Life in the Hay Field... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full

 

Now you see it...






Now you don't...


Tractors don't move very fast on 3 wheels !






How sad is this ???






The Cowboy is using the tractor 

to handle the tire...

Tractor tires are full of calcium 

to weigh them down,

which keeps the tractor from being top heavy

and tipping over while on un-level ground.

The calcium makes them very heavy and 

almost impossible to move.




It took several hours to get this tire back in place...




While the guys work on the tractor

I am heading for home...


and....the Thread Shed



This is waiting for me at ...

Al Fresco Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

With the warming weather, we love eating on the veranda. Last weekend we decided to invite our neighbors up for a springtime meal to enjoy it with us. I set the table so the couples were a bit farther apart, just to make them more comfortable. It has been a while since I had some tablescaping fun, so I took the opportunity to use what I have in a new way.

This bowl was the inspiration for the color scheme and theme. It has red and gold as the main colors, with chickens on the sides. I made a delicious ...

Babies!!!! from Appalachian Quilts

Spring around a homestead is an exciting time.  As you watch the bulbs start to bloom and the seeds you started peek through the soil, hope and excitement fill your soul.  While trees start to bud out and grass starts to green, birds start building nests and breeding season brings even more life.  

Our first attempt at breeding the rabbits didn't "take".  Olaf had never been in that position before and really didn't know what he was doing.  Sadly we have no baby bunnies, but everything happens for a reason.  As we scrambled to make sure we had ...

So Cold! from Tink Squared

This is brutal weather for Arkansas, and the state really isn’t equipped to handle it. It was -4 degrees this morning when I went out to feed and water the chickens. Their water finally froze up, despite the heat lamp. But that was the first time it has since the cold and snowy weather hit.

It was so darn cold my nose stuck together before I got back inside! I think this might be the coldest weather I’ve ever been in.

We ended with a total of nine inches at our house, with another 9-14 predicted for tomorrow ...

Happenings here in the boon docks from In the Boondocks

 


Happenings Here In The Boon Docks


Our daughter Ashley goes up and picks them with an apple picker.



This time of year the pears get ripe!
It is a family affair if your not picking out of the tree you are picking them up off the ground.




Then of course we have to have rides for the little ones!


Our dog George and our littlest granddaughter Sarah!



Sarah does love pears, she ate almost as many as she picked up!




Our chicken coop is a fun place for the little ones who love to feed them. 

We have 8 chickens ...

So, How Are YOU Doing?? from Appalachian Quilts

A month ago none of us would have known that we were going to be where we are today.  If you had known, what would YOU have done differently (besides stock up on toilet paper...LOL)?  How are you doing right now?  My prayer is that you are all doing well.  I have watched the sometimes funny social media memes depicting everything from how parents are handling new-to-them homeschooling to concerns about grocery shortages.  Would you have lived your life the same way?

I never knew how to 100% explain the rationale why Hubs and I live the way we ...

Eggs-cuse Me! from Appalachian Quilts

Chickens slow down in the egg laying department during the winter.  This was the first year for us they completely stopped.  Some of our hens were getting older, so this fall we sent them to freezer camp.  (Actually, I canned them to keep them from being tough.)  We ran out of eggs.  Although we only had to purchase one dozen, I was none too happy about it.  Why are we feeding these freeloaders?


(Image taken from Google)

I have vowed that this won't happen again!  So, I decided once they started laying again I would dehydrate eggs.  I should ...

More Chickens....What??? from Appalachian Quilts

Our flock is now down-sized to 16.  Napoleon finally crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but he had a great life.  He was the only rooster who was spared through all the down-sizing.  We knew he was close to the end, but he was the best rooster we have ever had.  He was the one who practically knocked on the back door when the coyote came.  He was the one who would shuffle all the girls back in the coop when there was a hawk (or an airplane that looked like a hawk  LOL).  He did what a rooster was supposed to ...

Non-secret sewing! Something for me (or rather, the cat…) from Dimple Stitch

Hurrah! I’ve found something else I can show you which isn’t top secret!

Firstly, a little update on the chickens. The line-up has changed somewhat over recent months, we lost Priscilla (to a tumour) and Betty (fox) within a few weeks of another, which was really upsetting (softie over here shed a few tears…) and meant we were down to just two. It probably would have stayed that way – they were confined to their coop much more often due to fox-paranoia, and I didn’t want to cram more in and overcrowd them. However, a couple of weeks ...
