Last time I wrote on here we were knee-deep in freezing apple pies. I’m glad that is over for this year. We’ve been busy doing school and wintering the farm. We had some friends up from Missouri for a short visit, moved a farm shed on to Peter and Frenchy’s place, rebuilt a used outdoor wood stove, (thanks George Turbes) built a small outdoor wood stove for Frenchy, sold some lambs to pay feed bills, just to mention a few items of interest! Lamb prices are less than half of the price we received last year, but I think we were spoiled with such high prices last year. Like all good farmers, we are optimistic for higher prices soon:)
Maggie turned 15 and Frenchy 22! Holy smokes……where do the years go? Frenchy made two new recipes for both birthday cakes and it was fun to test new recipes. The next birthdays don’t arrive until January and we have 5 birthdays that month:) wow!
Fast forward…….it is now November and I never got around to posting this. I guess I’ll post this and work up the rest of what we’ve been up to on the honey farm. Jess and Luke are back from Ohio and it’s sure great to see them and my beautiful grand children.
Fall is my favorite time of year. While other mothers may consider themselves “soccer” mom’s, I call myself a “trapper” mom. I’ve been taking Caleb out on his trap line each morning very early, before school. It brings me back to the days past when I’d accompany Fred on his trap line.
And now it looks like another week went by so here is my post for now. Being busy means we are alive and well, so no news is good news. Next time I hope to post some deer hunting photos:) In the meantime, we are wrapping and grinding the deer and butchering a couple of hogs later today. How’s that for farm fun?
