never a dull moment
July 21, 2021
The sunset the other night was just awesome. I looked up from checking on the pigs that we had moved that day to their new paddock area and this is what I saw. It was really nice to see after having such a difficult time moving the pigs from their old paddock to their new one. I've come to the conclusion that pigs are not up for change and that they are creatures of habit. I should have video taped the whole process but I didn't.
We also harvested our garlic and so far growing garlic has been going good (LOL). It seems like it's been so long since we planted the garlic bulbs, in reality it's only been just over 8 months. I would like to double our garlic harvest for next year. Our onions are not quite yet ready to harvest, we planted them later than we usually do.
Visiting with our Amish friends last week they gave me some eggplant. I have never ever had eggplant before and thought I would try some when they offered it to me. I have to say that I am not a fan of eggplant. It could have been the way I cooked it, and I will say it won't be something I would be planting in the future, we both actually didn't care for it.
We have been dealing with hornets when we sit out on our back deck, to the point that I'm getting stung when I hang my clothes out on the line. Well we found the source for all those hornets, I will tell you this was HUGE that we had to take it down for our safety. Looking at it though it really is a beautiful piece of work done by the hornets.
Well our little Noki is down to 8 lives now. We are not sure how it happened but she somehow got hurt to the point that we thought she wasn't going to make it. Noki had crawled up into our ATV and Jim's not sure what happened, his first thought was that he had run over her with the ATV but I don't think so, she hurt her right back leg and could hardly walk for a few days. I think that she had gotten thrown off of the vehicle and somehow her leg got twisted and sprained. Here she is a few days ago and today she is starting to jump and play with Smoky our other barn kitten. Poor little Smoky couldn't figure out why her barn mate wasn't up for playing anymore, but she's back and I am glad.
There is never a dull moment here on our homestead and I like it that way.
