Feeling accomplished. Just taken the 2nd lot of 16 pint jars of French cut green beans (2 are actually yellow beans, a first for me) out of the pressure canner. Used that little bean cutting gadget :). Much easier than last years' laborious back of the potato peeler.
Herbie fixed the haybine when he arrived home from work today. The one spring holding one of the chains was missing which is why the rake part stopped working. Both got covered in grease, as we salvedged the spring from the 2nd haybine. I tried to project where the 1st spring could have ended up, but no lick. Will probably find it mangled in a piece of farm equipment, or Herbies idea, in a future bale of hay. So, after checking the weather report tomorrow morning, I may be spending the day on the tractor.
Gave Gabriel additional medicated feed for the barber pole worm today. Was interesting, giving the other cows corn, keeping them away from the meds. Had it in a separate bucket for him, but he was more keen to eat the corn, so I mixed the 2 together for him. Hopefully he got sufficient to clear him up. Also got some into Daisy May as she never got near the feed-trough last time. Was wondering if I could get a stab syringe into Gabriel. Cow hide is tough to push a needle into, and the Scottish Highlands' hides are thicker than the Jerseys'. I've never given a shot to one of the Scottish Highlands' before, but I have Midnights hide salted in the shed, and it's thick. I've bent a needle on Star previously. Haven't dosed the horses or alpacas yet either. Levi should take it fine, but the rest, not so sure.
Looks like a full moon tonight. Bright outside and rather pretty. Noticed that it's dark by 8:30pm already, Winter's on the way. Still need to cut and split wood for the Winter too. Oy vey ! So much still to do.
