These last two weeks have been a bit crazy. One of our goats gave birth (the first time I've helped with a kidding) so by next weekend we should be able to provide at least some of our own dairy. Our other doe is due April 2nd so that will make it a lot easier for us in the milk department.
A big issue we're having right now is water. The overabundance of it. We're about a month behind on planting, which I'm concerned about for our last three months of not buying any food. It's also been keeping us busy trying to keep our animals dry. We currently have 19 chicks and 2 baby goats and the barn flooded this weekend. This past Friday we were so busy with trying to keep everyone dry we never got around to eating dinner.
Earlier on Friday we went and picked up the whole pig we bought and had butchered. It was butchered and nicely wrapped. We promptly unwrapped it so we could vacuum seal it. We had asked for the skin, liver, heart, lungs and kidneys. Unfortunately we only got one kidney and the head. So no chicharrones. :( But I can make head cheese.
The craziness should be continuing as we approach the 6 month mark!
