Summer Happenings

 If it feels like you haven't seen a post from me in forever that's because I have been MIA.  Well, action online... not at the homestead.

Let's get caught up.

Pearl had a beautiful little bull calf two weeks ago.

 
Meet Timon (I thought it would go perfect with Pumba... Hakuna Matata)

Pearl and I have been settling into a nice milking routine.  I haven't yet separated her from the calf, so I'm not getting as much as I would like.  All in good time, why rush.

With all this rain the garden has exploded.

Pole beans and zucchini 

small, but producing green peppers

tomatoes and peas
I have been harvesting beans, cucumbers, peas, peppers, and a few tomatoes.  My onions and garlic were a total bust.  

The wood chips have kept all weeds down and have helped retain water.  This garden has been my most fruitful and least labor intensive garden so far.  I left for a week and came back to NO WEEDS!  We are planning to expand the garden this fall.

In other homestead news, we finally hayed our pastures!  Post coming soon.
