Got the zero-turn out yesterday and mowed the lawn. It was long overdue. Planned on doing it last Friday, but never got there. Going down the driveway, met Jason on his much smaller zero-turn. He said he's still envious of our monster mower. Further down, ran into Doug mowing their lawn. 'Twas the day for mowing :)
Did part of the path through the woods, got stuck, fetched the tractor and pulled it out, finished mowing in the dark. Hmm, wonder why they don't put lights on mowers ?
This morning while doing the morning chores, saw the Toulouse geese with the 4 goslings, and then one much smaller one came around the corner, struggling to keep up. OK, they've been around to the White Chinese gooses' nest and stolen one of her hatchlings ! Waded into the thick of them, much hissing, wing flapping and mock attacks, scooped it up and took it back to its' mama. Then had to rescue 3 chicks that had fallen through the fencing that protects the fern and hostas. Saw the other 7 chicks with their 2 mums' fussing around them, so 11 chicks.
I threw the rest of the eggs against the wall at the lower barn as they've been abandoned and were cold. I tried putting another hen on them yesterday, but she was back on the chair this morning. There were some fully developed chicks, but cold.
Am getting lots of milk. Around 9-gallons a day. Making cheese, lots and lots of cheese.
The processing place had just called, the lamb is ready for pick-up. Yippee, been a long time since we've had lamb in the freezer. Can't wait for lunch tomorrow :). Also now have lamb to trade for apricots from Betsy.
Well, need to go back to the cheese, butter and yoghurt.
