Never a dull moment here at Briarhill farm.
The garden has really taken off great, looks like one of the best ones in recent years. We have already eaten green beans, tomatoes, taters, radishes and onions.
The livestock population is exploding around here, my wife tried counting chickens the other day and got as far as 67 before she lost count, the incubator is full of chicken and turkey eggs and there are more chicken and guinea eggs waiting to go in.
The goats have pretty much destroyed their pen, so now we are looking at having to build a new one, we have 3 pregnant nannys and 2 bucks right now.
Yesterday was Mother's Day and my wife got a rabbit hutch with 3 does and 1 buck as a gift from our oldest son and his wife, so it looks like we are in the bunny business now.
I did an inspection of the beehives a little while ago, they all appeared healthy and calm for a change, I'm looking forward to a good honey crop this year.
As always there's something that needs done around here and I never can figure out where to start, I long for the day when I can stay here and take care of the homestead full time (at least part time), I really think that day is coming when our income can be derived from the labor we put in on our own place.
