Homestead Update

7 Jun

Well, as you might imagine, working 80 hours last week at my job not much was accomplished around here. Things are starting to look up with the crops, so maybe I can settle into a 60 hour a week groove now. That would leave a little time to work around the homestead. We did manage to get the yard mowed but that is pretty much all we were able to accomplish outside. Sweet Thing spent a lot of time straightening up and cleaning inside the house this week.

Some of the corn is starting to look pretty good.

The cotton is finally looking like it might survive the Spring weather and actually produce a crop.

I found 6 marbles this week.

I also found the base to an old-timey Iron that you heated on top of the woodstove. This thing is heavy, that’s why Granny had such big arms. She had to be strong to do all the everyday chores she did! Keep prepping everyone!

    We got a bit of rain here lately but overall still coming in under normal amounts. Hasn’t hurt us so far but I am still crossing my fingers for more rain up here.

      It has rained somewhere in my work area everyday for the last 3 weeks. I just go in another direction and keep working.
