Last Week’s Egg Letter 10/10/19

October 16, 2019

It is Thursday afternoon. I have finished my farm work and “Work” work…oh how I love my “Work” work!
Anyway, I thought I would holler at y’all now because I have a number of appointments and interviews tomorrow… I love my life! I love my farm! I love my not-farm business!

Eggs are for Sale! Who needs eggs to be delivered on Sunday at church?

Walter & Sweetie sneaked some feed from inside the pasture.

FARM NEWS
The rain last weekend, the overcast days of late, the lower temperatures – praise the Lord God Almighty! He has given us relief! He alone made all things and He alone has rained His mercy upon us! (We almost didn’t come to church last Sunday, so enthralled with the falling rain, the smell, the sound…)

The sort-of tarp covering DH and I hung for the goats on Saturday was full of water and half-fallen-down when I went to the pasture this morning. The goats looked no worse for wear. Fat, sassy, some wanting to be petted… They all love feed, though they no longer receive it regularly.
DH is researching the best shelters (smallish) that we can put into the central pasture when we – take a deep breath – move the younger nannies to the front pasture again. Time for my cardio again! Pam? Pam? Where are you, my goat-herding friend?

Does & their kids.


Heidi, Dot, GG, Jumper, Barb and Joy – too cool for school.

The hens are great! They are being fed Scratch again now that the temp has dropped. While filling my Scratch bucket, one of the young pullets flew up to stand on my wrist. Silly bird. She stayed there while I walked out of the coop until I dropped my arm and scattered Scratch for everyone!

The big dogs were bathed last weekend ahead of the cold front. They immediately rolled in the grass and Dixon, bad dog, scratched up mulch to roll in! Not longer White Great Pyrenees. They are filthy, cocklebur-encrusted, spoiled rotten farm dogs!


Walter has the most beautiful coat! Looking forward to seeing his offspring!

Let me know if you want farm fresh eggs!

Egg Custmore Letter 6/26/2020

June 27, 2020

A late Friday afternoon Hello!

Eggs are available – how many dozens do you need?

FARM NEWS!

DH & I returned from exercise this morning & I made the mistake of stopping to eat breakfast before beginning chores (I never do this!).
When I headed outside the humidity was near unbearable, but the dogs jumped into the truck to help me feed the goats. I let the hens out of the coop first, then drove to the front pasture.
The goats were thrilled at being fed 2 days in a row! Four kids were out of the fence, nibbling weeds & brambles on our neighbors property; 2 slipped under the fence to get to the feeding pen, 2 ran toward the pen on the other side of the fence. Sorry guys, can’t feed you there.

We still have a passel of kids in the pasture.

All the goats are healthy, though not as fat as usual. The high grass makes it difficult for them to get around to graze, including Walter. You see, fainting goats like to be able to see if predators are nearby & with no tractor to keep the pastures neat, the grass & weeds are crazy tall.

Our tractor is supposed to be at the “store” next Thursday, however (there is almost always a however), the bush-hog must be installed & the “box” for grading the driveway must be checked, then DH & I must be trained to drive it… So, hopefully the 2nd week of July we will once again have a tractor on this wonderful piece of property. Please, Lord, let it be ready for us by then!

When I lock the hens in this evening there is one thing I am concerned about – is “broody” hen brooding again! She moved from nesting box to nesting box when I was servicing the hens this morning. All the nesting boxes stayed full with one silly hen trying to go two-sies to break in line for laying! If broody is still on the nest, back to the cage with food & water again for her for the next 3 days. Silly bird.

Heidi with 2 of her triplets. The little female in the back is GORGEOUS!

Barn Swallows are trying to build their mud nest on our front porch eave. Such beautiful birds & friendly, but they make a muddy mess. Also, we are having the exterior painted in about 2 weeks – so sorry, but find another nesting place, please. Try the barn or the chicken coop!

To finish my story, I got overheated this morning. Exercise. Breakfast. Dogs. Chickens. Goats. Chickens, again. Berry bramble. Garden. Dying! Dehydrated, overheated, hard to walk, put the eggs away, brought the veggies inside, Isla stayed outside with the big dogs…I make it to the shower & stand under the cold water until DH comes in to ask if Isla is in or out. “You should have jumped into the pool.” Thanks, Dear.
Earlier this afternoon I bought feed at the co-op & steaks at our local butcher. It looked like rain was coming so I unloaded the feed into the garage. 300 lbs in 50 lb bags. Guess what? Got overheated again. Duh! Currently sitting quietly in the Keeping Room until time to lock the hens in for the night.

