Storm in Sympathy with Texas

Last night we had a such a violent storm, I felt it was in sympathy with Texas. The lightning, especially in my second story bedroom, was blinding and constant. Between the thunder and lightning Bailey wouldn’t even stay upstairs with me. The power went out of course. It turned out to be from one of […]

Ranchers Journal – Thursday August 17, 2017

Got started late and stayed out longer than I expected to. So this will be brief – or at least that’s the plan. Once I get to ‘talking,’ I find I have lots to say! One of the things I did this morning was to make an extra trip to check minerals. The goats need […]

Watering the Chickens

Chickens I went out to feed the chickens first this morning. They had enough feed still, but all the water canisters were ready to be filled. Since I’d been seeing some runny poops (we’re very ‘poop-centric’ here), I decided to add some apple cider vinegar to each. Just a quarter cup or so. Vinegar is […]

Morning Chores

Chick Brooders Before and After

It’s good to know how to improvise what’s needed. Remember the makeshift chick brooder we’ve been using for the guinea chicks? A free-standing tub in a back porch, a heat lamp and thermometer. Messy, smelly and inconsistent temperatures, but it worked well enough for the guineas. Well, now that we know we can, we decided […]

The Life of a Mayhaw Pond

September 12, 2016 For those of you who were following the Berry Barometer leading up to our Mayhaw Berry Harvest Festival last May, I thought an update would be in order. Especially since our natural Mayhaw Berry tree stand goes through such radical changes through the year. Here’s a recent video. The whole seasonal series […]
