Wow, we are already nearing the end of 2011. Bring on the new year! I have had a few minutes here and there to reflect over the past year...think of what we have done...what works for us, and what didn't. We have been blessed several time over the last year....my sister gave us a 1948 Ford 8 N tractor.
This has already been put to work pulling trees from the woods, a hay ride for our Fall Festival, and moving an electric pole that was given to us from the power company.
We were also given a little trailer. We have to get the title, and tag it, but it was free, and it is very sturdy!
All of our animals were productive, plenty eggs, milk and meat for us for the winter. The Garden was not overly productive, but we were able to get enough to mostly get us through.
We were also blessed with the newest little member of our farm.... Meet FREEDOM!
So, Freedom is home..and depending on his health over the winter, I will be working with him to pull a cart next spring.
Bring on the new year...I am looking forward already to getting into the gardens, planting fruit trees, and of course, our breeding pigs come spring!
