This last week was a busy week at our homestead. We had our first 4-H meeting of the year. My two oldest are excited...we are blessed with wonderful friends who are letting my son raise broilers at their house and my daughter gets to raise meat rabbits at another friend's home. This will be our first experience with raising animals and spending a week at the fair!!
We will be raising a total of 10 broilers and then another friend is raising another 10 broilers for us. I'm so excited to not have to worry about buying chicken at the grocery store much longer. My two kids in 4-H will be doing a total of four projects.
We are also planning our garden. I'll be ordering our seeds next weekend. I still can't make up my mind what I want to plant....the seed catalogs make everything look good!! We're hoping to grow two types of potatoes, sweet corn, and onions at my parent's farm...we're only planting things that will do well with little help since they're not living there yet.
In our kitchen I'm hoping to get some freezer cooking done. I'm a huge fan of "dump" cooking. I don't have to cook anything ahead with that method. I'm also going to be mixing up some homemade mixes. I'm planning on Tuesday also being the day to make yogurt.
