Days have been flying by here at the Neophyte Homestead. My mornings have been spent attempting to finish getting the garden in, which I should be done with today. But then again, I have some massive mulching to start on.
I have been canning, and Candying, and preserving things as of late. I know, I owe you a couple recipes, and will get on that as soon as I have a bit of time to breath.
The boys have taken up a new sport
The long bow. Husband and I spent Monday driving around town attempting to find long bows. Even ended up at major sporting stores, they could order them, but none in stock. A pawn shop hooked us up with a small archery store. They only had two bows left. Not much demand for them. Everyone is into the compound bow. We decided to go with a the lesser expense of a fiberglass bow, and wait on the wood ones, or making them, until we know that the boys want to do this. So far, the first thing the ask to do is practice. Blisters have started to develope under the leather of their gloves. They seem to be loving it.
Other than the garden, and livestock tendering, we have had to deal with several motorcycles.
Hope all is well with you guys.
I'll be back soon.
