Weekend An Taigh
I have one pork share left and a piglets on the way! I need to build their pen lickety split and clear the firewood stacking area for the Mews construction. I am trying not to think about costs right now of things like lumber and butchering 4 pigs at once (the cost of butchering the last two was $480!) I figure everything is one step at a time. If I thought about money I would have never even adopted Jazz and Annie, much less decided to buy a farm. Money figures itself out, at least at a pace that keeps things legally mine, if not comfortably mine. It's a small victory every time I mail in a mortgage payment or send a letter to Merlin's previous owner with a check and update.
So the news here is this: piglets and mews construction on the way! We had a short break in the heat the last day or so but back to days int he 90's and lots of outdoor work ahead. The garden is already watered (30 gallons this morning!) and the sheep, horses, and goats are in the shade. I plan on following their lead after some more work is done outside and I've been kissed by the Battenkill.
