Friday Farm Fotos: Planning Ahead
Ever heard of a... "sheepish grin"?
Even though it is still very much summertime here in Tennessee, it's never too early to start making plans for the upcoming winter because it will be here before we know it.
You may remember a few months ago I mentioned that Hubby had decided sell all his hay equipment...
(this was after the neurosurgeon told him he needed to go easy on his back from now on..)
and while I'm all for not having to be in a hay field in 100 degree weather, it does pose the problem of having to find enough good hay from another source to last all winter.
We finally found some this week, and I have to admit that after all the hard work that went into putting up our own hay last year; the cutting, fluffing, baling, and transporting all that equipment-
it was mighty nice to not have to have to worry about anything other than stacking it.....
Now that we are well stocked with quality hay, that's one less thing we have to worry about this winter.
Hubby also worked on getting our little garden ready
so we could plant some kale and spinach for fall.....
And we need to move this stack of seasoned firewood to the front porch
and cut some more to dry for next winter.....
The beehive is still a flurry of activity but soon we will have to help them
get prepared for winter as well....
The list goes on and on!
But there is always time to snuggle up a baby fuzzy bottom...
This was one of several chicks that hatched from some very well-hidden Silkie eggs.
(And not seen in this picture is one very smug Silkie hen, too.)
Happy Friday, everyone!