A lovely combination: sweat and sunscreen! The Crazy Goat Lady with a kid.

Tomorrow will be busy – garden work starting with mowing between the raised beds, then weeding the perimeter fence, covering the sweet potatoes that have finally shown some life with fresh soil, searching for ripe English Pea pods, harvesting the last 2 cabbages to make sauerkraut & slaw, laying down cardboard over the grass & covering that with mulch from our downed trees. Yes, our tree guy & his crew mulched what they could & removed the rest of the trees that went down back..when was that storm? Got to hit it early…as soon as it is light enough to see.

Hope you’ve had a great week.
Let me know if you need farm fresh eggs!

Oh, I almost forgot, there was a snake skin in the chicken run this morning. Oh good.

Egg Customer Letter 6/19/2020

June 24, 2020

Well, hello to you, too, Heidi!

Happy Friday afternoon!
Who needs farm fresh eggs this week? Let me know!

FARM NEWS
We had a nice trip to Pickwick Lake last weekend for a reunion…sort of… with DH’s high school friends, even though it was his sister’s class!
Isla survived being left with her big human brothers, but barely.

One Rhode Island Red hen has been acting broody so she is completing her last day in a cage with food & water. It takes 3 days to break the cycle but I have no idea why. She will be glad to get outside for some scratching Saturday morning.
The other hens are fine & continue to lay. That will change once Summer heat arrives & stays, but currently, plenty of eggs.

The goats have been playing in the road! Brushing against the gate we rarely use, they pushed the old chicken wire off & took advantage of the freedom to eat alongside Mingo Branch Road. We found out Wednesday when our lawn guy, who mows the 5 acres on top of the hill, texted as he was leaving that nannies & kids were loose. By the time I got down there, they were all back inside the fence so I fed them to get them away from the edge of the property. Thursday, I replaced the old chicken wire by “sewing” it to the gate with heavy gauge wire. To secure the lower part of the gate I had to sit on the ground. Jolly Beau decided she is a lap goat! Goats are naturally curious, so they all arrived including the kids to investigate my presence. Jolly was in my lap. Sweetie was eating my hat. Sissie chewed on my shirt. Silly goats!

Thank you for posing, Dot’s little buckling!

We are buying a John Deere Tractor but it will not arrive until July 2nd! Walter better eat fast since the weeds & grass grow faster in his pasture due to the afternoon shade!

Harvesting English peas, yellow squash & cabbage from the garden. Yum!

Hope to see you at church Sunday!
Let me know if you want eggs!

Egg Customer Letter 6/5/2020

June 6, 2020

Good afternoon on this sunny, humid Friday!
Who needs eggs? I have a special surprise for folks who buy eggs this week…You will be very happy…

For newbies receiving this email, the eggs are $5 a dozen. The hens free-range within the confines of a portable electric fence which I relocate at least once a week. They are not quite as spoiled as my Tennessee Fainting Goats, but it’s close! I call, “Hennie-penny! Hennie-penny!” & they come running expecting a treat, which they usually receive.

FARM NEWS
Praise the Lord, our tree removal guy is here today! There should be plenty of firewood seasoning ahead of late Autumn’s cooler weather. We can get the front gate repaired & the solar panel & opener replaced! Hurrah! We will be able to take the driveway circle again!

Fog in the valley portends a hot day.

Mason & Dixon were groomed, bathed, brushed & summerized this week…by me! Good grief but they have a lot of fur! I have continued to brush them daily still working out the sloughing undercoat. Every single time I get a full grocery bag of fur! A FULL GROCERY BAG! EVERY SINGLE TIME!

A very clean & soft Dixon taking a nap.

Isla loves the pool but hates her bath! LOL! Too bad, little dog! I found a tick on her chin after a visit to the goat pasture & that means she will be bathed every time after she joins me in the pasture.

