    I need to walk the fence line this morning to see where the 50 or so feet of wire that was wrapped around one of the lambs' legs came from. She had to have gotten wrapped up in the last hour since I was down earlier and everything was fine. Having tame sheep is always a plus since I was able...

    We do have some fescue in a couple of our paddocks but they both get some afternoon shade so are doing ok so far. We took our numbers down so we are only running a total of 26 head now so the grass is holding up so far.

    It has been so dry that I'm glad I didn't do any spring cutting this year or it would be dead grass. Up until this year I have always mowed one or two paddocks that had the least desirable vegetation but the only bad graze I have right now is Perilla Mint. I finally got that down to one area...

    We just got added to the burn ban here and I'm amazed they waited this long. We have had less than an inch of rain for all of June.

    We planted some replacement seeds in several of our garden beds a couple of weeks ago since we are pulling out some of the early plants. Teresa wanted to take a "just because" picture of veggies in the fridge so that is attached. We have already froze about what we want for this season and...

    Just a teaspoon or so and it does work. I have just sprinkled it over the meat and stirred it in and it works also but you have the bubbly affect.

    I mix it in just using a spoon since it will mix with it all when it starts cooking. You don't have to wait the 15 minutes but if you start it cooking without waiting, don't freak out when all of a sudden you have water bubbles that will make you think you are going to have a mess. :) Most of...

    It changes the ph and breaks down the protein. The meat is tender and lets you brown the meat without it drying out plus you wind up with no big clumps of meat.

    I just browned some ground beef for a pasta dish this afternoon and when Teresa tasted a bit she said how come hers never cooks up that juicy. I'm not sure how it worked out but for some reason, I do most of the meals using ground beef but when I'm getting ready to cook it, I mix about a...

    Farmerjan's journal - Weather

    We were at 90 degrees today but the humidity was super low so it was nice out. We have had so little rain that I rain the weed eater around the high spots rather than mow.

    We had thunder in the area this evening that was just enough to keep Maisy from eating. It didn't bother Mel but when Maisy is stressed, Mel gets stressed also so he only ate about half of his feed. We have a bunch of tomatoes starting to ripen so hopefully we can start to can some pretty...

    Due to the distance, we only get together once or twice a year so no tents. We set a record in Nashville today with 101 degrees.

    I just need to watch where I'm stepping and remind myself not even to step anywhere when it is full of branches. :)

    Actually, everyone is driving except the son in California. They like it here but they are renting an Air B&B place built for entertaining. It has 8 bedrooms (and baths) plus a large pool which doesn't quite compare to our two bedrooms. :)

    It was already 85 outside at 8:30 this morning so we brought the lambs in again to pull more fecals to have that done before Teresa heads out of town later in the week. The family is meeting just outside of Tulsa for the Holiday. They tried to find something closer so I could at least go for a...

    You have a whole lot of people that have a really good idea about what you are going through and would love being able to offer any support that they can. I love what you are able to do.

    Mel is doing great. I have the dogs in with the 7 month old lambs now and they follow him around like he's their Momma. :) Bruce - I managed to keep the shoulder off of the ground and swung around enough to land on my hip.

    It is back to hot again today but I sure did enjoy the last several days in the low 80's. In spite of the heat outside, I made a big pot of Navy Beans and Ham soup that is always good no matter the temp. I got careless earlier today and fell out of the bed of the Polaris while trimming tree...
