Spring is here and the work continues, working on the garden and cross fence for pasture. Discing and reseeding one pasture, we have decided to remove a few trees. This will help to expand the garden area.

Sooooooooo, it's been awhile. I started a handyman venture, and subcontracted for internet install. Covid came and work went through the roof. Family member pasted away, well pump went out again, premi calf born, fire burned right down 75' from the house. Phone, power, internet, cell phones all down. So it has been one of those years. Now school is at home, no babysitter and a wild horse coming home soon. LIFE it never stops, still working away at all the goals. Garden turned out really well, huge pumpkins and a bumper tomato crop. Soon as we finish up a few things I will get some pics up.

We started rasing meat rabbits, and converted a old barn to use for it.
The fertility continues

As life goes so does growing, we have kept at it and converted the outer pastures to market garden space. Got rid of the cows and down to just sheep and rabbits. Garden turned out even better this year. We have added some new equipment and are now working on getting setup for major farmers market next year.

Thanks
3HR