This was the week for hens to receive Brewer’s Yeast & Thorvin Kelp with their feed. They love it! Egg yolks should be deep orange! They are inhaling oyster shell calcium as a supplement to harden the egg shells.
The hens had a gourmet breakfast this morning. I pulled all spinach plants from the garden due to bolting in the heat. Additionally they enjoyed cabbage leaves & arugula. No mice this morning. I have to check the water fount twice a day with the heat & their high protein diet. I may add a touch of salt to the water this afternoon…

Isla was hot so she just walked down & jumped into the pool by herself!

The spinach bolted, the arugula & lettuces are threatening to bolt. Tomorrow morning will be spent planting Pink-Eye Purple Hull Peas in their place. I will replant the cool weather veggies in late August to have them into & hopefully through Winter. The Spring Peas have finally bloomed! Finally! Carrot greens are thick so I assume the roots are developing. Potatoes are blooming which means little potatoes have formed deep down in the dirt. The Sweet Potatoes are still lagging behind, as are the sweet & hot peppers & tomatoes. They were all stunted by the extreme cold we had back in May. It would probably be prudent to ditch these & buy new plants at the co-op…phooey!

The goats are spending all day in the shade everyday. The kids are growing nicely. More buyers coming to check them out next week.

Little Heart, sold last week.

Well, it has finally happened. The little tractor died. The cost to repair it, the amount of money we have spent over the past 5 years of owning this compact Kubota tractor, we could have/should have bought the larger size that we needed! We must have a tractor, especially with the Lord’s good rain that makes everything grow so well, to the point that if Walter doesn’t get busy eating lots & lots of weeds soon, he will disappear in the middle pasture! Since only Heidi & GG are still nursing their kids, I am seriously reducing the amount of feed for the goats to encourage their cleaning of the front pasture.
DH is researching tractors, costs, locations, service locations… so we should be bush-hogging again soon.

Let me know if you want eggs this week. Reply to this email or text me.
I will be out of town next weekend, so unless you buy eggs this Sunday, they will only be available if you drive out to the farm before Thursday.
Hope to see you Sunday morning!

Egg Customer Letter 5/28/2020

May 29, 2020

We are worshipping the Lord at Stephens Valley Church this Sunday, therefore I will have eggs for all who want them! We will distribute them outside the church, not inside! Email or text me to place your order.

I apologize for no letter last week. My excuse: lots of farm work, fatigue, lots of guests on the farm over the weekend, more fatigue…
That’s why I am writing to you today – I only have today’s fatigue to deal with and potential goat buyers are scheduled for the weekend.

FARM NEWS
The kids have grown, have been weaned (almost all) and are all around adorable! There has been lots of interest by potential buyers…would love to sell the 17 before the last 3 are ready…

GG’s 3 kids born on May 19th. The solid white is a little buckling. The other 2 are nannies.

A Barn Swallow just buzzed me, looking for a place to build his mud nest. I discouraged him from using the ceiling fans out here on the deck.

I finally did it. I finally mucked out the chicken coop. Tough on my back but had to be done. Now the potato plants in the garden have been fertilized naturally! Unfortunately I could not finish mucking out the chicken run from the spent feed – so rotten that the stench destroyed me! I took a tractor-bucket load way down to the lower meadow tree line. Rather than a mask, which I always wear when servicing the chicken coop, I should have worn a gas-mask! Yikes! Maybe I can get back in there tomorrow for another load…
The hens did find a mouse nest in the coop – ate all the mice! Good hens!

Our garden looks fabulous with lots of spinach and lettuce. John David’s arugula is already trying to “bolt,” which is sending up a flower stalk to start making seeds. It doesn’t like the heat. Expecting the lettuce and spinach to “bolt” at any time.
Hopefully the cabbages will head up this weekend.
Isla got into my not-fenced garden area and enjoyed digging the soft soil, uprooting lots of sweet peas, sunflowers and knocking off squash blooms. Silly puppy! That got her a bath when we returned to the house! Dirty little legs and paws, claws! Then she took a long nap.

That’s a lot of goats, but not all of them!

Last weekend we were visited by a friend and his wife with 2 of his students from a school in Antioch. The 2nd and 4th graders met the goats, fed them raisins, collected eggs, looked at chicken ears (have you ever looked at a chicken ear?), picked radishes in the garden, petted the big dogs, ate popsicles and fell asleep on the bed swing on our back deck. We had fun!

My friend Joseph and our little guests! They earned this visit by being reading leaders! Precious girls!

