Your daily dose of manure

I’ve been trying to create a post for two days now but blogger has been acting up on me.

I started the west pasture the other day and have made good progress so far. The trees and grass have grown up through the fenceline so I’ve got to mow and nice working strip around the five acre fenceline, use the trimmer to get under the fence and through to the other side, then go back and begin removing trees. Ed’s going to take me out this afternoon and show me the easiest way to get the trees down. Naturally, all the ones growing needing removed are hedge – a solid thorn thicket and tough wood to cut. Oh well, I look at this as a workout and saving the cost of a gym membership. :) At least I’m comfortable starting and operating the chainsaw. Now I just have to learn how to cut the tree down. All the limbs will be tossed in the goat pen and they’ll have a nice treat. I learned that last week when I cut the fence out of the treeline next to the new garden space. They loved the limbs!

Moo did not cooperate this week at the vet and didn’t come in to heat/season (whatever it is for a cow) this week so he kept her for another week. Is it strange that I miss my cow? I’m just used to seeing her in the front pasture and hearing her moo out a welcome to me whenever I come in the drive. It’s odd not having her here.

I made the best dinner yesterday and can’t believe how easy it was. I took a smoked sausage, peeled potatoes, onions, and green beans, tossed them in the crockpot and cooked them all day. It was absolutely delicious! We had a fresh salad and homemade bread with it. :)

Sending thanks to Peggy at Hidden Haven Homestead and her friends. I’m humbled and thankful beyond words. The kindess of people amazes me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
