It is wonderful. Hot, sweaty days that seem to be none stop running around. No electricity to most of the house. Wonderful gas appliances, rooms needing new paint, windows needing screens and minor repairs, not the major replacements we feared. The arrival of 160 chicks. 104 Buckeye And 56 Australorpe. Three Buckeyes died, 2 in transit and one shortly after they got here. The trophy room is full of the travelling turkey's who can now perch on the 4' side of their pen, and speeding balls of fluff in various shades of red (Buckeye) and black and cream (Australorpe). The Buckeyes are crazy busy, aggressive and determined, they are smaller than the Australorpe but rule the roost in every way.
Hay is cut, more to do. We are identifying weed problems to be dealt with....Globe Sedge.
Suppers have included our own tomatoes, basil, chives and peppers. Cooking is a delight on the propane stove. Fast and even with no qualms about the weight of the cast iron.
Anyway more to follow....limited power and my tablet is getting low!
God bless all of you from one happy couple in Kentucky!
