So this is October, and what have we done? Another month over, and a new one just begun.
(sorry. I loathe that “Christmas” song so very, very much. I have no idea what possessed me to reference it here)
Anyway, our first September here on the farm is behind us, we sat down and assessed what we accomplished, what still needs to be done, what went well, and what didn’t. So settle in to your commute/grab a load of laundry to fold, and come hang out with us for the next 30 minutes to see what homesteady things we got done in September.
We launched our podcast! You can find all of them here.
Tomatoes in the freezer. This picture doesn’t convey the overwhelming amount of tomatoes in there, but they’re there. And they’re patiently waiting for the first annual Great Sauce Making Day here at Ghost Fawn. Details sure to follow on the farm’s website.
Can we talk about food mills for a moment? I just bought this one off Amazon, but I would love love love to hear your recommendations.
We realized that we had not one, but two Welsummer roosters. Whoops. Oh well. Once we get rid of the hamburg roo, the two Welsummers should be ok together. With a flock of 28 hens, two roosters can co-exist peacefully.
Which brings us to the problem of Sherlock Homes. What do we do with him? Look at him- he’s beautiful! but so scrawny!
Ken wants to eat him. I say there’s not enough meat there. Send us your ideas, be they recipes or leads on nice places to rehome our Silver Spangled Hamburg rooster.
The fly bag. Oh, the fly bag. If you at all have a fly problem (no judgements here, friend, this is a safe place), then check out the fly bag.
Next week we’ll be talking turkey and announce the winners to the giveaway, but if you can’t wait that long for more farm fresh content, you can follow us here:
