Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- We've had so much rain you can almost watch the grass grow. Each day I pull several bushels of weeds for the pigs. The goats are picky about what they eat, but the pigs sure aren't. I guess that's the basis for the saying "you eat like a pig".

Speaking of the pigs, we goofed a bit in the placement of their pen. It's in a low spot, and with all the rain we've had their pen is a muddy mess. Who knew we'd have so much rain? It looks like we'll break the record for the wettest May ever, and we might personally win the prize for the muddiest pigs ever.

-- I'd like to thank you all for entering my anniversary giveaways last week. The winners are:
Love tea from Mountain Rose Herbs - Autumn P.
Prairie Pin Pouch #1 - Iris C.
Prairie Pin Pouch #2 - Mary B.
Kitchen Herb Garden from Mary's Heirloom Seeds - Angela H.

-- What I found: Small Batch Fruit Preserving from The Survival Mom. With fruit season fast approaching, this is a good read.

-- Have a blessed week!
