Season 3, Episode #41~ Stuffed with Stuffin’ and a Goooooooaaaaaallll!

The holiday week began with cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning.  A bit of cooking too, but nothing crazy- was just Blind Hog, Acorn and Baby Badger.  Turkey was cooked a week before, and the few sides were easy peasy. Usual chores continue.  Wire horse panels purchased and cut for the goose pens and barn doorContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #41~ Stuffed with Stuffin’ and a Goooooooaaaaaallll!”

Season 3, Episode #40~ Pre-Thanksgiving P(r)ep Talk

Prepping of many kinds at SteelMeadow Farm…  Cooking, baking, cleaning.  Getting all the little fiddly bits done.  Fruitcakes…  Cinnamon rolls… Turkey… Blind Hog’s firewood is no longer growing oyster mushrooms, those logs went into the woodstove.  Those logs were also very light, weight-wise, for their size. Guess the fungi have been taking care of that. Goats areContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #40~ Pre-Thanksgiving P(r)ep Talk”

Season 3, Episode #35~ Oh, Nuts!

Busy week on the farm- both goats barns cleaned out and dusted with lime and diatomaceous earth, dead trees cut and brought down from the upper 40 for firewood, walnuts a-plenty in the yard for picking up, goji berries in the dehydrator.  PHEW! Blind Hog and Acorn will take Sunday afternoon off at least, footballContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #35~ Oh, Nuts!”

Season 3, Episode #34~ Honey, I’m Hooooome!

Acorn left for a fun weekend trip to Houston, only to be diverted on her way home to Fort Myers. Talk about a mess down there!  Thankfully, the house in the Trust was pretty much unscathed and the closing of the sale, scheduled on the 29th, was NOT cancelled but only postponed a week.  BuyersContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #34~ Honey, I’m Hooooome!”

Season 3, Episode #12~ Ball Joints…

While Acorn was able to replace the tie rod ends, little did she and Blind Hog realize the ball joints all needed to be replaced as well.  That little issue was discovered at the shop when the front end alignment was started.  It is what it is… Have a farm?  You must have a workingContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #12~ Ball Joints…”

Season 3, Episode #9~ Borescope, Anyone?

Ho boy– did Blind Hog and Acorn ever have a domestic scare this week!  The dreaded “warping of hardwood floor boards!” Luckily, it was not “zebras” but a much simpler, less exotic cause of the issue.  A bit of cosmetic repair and all will be right with the world. Hissy Kitty was the first catContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #9~ Borescope, Anyone?”

Season 3, Episode #7~ Previews of Coming Attractions

Getting ready for more goat kids  and goose eggs! Fun on the farm! Blind Hog and Acorn missed the worst of the last winter storm that went through, almost 3″ of rain though.  They are not complaining.  Well, they are complaining about the county road and lack of maintenance…  But what else is new? AContinue reading “Season 3, Episode #7~ Previews of Coming Attractions”
