but all I can smell is burnt rubber, as the soles of our shoes (boots) melt from the constant running around.
Farmer Jon here and boy have we been busy. Which has become our new normal since we moved out here but lately we've been even busier than usual. Here are a few examples:
Our dark cornish chicks are a few weeks old and growing a little every day
Our Pekin ducklings arrived on Saturday and some of them are already HUGE!
The Khaki Campbell ducklings are doing well and can be moved to their permanent home soon.
The broiler chicks are doing really well. We were expecting more issues since they are a commercial breed but they have actually done really well so far.
And of course, we're still moving the sheep around.
And the bulls...
And the cows and calves...
And don't forget ol' 14. She's still hanging in there.
I've had two equipment failures while trying to lift her up twice a day but I hope she will make some good progress this weekend.
Jamie's been working hard on the garden.
Here are her strawberries!
Did I mention the turbine was hit by lightning AGAIN! My renewable energy dealer/repairman thought I was joking. He said that has never happened. Luckily, I know how to take it down now. So I lowered it last night but I still have to wait for the part, now that the wind is blowing like crazy today...
See that little white thing. That's what needs replaced...
