Around the Farmette .....................................

There's not much going on around the farmette except for the extreme summer heat. Buddy has found him a cool spot though , he spends the early morning hours on the pool deck , then he moves to the concrete pad as the day heats up.

Dh finally dug the waterline and put the spigot up near the chicken coop and goat pen. That is a big help with taking care of the animals during the heatwave we're having.

The echinacea looks beautiful ............

and the first sunflower has bloomed.

I moved my milking wagon ( LOL ) to the shed were the garlic is drying. It's cooler there and less flies to deal with while milking. Hope we get some rain soon , the garden isn't doing so well with the hot and dry weather we're having.

It's certainly beautiful with the flowers. I love my hydrant in the barnyard. If I get my new building (birthing pens) built, we are going to put one in it as well. I love your milking wagon. Are you doing anything fun with the milk?

Hi Teresa ~ Haven't did anything other than drinking and using the milk for cooking yet. But I have frozen some milk and plan to make soap in the Fall.