Please let me know if you want eggs!
I hope to see you Sunday morning!

Egg Customer Letter – May 8, 2020

May 16, 2020

Another chilly, overcast day…with record-setting cold expected overnight! Yikes! Must cover the garden & the crepe myrtle & …everything!
Unfortunately, another Sunday without gathering ourselves together.
Eggs are available for everyone who comes out to the farm!
Prayers for our Church Council who meet tomorrow – wisdom regarding reopening church services.

Heidi’s little nanny baby!

FARM NEWS
Heidi delivered triplets late last Saturday afternoon. 2 little bucks & a beautiful little nanny. Mother & kids doing well.
Now we wait for GG…
That brings our kid total to 17. 17! Our small goat herd has exploded!
The kids are so much fun to watch as they run & jump & butt & scamper.

Last Sunday’s storm knocked down multiple giant trees on our property, the most inconvenient are along our driveway. We had to cut away a huge white pine with our neighbors cutting from the road to be able to exit our property. Another neighbor we had never met from a few miles way stopped as he & his son were driving by, jumped out with their chainsaw & started cutting. Love my in-the-country neighbors!
We are on the list to have the giant trees removed that block half our circular driveway.
Our power was out for 50 hours – not too bad. We do have a generator that kept the refrigerators & freezers in & enough plugs to keep our phones & computers charged.

Gorgeous giant wild cherry tree!

Isla continues to grow. Mason & Dixon continue to guard…except that Mason chased hens this morning when their fence blew down & I had to put him in time-out after one hen ended up in his mouth! Bad dog! The hen lost a few feathers & other than being terrorized, is fine. I tell those idiot birds to stay inside that fence but they refuse to listen!

Take a look at your calendar & come out to Santa Fe for a visit! We would love to see you!

Sorry for getting behind with Posts…situation normal for me!

It is a beautiful morning out here at the farm!
From what I have read, the Governor has lifted some/most restrictions on church services…finally…we may be able to meet in person soon!
When that happens I will email you for egg orders! We have lots!

FARM NEWS

Isla napping in my lap!

I got busy early letting hens out & letting Isla get her business done while I checked on the goats. Now Isla is taking her morning nap in my lap & DH has started removing the plants from their winter home – the garage – while I am sitting quietly. Ahh!

Heidi still hasn’t delivered & I worry that if she stumbles on a hill she will roll all the way to the feed pans. She is huge!
GG is getting bigger daily.
The kids are healthy and active & make me smile! I love my goats!
While bush-hogging in the central pasture this week Mason & Walter Buck played together! I think Walter has been lonely even though he can see, talk to & smell the nannies, he can’t run & play with them. He & Mason had a big time & it was fun for me to watch.
I will have goats for sale once they are weaned – as pets (they are precious pets!), for breeding & as meat.
Goat meat is the most widely eaten meat in the world. It does not taste like lamb! It takes on the flavor of what it is cooked with, whether beef, lots of spices, BBQ/smoked. DH has made the mental adjustment that this is meat & meat is good! I do have recipes…

Isla has settled a bit when around the hens. The girls still don’t like her, but at least they don’t run & fly & go bananas.
Lots of egg production & I have just gotten the go-ahead from DH to purchase my butchering supplies, so there will be ‘hens’ available for sale soon. Hens are old chickens for making rich broth & the reason God invented chicken & dumplings! I’ll let you know.

Mason actually played with Isla this week…for about 5 seconds. Progress.
Isla had her 2nd vet visit – she weighs 6 lbs.
Always lots to do on the farm. Lots of sweat & lots of smiles. Already harvesting lettuce & spinach from the gardens. Sweet peas are up as are cabbages, chard, garlic, shallots & evening the potatoes are sticking their little tuber leaves up!
Take a break from the crowded city & visit us down here in Santa Fe!

Egg Customer Letter 4/4/2020

April 7, 2020

Good Saturday morning! I miss seeing you and getting hugs from you! I hope you are well and staying a safe distance from everyone in your immediate circle. Self-imposed isolation is a discipline, and I don’t know about you, but I need some practice of discipline in my life!

I have dozens and dozens of eggs! Spring has spring and the hens are back up to full speed laying. However, we are all isolated from one another…so, none available for purchase until the travel and gathering restrictions are lifted.

