Whew! Last 8 Dirty Birdies are on ice. Had shower, clean clothes, BJ taking shower now. Then we go to TSC to meet a guy and swap a chicken for catfish. LOL Then back home and I can get some processed today. Will can dog food tomorrow and hopefully make up the rest of the plum juice into jam.

I need to bail out the 300 gallon horse tub, scrub and refill, they might just get it topped off for now.
Hot and humid outside. We are in the days of early morning work, afternoon hibernation under the AC.

I got "staples" for kid #2
Somehow we've ended up with boxes and boxes of staples. We hardly ever use the stapler. Let me know if I should send some to kid #2 ;)

I had flashbacks to when our washer died. -shudder-
With a family of seven that WOULD be a disaster. I suspect Bay could was clothes in the bathtub for 2 people for a bit until a new machine arrived.

Bail? Maybe siphon? Don't think I'd want to bend over and move over a ton of water out of a trough.

My field water tubs are mostly 100-150 gal, with a screw in drain plug. Just be sure to move aside when you open those drain holes. :lol: I do have a couple much shorter...so babies can reach a drink. Guess which ones the big girls like to use! :duc.

well most of the outside chores are done tine for school and house work. got more seeds in the ground and harvest some veggies. the chickens still need to be let out but that still up for debate as i am not sure i want them out anymore lol. need to get them a run built. suppose to have a heat index between 102-108 today so i am staying inside dh got mad last time i played outside and might have gotten over heated so i am under threat if i do it again. no intention of it thats for sure. debating between freezing squash for frying or canning more pickled squash.

My family’s favorite thing with zucchini is zucchini bread. It’s basically banana bread, but with zucchini. It’s really good, super moist, but I’m not sure if you’d want to turn the oven on in the heat.

I have some zucchini recipes your kids would like. Zucchini apple pie, zucchini fruit roll ups, and zucchini candy. I’ll try to round them up on my computer and post them for you. Also zucchini lasagna, use zucchini strips instead of pasta.
