Monday night June 25, 2012
Spent the morning cleaning out pens. Yucky but just part of having animals and with 100 plus temperatures predicted for the end of the week we wanted everything to have clean pens and bedding and also to help keep down flies.
Found one of the Buff Orphington hens broody today so set 7 chicken eggs under her. Hopefully we will have a nice little clutch of buff chicks next month.
Gypsy is improving with her pneumonia treatment everyday and is breathing so much easier.
It was a day of blanching and processing vegetables. Cabbage, broccoli, beets, onions and peas.
Ever thankful for the bounty of our harvest.
