This week Mr. Dragon and I made, and canned, some blackberry jelly, and apple butter. It was awesome!

Our Crazy Goats

May 26, 2017

We were watching funny goat videos on Youtube, and decided that since our goats make funny noises, we should put one up too. Our goats had a different idea.


Scourge of the Lawn Mowers Revisited

May 22, 2017

I mowed the back and one side of the yard today, and for once it was a semi-pleasant experience. Due to the ridiculously unreliable nature of our other lawn equipment, we purchased an electric mower (battery operated). It was great, and will be even better when we get a second battery, so that while one is charging, we can mow. I only had to pull out the gas push mower at the very end. No stalling, no fumes, no pulling until my shoulder was shot, no spark plugs popping off and I get to keep my first born.
SO, if you’re like us, and you can’t get the lawn mowed without rubbing a few bones together and slapping someone with a dead chicken, do yourself a favor and buy an electric mower.


I Love Farm Living

One of the best things about living on a farm is eating fresh food. Today, while on a walk, we picked a few blackberries. Enough to make a pie!

Goat babies update

May 16, 2017

The goat babies are doing just fine.  We have a male, named Gizmo (stripe on face), and a female called Bella (white face). They’re spunky little things. They’ve already begun to get into a little mischief and needed rescued by Mr. Dragon.

This is Gizmo.  Isn’t he cute?
