Now that we are "mostly" settled I am enjoying the farm more and more everyday. There's so much to do! Which makes this life so perfect for me.
As for sewing... well... I have some fabric for curtains picked out! And I'm going to embroidery my bedroom curtains... other than that I don't have much planned... sewing will be become what I mostly do in the winter I think...
As for crocheting.. none of that right now... my weak little hands are building strength to milk the girls! Its no easy thing... but so worth it. Gracie is due anyday now... she is bred to my American Blue buck. She is an American Chinchilla. They are heritage breed rabbits that were bred for meat and their fur. They are now pretty rare since most people who bred for meat breed all white Zealands or Florida whites because they grow super fast. I don't mind waiting an extra month for better meat though.
I love eating small individual serving birds for some reason.. they always have super tender meat!
Here's both the girls, Ginger and Meg! Thanks to them buying dairy is a thing of the past for me... we have fresh milk everyday,, sweet and rich! I make fresh yogurt every week! And I make the BEST tasting Feta and Fromage Blanc cheese ever with their milk!
This is me walking my future Guardian Llama, Lila. Llamas bond with goats and sheep well... if attacked by predators or just chased by your irresponsible neighbors dogs Llamas will protect the herd by trampling the dog if it has to... So Llamas are very useful guards and really pretty
I don't know how much I will blog here anymore... I will probably start blogging on mine and the Bald Mans homestead blog. Which seems much more fitting now that we are living our dream!
