Friday Follow-Up

Friday Follow-Up at Oak Hill Homestead

This week:

It rained and it rained and it rained. Then the "annual turtle migration" began. Every spring turtles cross the roads and we all attempt to drive around them. I've been known to rescue a turtle or two, moving it safely to the side of the road, but only on dirt roads and I'm always careful of traffic. Out here the question is "why did the turtle cross the road?" Some of those turtles are probably older than the roads are.

Young cows in the road

I was nearly late to an appointment because there were cows in the road.

Muscovy duck eggs in the incubator

We've had two power outages since I put the duck eggs in the incubator, both lasting at least two hours. All the eggs survived the first one, but only three are still developing after the second outage. I'm sad about the losses, but thankful that three eggs are still viable. Interestingly, they are the three eggs in the middle compartment; I guess they were in the warmest spot in the incubator.

I heard a whippoorwill call last night for the first time this year. It was a beautiful night with the almost-full moon that bathed the yard in white light.

This week post was:

How I store our excess of spring goat milk.
