I started this blog with the intention of treating it like a farm diary. Since then my 17yo begged for a way to make extra money so I let her take up the feeding/watering chores. It literally takes only about 30 minutes if you do the chores with a purpose.
The teen is away this week she’s volunteering as a camp counselor for the 6th graders Outdoor School. Sunday the tween and I drove her an hour into the mountains for camp.
Monday morning I let my insomnia do it’s thing. I rarely sleep past 3:30 or for more than 5hrs. Not by choice.
Last night I actually got 7hrs of sleep but I was ready to do chores 15 minutes before sunrise.
I’ve always been one to get chores done at daybreak. It’s such a peaceful time of the morning being awake before the chickens are off their rafters.
Oh and the tween is an awesome teammate. She mostly just walks along but she does it enthusiastically without complaint. Pretty cool for an 11yo.
Now we’re talking about keeping the farm chores and find a new way for the teen to make money. 😁
On the downside the newly installed bees disappeared. That was sad and $160 tossed into the wind but maybe it was a mistake getting bees that weren’t in an established 5 frame nuc. I thought I would save money just getting 3lbs of bees. I knew better. It’s never worked for me in the past.
I made the tween biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Of course I forgot to take a picture. I’ll probably make her more tomorrow so I’ll give you a recipe and picture then. Promise! I had some V8. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person.
It’s almost 7:30. I better get back to it. I need to build a couple of rabbit yards. The 5 baby buns are almost as big as the adults.
I need to work on the meat shed too. My garden is depending on it.
Have a great day!
