The warm weather is melting the snow and ice and our farm is looking pretty sloppy. The gravel driveway is a mess! The chickens love being outside, and the turkeys like to sneak in through their coop door and steal the chicken feed. Last night and this morning we let the young group of six goats roam around while we cleaned out their building. A job I’m glad is finished.
Saturday a package of Tahitian vanilla beans arrived and yesterday I measured, weighed, chopped and mixed the vanilla beans with the vodka. I have two pints steeping on the counter.
It took a total of 10 minutes. Easy, peasy. In the meantime I still have to buy regular vanilla while I wait for the beans and alcohol to do their magic.
The farm has been fairly uneventful, which isn’t bad. No news on the fox. I guess no news is good news, right? I’m busy planning a family reunion here at the farm this summer, and we are deep in discussion regarding our Year 2 business plan details. Aside from that, the only news is that Dan finally shaved his beard. I posted this artsy photo on Facebook on New Year’s:
After three months, he was tired of it, and off it came.
Fortunately, the mustache went too. This was just a brief moment of insanity and goofiness!
What can I say, he’s my funny valentine!
That’s our week on the farm!
