A Look Back At May

I forget just how busy this time of year is!  I can't believe May is gone and June is here!

Here's what we've been up to on the Micro Farm:

Hubby found a used rototiller for a really good price and grabbed it.  It does a great job and we were finally able to put in the rest of the garden before Memorial Day.

Our female rabbit did not seem to be pregnant as we originally thought, so we're hoping the reunion with the male results in babies by the end of this month.

Our children had a big picnic birthday bash, since they are all Spring babies.

Hubby's got the pig pen up, the shelter set, the trough ready...all we need is the gate attached, a water pan and the pig!

Our church is giving us their old shed since they were just going to throw it away, anyway.  It'll become the barn down back!!  Huzzah!  We just have to figure out how to get it from church to homestead.  Thankfully, some other church members are working on that issue.  I'm trying not to worry about it, but I'll be happy when it is settled in the bottom of our property.

Harvesting is starting to pick up.  The first run of radishes have been pickled, beets planted in their stead and another row of radishes planted in another location, just because.  Spinach is thriving, lettuce got replanted since none of the original seeds came up.  Strawberries are blossoming and starting to form fruit.  Rhubarb is pretty much done....mmmm....strawberry rhubarb cobbler.

I had to net up the strawberries because the wild turkey were coming in and scratching up the young plants.

Homeschooling is pretty much over with other than some wrap-ups.
