A Day in the Life of This Homesteader.

Yesterday I realized that you only get an edited version of life here. So I took my camera with me and photographed my day.

Morning starts at 620 am. After coffee and computer time.
your mama wears combat boots***greetings***rooster

goats have been on the feed bin***feed***starvin'

roosters***water tank***cow treat

Uma gets breakfast***That's not your's!***Back mama!

Brush down***horns hurt if you don't move fast enough***Time to trick mama

Hurry Edie!***gate locked to keep mama out***Edie's udder

Mama threatening us***Edie knocks the bucket down***Move goat!

Longing to be with the hens***toss some scratch to the girls***Morning check, no eggs

Mama gets back into the stanchion without a bribe***Let ya-ya out***always wipe your feet

feed geese and turkeys***Soda bread for breakfast***some reading time with medium size

mix soil***dry out spinach***beginnings of the upside down tomato planters

Salt must play now!***Lunch***Off to school

Morning is over.

afternoon check, still no eggs***Wave to the husband***5,000 sq ft of potato garden

Worked on those planters all afternoon.

Then after diner.

Evening Check, 2 eggs!***A 3rd egg!***So that's where you were hiding them

Finished the planters***MILK!***Medium Size gets attacked

Dry out noodles***Sew up some jeans***water the plants

write an article
