Weekly Recap/Observations – October 9, 2014

We’ve been busy but much of the work has been indoors.

Trace and Ryan finished the bar in the rec room! We also spent a weekend (plus some) crawling around in the attic space running a wire for the microwave, covering the pipes with insulation, installing our bedroom ceiling fan, and replacing the bathroom fans; all in preparation for the blown insulation to go in by the end of the month.

As far as the outside projects:

-We’ve been getting duck eggs! We’re not entirely sure why they’ve started laying in the chicken area. My theory is where Trace and Ryan put the goats has disrupted where they used to lay and as they do spend their nights with the chickens, so the straw bale seemed like as good a place as any.

-Unfortunately we may have waited too long on our tomatoes. I’m not sure we can rescue the green ones at this point – cool temperatures and extra moisture in the air seem to  have done a number on our plants.

-On the other hand we have a TON of peppers. And they’re still growing! We’re harvesting these and freezing some. I’m not sure what else we’ll do with them.

-We visited our pig last weekend – he’s doing well. We’re looking at harvesting mid-November.
