all warm this winter. Reminds me of the Aviary we had. It was warmer than our own house at times and I loved spending hours in there with the animals just watching and listening to them. I miss my Exotic Birds, but understand our reason for not keeping them. Which will be another post later about it.
Storey’s Guide to Raising Dairy Goats, 4th Edition: Breeds, Care, Dairying, MarketingWe plan to add a Billy Goat in with our Nanny Goat “Nellie”. We are hoping for a marriage soon that will bring us babies next year. I hope to get lots of milk for us too from the venture of ours. Well with that said I have drained my last drop of coffee from my cup and it is time to roll up my sleeves and get to work.
I hope all my readers have a safe and Happy Friday.
Stay tuned to what is in store for tomorrow.
