Garden Goods

If I could get into the garden I could plant these babies! The rain just keeps coming. I suppose I can just put on my mud boots and go to planting! :P
I believe I will be planting my herbs in pots this year. We have been told that this year may be a mild summer soo better be safe than sorry! I am thrilled to have gotten a hold of these beauties!

Sunday Passage


Went on a day trip yesterday with Mountain Man. We don't get to do that very often.
So I will share a scripture today......

Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake orlet you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently say,
The Lord is my Helper [in time of need], I will not be afraid.
What will man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:5-6

Pasture Switcharoo!

Moved the horses, Lyfa and Curly down to the lower pasture. Grass is starting to come on so they can camp out down there for the season. Moved Ram Lamb and Goaty Goat to the smaller pasture where Lyfa was so they don't irritate the ewes. The ewes are in their pasture but with a bonus of going over to the big pasture on the other side of the creek on good days. Shut the gate today because we got a ton of rain and the creek is running. Do not want dead lambs in the creek!



Have a great day!

Mountain Man The Farrier

Copyright © 2018 M.E. Masterson All Photographs Copyright © 2018 M.E. Masterson

My husband, Mountain Man is a farrier by trade. We just spent the last couple days trimming donkeys, horses and shoeing a few too. Springtime brings the phone calls for the hoof clean up. It has been fun!
The countryside we get to see is just beautiful! So green and the blooms are just starting to come on....
Spring brings change and we welcome it! ;)

First Lambs on The Homestead

 Brother had just tripped over his brother....it was funny!
They are mouthing everything...sucking on grain pieces and nibbling on hay....so so cute!






We are still in waiting for three ewes to lamb... Maybe I will get birthday lambs???

Chicken Coop Update and More

We are getting closer to ordering chixs!! Yay!!
Yesterday, we worked on the coop some more...got the front covered....
Thinking today we will have the doors constructed and placed. What you don't see (forgot to take pic) is the hen boxes have been lined with straw and cedar chips. The ladder has been constructed and placed. Added a running board on the bottom boxes for the chickies to better choose their box! I know, they will all fight over one box even though they have a ton to pick from! Crazy chickies!
____________________________________________________________________________
Mountain Man got the garden tilled yesterday. Oh, the smell of spring time dirt! Love it!


Now it is ready for planting!
We were offered a deal that we could not turn down.....blackberry and raspberry plants for FREE!!
Thanks Mom and Dad!!
These will go down in the bottom of the garden.....I think they will be alright there!
Then I have to get the roses planted that Mountain Man got me for the kids spot in the pines. Will have to wrap them with chicken wire or something so the deer and squirrels don't eat them again!
And on the homestead we have disconnected DIRECTV. Too many commercials that we pay for! Ridiculous! So the old post that is in view of everything out my kitchen window will be transformed or removed today.
We were given an old school bell....might go right there! Instant hole, add a post! Waste not, want not!
Well as you can see I have a lot to get accomplished so off I go!

Have a great day!

Sunday Passage

39 [h]You search and keep on searching and examining the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and yet it is those[very Scriptures] that testify about Me; 40 and still you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. 41 I do not receive glory andapproval from men; 42 but I know you and recognize that you do not have the love of God in yourselves. 43 I have come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter. 44 How can you believe [in Me], when you [seek and] receive glory and approval from one another, and yet you do not seek the glory and approval which comes from the one and only God? 45 Do not think that I [am the One who] will accuse you before the Father. There[already] is one who accuses you: Moses, [the very one] in whom you have placed your hope [for salvation]. 46 For if you believed and relied on[the Scriptures written by] Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me [personally]. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
John 5: 39-47

Homestead Updates 1

Our three cows went to the sale barn today for tomorrow's sale.
Goaty goat was not sure this was alright with him but he is adjusting. We moved the goat and ram lamb into the small pasture. The horses were moved into the large pasture.

We continue to chip away at the hen hut. He added a door today and placed the nesting boxes.



It will be done soon! ;)
