I decided to take 4 days of leave this week to spend some time working on various farm projects. While the list is never-ending, Anna and I are working hard on a few specific projects before spring gets here. I did manage to spend a few minutes with Betty and her kids outside in their pen. You can see all the pictures on the goat page, but here is one doeling getting a quick snack.
By the way, the doelings are for sale.
We spent the afternoon working on cutting down a large oak that was dying and clearing brush from the area that will become the rabbitry. Since the rabbitry has grown significantly, we have decided to move it away from the chickens and into the opposite side of the yard. Hopefully the weather will be nice enough tomorrow to allow me to finish clearing and move all the cages. I’ll add photos when it is finished.
Anna worked with Alex and Vicki to make their Valentine’s cards from scratch, and then made chocolate covered strawberries after they went to bed while I worked in the basement. I have finished building a new chick hatchery, with the exception of shelves. Once I get the shelves done tomorrow night, I’ll post pictures of the whole thing.
Some people take leave to go on vacation. I prefer to work on the farm.
