Yall know, Winter does not necessarily mean time off for Farmers and Ranchers across the country. Although, We do take advantage of the longer hours of dark to catch up on the Ranch House chores inside. Its a great time for reading, sewing and crafts. And We love baking in the cooler months as well.
We also have added chores like adding warmers for the water, salt licks, and extra bedding for the animals against the cold. This time of year Our rabbits breed for babies in time for Easter. We have eggs in the incubator hoping for a good hatch for Our chicken coop so They will have eggs by this fall. The pen for Our new piglet still has a few things left to do on it before she comes to the Ranch at the end of this month.
We are planning a small vegetable garden. And I have the flower beds in the courtyard I want to add some more color to. I have been dreaming of a little greenhouse to start some seeds for the gardens. And We still have to work on the small pond. Always something to do.
And then there are always repairs and maintenance on the Ranch House and Buildings. It takes some planning. Everyday I look around at what We need to do next and then at what We have to do to get it accomplished. My Momma always told Me anything worth having is worth working for. But Yall know We wouldn’t be anywhere else. Its a Labor of Love <3. And We are very fortunate to get to share it with all of Yall.
Thanks to All of Yall who read Our Blog, leave Us comments, drop Us emails and those that come out to the Ranch for Our Front Porch Friend’s Events. Its such a treat to part of Your lives and have Yall be part of Ours. Hope Yall have a great weekend!
Tell the Family We said Hey and Yall come back and visit with Us again this Tuesday. ~Love from the Ranch~