I’m thinking Isla is papa’s girl…

FARM NEWS
We added a Cairn Terrier puppy to the farm last weekend. Her name is Isla (eye-lah) and she is black & brindle. Full of personality! Independent!
Crazy fast, especially when she is getting into something she is not supposed to, of course! Four pounds of trouble running and nipping!
Dixon has allowed her to be a pest but Mason refuses to get near her. He barks and growls when she tries then runs off. Moxie Kitty finally hissed and slapped her to calm her down.

Isla did watch Pastor Jim on FB Live last week!

We still have only 4 kids born of 3 Mamas: Sweetie 3/23, Barb (2) 3/26 and Sissie 3/27. The remaining 6 does look like they are going to pop if kids don’t come soon! Once all the kids come (could be 15+) it would be worth driving out here and watching them play…from the road, of course! (But I could sneak down with some eggs! Shh!)
Walter has been moved to the central pasture where he will see his nannies and talk to them but not breed until sometime in the fall. I have to reinforce the gate chicken wire this morning…

The hens are great, glad for the fresh weeds and bugs and the abundance of worms.

I am planning and planting a serious garden this year with the guys here to help. (I hope.) We will reinforce the “puppy garden” fence this morning to hopefully keep the rabbits out! Rabbits ate the cabbage and lettuce that I planted last month, but didn’t bother the red onions. I have a few plants and lots of seed to get in the ground today.

Judy and Peg, Barb’s kids, with little Sandy in the background.

Our oldest son, John David, has fully recovered from his bout of COVID-19. We did not get him tested but he had all the symptoms and was quarantined in his bedroom for 14 days. It took that long for his fever to return to normal for 3 days in a row.
Dear Husband, Jeffrey nor I ever had a symptom, but we self-isolated for the 2 weeks as not to be carriers.

That’s about it. Lots of work to do. Lots of critters to care for.
I wish you could join us out here in the fresh air and sunshine the Lord has graciously sent. It would make you feel less isolated just to walk around and breathe the fresh air, and maybe haul a bag or 2 of feed for me!

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday! This time last year we were in Israel! We walked Christ’s path from the Mount of Olives to the gates of the Temple Mount!
Nothing quite so earth-shaking this year, though we will decorate our front door and gate with green trimmings (some palms!) in recognition.
Jesus’ triumphal entry should be celebrated as we prepare our hearts for this coming week of His passion.

The Lord bless you and keep you!
This, too, shall pass.

Friday Egg Customer Letter 3/20/2020

March 21, 2020

Springtime has sprung…until Sunday morning which is supposed to be cold again…do I still have the water fount heaters on?…what was I saying? Oh yes, Spring has sprung and most of the hens are laying eggs daily. (Still need to butcher about 9…before the weather gets hot…)
However, like all of you, we are isolating ourselves. Hope y’all are healthy and well and strong, resting in the everlasting arms of our Savior!

We have an extra reason for our isolation: Our oldest son who arrived from NYCity last Friday, came with a cough that deteriorated to include a fever. He has been quarantined in his bedroom upstairs since Monday morning with fevers ranging from 102.6 to 99.2, and they vary all day long. We have him eating an excellent diet, hydrating with water, hot lemonade, hot tea, an occasional cup of coffee and stuffing him full of my homemade Elderberry Cough Syrup, vitamin C, vitamin D (he is deficient; so many reasons to live down South!) and colloidal silver. The virus, whichever variety it is, doesn’t have a chance!
JD will not be allowed out of his room until he is 3 full days without a fever, not taking aspirin. Nurse Mom and Doctor Dad have spoken!


Enjoying the abundance of earthworms!

Dear Husband, Jeffrey and I are strong and active and refuse to get sick! But we are staying away from the rest of the world as not to be a carrier of whichever virus JD has.


#2 son Jeffrey dribbling his imaginary basketball. He has done this since he was about 4 years old and started playing basketball. #3 son James is just as bad except his imaginary ball is a soccer ball.

FARM NEWS


Muddy feet!

The hens are loving all the worms surfacing to escape the rain water. I actually saw a 12” long earthworm – even made DH come outside to see it!
The hens do have muddy feet which means dirty eggs in the nests.
I laid in a good supply of feed before the isolation so the girls will continue to be supplemented with feed and scratch.

