We got the opportunity to visit one of the coolest places around this week. Madison’s class took a trip to the pumpkin patch. It was great to see all the kids getting some exposure to the farm lifestyle. They got to see Ducks, Guineas, Lama, and all kinds of Goats in the petting Zoo. I think it’s just great that kids get the opportunity to visit farms. Mattie and Garett were amazed at the giant pumpkin grown there on the farm. It set the state record this year.
Work is still keeping me terribly busy with mandatory overtime due to new equipment installation. I have found a little time to get out and do some cleanup around the farm with the 6000. I had a huge Beech tree removed and we’ve been sawing it up for firewood to burn at the log house. Everything that was too small for firewood I used the 6000 to pile and burn. Then I snaked out the large trunk of it for sawing and splitting later. I’m putting in a culvert to keep an area below the barn dry so I can get through there in the wet months with whatever I need to.
I went to feed Big Red and the rest of the rabbits one day this week only to find Big Red out of his cage. I thought great I’ll never catch him. When I put food in his cage he hopped right back in though. I have got to find time to build new cages. Well tonight is trick or treat night so I hope everyone has a spooktacular time. Be sure to check out the pics I’ve added and check back soon!
