Sore and tired, seems to be the catch phrase when people ask how I'm doing. Yesterday I spent an hour with a machete, hacking down Johnson Grass in the wanna be garden. Sure I could have just poured some chemicals on it and been done with it but that's just not how I roll. I've seen first hand what Monsanto's version of "safe" did to my Vietnam War veteran father. So as long as my muscles hold out, I'll hack down the weeds. And while I'm at it, I'll do everything else the hard way, too. I'm especially proud of my morning critter care routine. I don't know how I manage to make it so inefficient! For those who can't believe how time consuming critter care on a small property can be, here's the proof.
All that to feed and water 4 goats, 8 chickens, 3 guineas, and 12 rabbits. Oh my.