The goats are getting rounder and rounder! Except Walter, he is getting bigger and thicker.
Yesterday one or more of the silly goats turned over one of the cans where I store their feed. They were eating to their heart’s content…until I drove into the wet pasture, slid really, and admonished them for their hijinks! Sissie was too busy trying to maa with a mouthful of feed to run!

To the top of the Need To Buy list: a rack for the galvanized feed cans!


Last September taking Walter to the vet for his check-up.

Walter was introduced to the nannies on September 25th. Kid gestation is 5 months or 150 days. They could start dropping kids anytime. If all goes as planned, and it rarely does, when kidding is finished there should be 15 little jumping baby goats doing acrobatic moves around the front pasture.
Once the 1st is born, Walter will be confined (I hope) to the central pasture until time to breed again. I may have to move him up top and let him eat brambles and briars near the house.

Mason and Dixon are enjoying Jeffrey and he them.

If anyone is looking for me, I’m in the kitchen! Ribs and baked beans. Beef (and goat, shh!) Stew with carrots and potatoes. Grilled Steak and boiled potatoes. Baked Chicken and wild rice salad. On and on. Now that I have prepared JD’s bacon and eggs, I am making Tuna Salad and Chicken Gumbo with rice for lunch. I haven’t cooked like this in years!

Continue in prayer on behalf of our church, our nation, our world. Stay strong – this too shall pass.
And WASH YOUR HANDS!

It’s COLD! BRRR!
Arrow’s Keep eggs for sale! Who needs eggs?
The hens evidently liked the rain and laid lots of eggs this week.

Snow in the pasture. I blame our pastor, Jim Bachmann. That man loves snow and at the first mention started praying…and being a preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ who God loves very much, God listened to him! Thank You, Lord, for Pastor Jim and for the beautiful snow…and that the snow did not stay on the ground very long!

FARM NEWS
The hens survived all the rain and didn’t develop webbed feet, though I checked daily just in case.

It appears to me that all the young goats have been bred and maybe Joy and Dot. Heidi and GG are more difficult to discern. I’m thinking we should expect kids toward the end of May. Yippety-skippety! I love baby goats! They make me smile!

The big dogs are hunkered down in the doghouse this cold morning. Cocklebur-encrusted and dirty from all the mud around lately, they are warm and well-fed.

Jeffrey actually awakened at 7am our time this morning! WooHoo! Maybe he is finally adapting back to US time!

A fire in the fireplace. Sunshine coming through the windows with blue skies overhead. A warm cup of coffee in my hands. Time to finish my Bible study daily work!
Have a wonderful Saturday!

NOTE
DH has given me a Caribbean Cruise for my upcoming birthday, so we will not be at church next week. If you want extra eggs, you might want to get them this week!

Get them while you can! Jeffrey, otherwise known as #2 son, eats 6 every morning! He is tall and slender, proving that eggs are good for a body! Are you eating your farm-fresh eggs daily?
Who needs eggs this week?

FARM NEWS
Jeffrey saw us in the airport before we saw him, because when I finally caught a glimpse of this guy, he was smiling! I hugged and held and patted and hugged him again. I have not punched him in the nose…it’s such a pretty nose, looks like his Dad’s. I even remember when Jeffrey’s beautiful nose was broken – in a high school basketball game by a Brentwood Academy player caught him with an elbow, then the ref called a foul on Jeffrey! I was so mad! Don’t even get me started!

Oh, farm news… It’s wet and chilly and muddy and cruddy. The hens liked the warmer weather and produced a few extra eggs this week. I also increase their protein with top-dressing yeast powder. They love that! The hens were feasting on worms yesterday since the rain and warm weather forced them to the surface.

The goats are fat and sassy and always wanting to be petted, but mostly want to be fed!
I am still not sure which does have been bred. Other farms are already enjoying newborn kids. I’m thinking we won’t have any until sometime in late April. At least the kids won’t freeze when Mama Goat delivers them without my interference if they deliver in April.

Jeffrey met the big dogs when he exited the car Tuesday night. He was surprised by their calm gentleness and not pleased at the wet fur and cockleburs. He loves on Moxie Kitty many times a day. He named Moxie before she was born 15 years ago. He saw the goats and hens yesterday on a walk in the rain and is still adjusting to travel fatigue.

Let me know if you want eggs!
