Heat!

The past few days have been hot, not terribly hot, but hot is hot.  On the weather last night, however, the forecaster said that towards the end of the week, we are going to suffer with “volcano heat.”  Lovely. Yesterday I went into the goat shelter and saw a black snake sticking out of what […]

This has to be a new record …

I didn’t write at all this week … damn, guess that means I’ve been busy and I have been.   It seems like the tasks are never ending.  This week was particularly compromised because we went to the Denver Farmer’s Market for the first time this week.  There was a lot to do to get ready […]

Settling into the Farmer’s Market

It’s becoming routine now and people are starting to get to know us.  Two different people stopped by to tell us how good the rabbit and chicken was that they bought and one bought another chicken and the other reserved a rabbit from our next batch.  We love repeat buyers!  Sold all of the eggs […]
