Well its that time, Peaches and Poppy are all grown up and headed off to stay with a boy goat for a couple weeks. The breeder will keep the goats for at least 18 days and then we will go pick them up and hope everyone got along! Things sure are different around here. The back yard has slowed down! With the garden at an end for the season and the goats off for a few weeks, we have a lot less work to do in the backyard than we have had to do in the past year! Even though we have less urgent matters to tend to in the backyard we sure are going to try and get all caught up and ready for winter and next spring! Mainly we have a lot of planning to do!
The cold weather is about to be here and we will be hunkering down and getting inside work done. I have a lot of sewing projects planned that I always get excited about! I also have several craft fairs planned for selling Teas and Tapestries. I sure do love this time of year!
- Homestead Roots
- My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.
