Follow-Up Friday

This week:

-- We've had several rain storms this week, which means very high humidity. It's a sauna out there! But the summer rains mean some farmers will have a second cutting of hay. I've made arrangements to buy the rest of the round bales we'll need for winter.

-- The goats are bred, and the buck smells to high heaven. It's spider season, late summer and fall. I haven't walked into any webs yet but I've seen several big garden spiders.

-- I picked the first green peppers today. The tomatoes are flowering profusely but there are still no fruits on the vines. I'm going to try hand-pollinating.

-- Our granddaughter has gone back home. The house is quiet once again and I miss her a lot. Our oldest dog misses her too, and at least once a day he goes down the hallway to the bedroom door, hoping that she is on the other side of it. Life has been quiet this week.

  1. Awww, so sad that your oldest dog misses your granddaughter too! I bet it is a lot quieter without her around :(

  2. How'd you manage to get the goats bred already! Lucky. Mine don't even seem to be thinking about it yet.

  3. Rut is early this year. I planned on breeding season beginning in mid-to-late August: surprise!

  4. We all miss her, Tammy. You're right, it's sure quiet now. :(
