It's like I fell off the planet or something. Roger reminded me that I haven't posted anything new here in over 3 months. Oops! We've been busy, of course, so this entry is going to be more like a string of random thoughts with accompanying photos.
The garden is just about spent, and I am glad for the respite. Despite the summer being rather cold and wet, we managed to put up a lot of tomatoes and other garden goodies.
We also had quite a challenge this summer keeping the poultry from being eaten by various predators. We lost a huge number of chickens - both layers and meat bird - and almost all of our turkeys before we finally won the battle. Hard lessons were learned and we're planning steps to take now to avoid a similar repeat of tragedy next year.
I'll see you next month! Meanwhile, I'm going to go stack firewood. Hahahaha! No, of course not; I'm going to have my minions stack firewood. Just as soon as I can find them.
