-- I made another quart of apple juice for the freezer.
-- Although I meant to begin breeding the goats three weeks ago, it was just so overwhelming to move them all around, and so I procrastinated. On Monday my loaned-out buck came back home, so it was time to do it. I divided the herd, separated the doelings and told them they are now weaned, and moved the bucks in with the does.
-- Thorn, the last of this year's bucklings, went to a new home.
-- Chuck has been out of the pasture twice this week, once in the hayfield and the second time in the woods. Thank goodness he knows where his grain will be at feeding time, and comes to the gate for me to let him back in.
-- I've loved seeing the monarch butterflies this week; evidently a new "cycle" of them has "hatched". Their pristine wings are so pretty, and they glide on the breezes so gracefully. I like to think that some of them are descendents of our butterflies Pam and Penelope.
