I am trying to focus on the positive things here. First is that our woefully neglected garden is producing an abundance of food. This is an example of one days harvest- there’s ears of corn on the bottom of the bag, green and purple beans in the next layer and tomatoes on top.
Here’s 5 tons of hay going into our new hay loft.
And here’s my new breeding buck Dean.
Well, it’s better than a well-tended garden that didn’t produce much this year…like mine. 🙂 That frost we got at the beginning of August just ruined everything, catching the garden ready to start producing at it’s peak. Now it just look peak-ed.
And your new buck is a doll!
Don’t worry about sharing the down times with us ~ it’s part of life with animals! But, you’re right. It’s always good to remember to count your blessings and you have some wonderful ones…
Thanks Kathy, Mim and Nancy,
You are all right. A frost in August?!? Wow- I am glad we’ve never had that. And I do like my new buck although he is MUCH stinkier than the others here. And counting blessing is always good to keep things in perspective. I will keep trying.
