Hi all, how is everything going?? and welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
It’s been a quiet week at home for me except for music lessons but it’s been a busy week for my husband work wise. He’s busy but that is such a blessing.
My husband has been wanting to build a chicken plucker but just hasn’t had the time yet. One of his friends went to a farm clearing sale and bought this for him. It’s not exactly the same as what he was going to build but it’ll do the job just fine. We have a few roosters that are destined to try it out shortly.
We’ve also been busy milking and separating and making butter. I’ve got a few in the freezer now and want to get a few more. Butter prices have risen so this is saving us buying it.
I’ve also got some cream on the bench fermenting and then I’ll make it into butter tomorrow. This was a suggestion from someone on Instagram and it sounds quite interesting.
I hadn’t done any canning this year yet because I’ve mainly been using the dehydrator but I managed to make some tomato and pork hock soup this week and canned it. It’ll be great for lunches this coming winter.
My husband got the tractor fixed and has finished filling the raised garden beds. He’s got to add manure and rotary hoe it and then we can start planting. I got some purple garlic in the mail this week so I’ll be planting that first and then some seedlings of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. There’ll be more to go but I’ve got to order some more seed next week.
Okay onto our link up…
Our top three this week were…
Thanks everyone for stopping by and linking up.
My husband has a busy few days this week and then I think he has time to do some work around here. So we’ll be busy planting veg and doing some tidying up around the garden.
The children are busy practicing the piano for the Eisteddfod and it’s only a few weeks now.
We also have a new grandbaby due in a weeks time so we’re all very excited about that and I’m looking forward to going and looking after the other children for a couple of days. Our no 2 daughter will come with me to help and the men will stay home.
So another quiet week for me, I still have some apples to bottle up and I’m hoping to try some pickled egg too. I’ve started the other quilt for the next granddaughters birthday at the end of the month so I need to sew that together and also finish a sock for her as well.
School has been going well so we’ll keep on with that too.
Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
