Yum! I still need to butcher/sell/hide/giveaway a few more...Thank goodness for electric fences so the population is staying under control now. But, I think I still have 10 or a few more. I refuse to count. At least they're finding stuff in the pasture to munch on and sometimes don't even come up begging.

That's good, we still have nothing they can eat so they're grain and hay hounds. 10 isn't bad, what're you trying to get down to? I'm hoping DH gets down to 1 boar, 1 sow, and whatever is being raised for meat. Pigs are not cheap when you have 5+ months of snow, and we do not have enough land fenced in for them to not be destructive. Working on that but still... he is keeping his chicken numbers low so let's hope he does the same with pigs! Lol.

Howdy friends, wow my phone does not like the new format...

Anyway, lots of changes up here. Had the baby in September. He's 3 months old now, eek! DD2 will be 2 in January! Time flies!

SS wise, we got rid of the goats and chickens for now so we are down to just the sheep (got 2 more so there are 4 now) and pigs. I didn't have time to milk and DD2 has milk intolerance issues so it didnt make sense. I found a really lovely home for the last few goats so I'm happy with that.

We got a hydroponic garden a few weeks ago. We have starts just about ready to go into the big garden, then I'll have all kinds of gardening updates.

Ok going to go see what's new with everyone...
