                              Life Is Busy

Wow have I been busy!! As you can see I haven't posted in a week. 

Just wanted to tell you all a little about what I've been up to. First the turkeys are growing sooo fast, and eating so much feed, If they continue at this rate they won't be long for the freezer.(grin)

The gardens are all in and doing well. We have growing- cucumbers, beans, dill, swiss chard, carrots, pumpkins and squash. The strawberries I planted are doing well but only a few blossoms, hopefully they'll winter well and produce a larger crop next year.

Also my grandparents are moving home from Florida, a lot to do to get ready. I will be busy with them helping with house work and meals. I can't wait it's been a year since I've seen them.

Tomorrow night I will be having a Keepers meeting here at my home. I know at least 16 people who are coming. I'm real excited Julie and I will be teaching everyone how to make bread, and goats milk soap. Can't wait!!

Last of all I've been working on my challenge, my husband is even up for it, but I've changed it from one year to just six months. So starting July1st until Christmas we will only be eating local food. We've been planning it all out. I have cheated a little I bought some extra things I needed for canning, but over all I think we're ready. So bring it on July 1st!!!!! Oh ya did I mention that's also my birthday(smile)

Well that's my week whats been happening on your homestead?

Pictures will be taken tomorrow night of our bread making so check back and see how we made out.

Hope everyone has a great evening.
