Friday Wrap Up

Tomorrow is my Willow's birthday celebration! We are going to have family over to cook out and swim. She actually turns 10 on the 22nd!

Here is  wrap up from this very busy week!

Canning officially began this week with a batch of 21 quarts of kraut! Here's what I did, packed shredded cabbage tightly into jars. Add 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp white vinegar to each jar and fill up with boiling water. Place lids on but only put bands on very loosely. Place the jars in warm spot , out of sunlight. It should be ready in 2-3 weeks. I placed my jars under my pool deck outside and covered them with an old brown sheet.

Indiana helped me make Willow's birthday cake. She wanted a mermaid cake so Indiana made a tail from fruit roll ups. She also pressed gum drops flat and cut them to look like sea stars. Who's the cake boss????

 The baby roasters are out on pasture now. The pen is 5x12 and has a wooden door on one end so I can give them fresh food and water 2x a day. They also have a tarp over the back third so they have a safe place to sleep and get away from the rain. The love it outside.
There is a rope in front so that they are moved to a fresh piece of grass each morning.

                                                         This teen loves her dog!!!!

                                                      She also loves this horse!!!!

There are now three mama birds walking around with rather large clutches of chicks.

These two little boys want to be outside all day, and if they can pet chickens all day...even better!

There are several waters for the hens, but they prefer the horse's water trough.

I still need votes on Circle of Moms Top 25 Mom of Teens!!! Thank you soooo much!!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!!!
