It has been a long time since I have blogged. It is hard to believe how much has happened. It didn’t really feel like things were happening at the time or I didn’t have anytime to blog about them. I was very involved in a local farmers market last summer which I hope to continue this summer. The egg business and the canned goods and soap did very well. I am hoping to add a few items from the garden in the mix as well. All of the goats are bred again this year except (of course) Yoo Hoo. My first babies are due in as early as 4 weeks.
We are slowly but surely making improvements to the farm. It was practically perfect when we moved here but things wear out. Today we had a new walkway and stairs put in.The bricks on the walkway have always been uneven so we replaced them with concrete. We also had the stairs removed and went with concrete. We will replace the new hand rails very soon.
We also took this opportunity to improve the drainage in the barn yard. Everytime it rained I had to go out to the barn to re-dig a trench so that the runoff did not go through the barn. So now I have my own drainage ditch. I hope it was worth it, but we figured if we had a truck of concrete coming out any way….why not?!
Here is the finished view of the front steps.
