Farmette Happenings .......................................

Well , Goatee and Jazz seem to have hit it off well together. We'll probably have kids around the first week of Feb. Teresa , you hit the nail on the head with your comment last week (LOL).

My uncle brought my Mom and I some pears last week. I made 7 pints of pear preserves this weekend and will be canning the rest tomorrow.

I finally got around to turning these bell peppers and some of our tomatoes into 5 pints of mild salsa for Little Froggy on Friday. I have more tomatoes waiting to become spaghetti sauce one day this week.

The sunflowers have dried out , we're saving these for next years seed.

Saturday morning , Goatee was checking Little Froggy out. But after this cute scene he decided he needed to dominate Little Froggy , so he backed him into the fence and pinned him against it. He didn't hurt Little Froggy , but it scared him. I pushed Goatee away and told Little Froggy he needed to stay outside the fence , because he was being a bad goatee. I'll be keeping the Grands away from him from now on , they'll only be allowed to pet him through the fence.

This is were Ms. Crew is hanging out now , it's off to the side of the chicken coop , so she can keep an eye over the chickens and goats. Hopefully she'll help keep the wild critters away.

Guess the good thing is knowing about when the blessed event will occur! The pears certainly look good. I still just love Mrs. Crew!

Wow JoyceAnn...lots happening in your corner of the world...

Pears sound good about now...I haven't had one all year. And your salsa and spaghetti sauce always sounds divine!

As for Goatee and Little Froggy...I don't blame you for keeping the little guy outside of the fence now. Better safe than sorry.

Ms. Crew looks a little worn out Dear, lol...but she's still going strong eh?

Glad to see you save some sunflower seed for next year...I found some Queen Anne's Lace and some Goldenrod which I dried and scattered it today and tamped it down...hopefully it will take before cold weather sets in and especially with rain coming in our parts this week. This is a first for me trying wild seed, so we shall see.

Wishing for you many blessings this week and always!

Don't forget to head over to Janie's!!!! :)

Much Love Dear Girl!

Poor Little Froggy.
Glad he wasn't hurt.

Ms Crew seems to be gestering,
Out you Go! She looks like she
is pointing the way. lol!

I thought you've been very
busy and your family I am
sure appreciates all your
hard work.

Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a hoe and she laughs with a harvest.
