This weekend the Mini Farm is open for business. It sounds funny to say that because if you called or just stopped by anytime you can still buy whatever we have for sell, but this is the advertised mass selling we do every month.
Chickens, man do we have the chicks to sell this month. Where they came from who knows but we got them. The brooder house and yard #1 is overflowing with anywhere from 2 to 6 week old yard birds of several different types of breeds. The price depends on the age and the breed. Plus the Bobwhite quail are getting on up there and can be sold and finished out for half of what a full grown one would cost at 18 weeks.
I think the wife only has a couple of pygmy goats she is wanting to sell and bring the herd to what we want to start off with in the fall.
I also think I am going to sell some worms. The youngest says we are getting too many in our worm beds and need to thin them down a bit but I need to check before I post the add. I know how she is.
The gardens are making just enough for us right now so there will not be any fresh produce for sell this time around. I have always wanted to do a CSA garden but am afraid of a bad growing year and then have to refund all that money that is already spent. I have the room if I wanted to do it but I just don't have the nerves at this time. The CSA is all part of the master plan but I am just not ready to build that many gardens.
All this is fixen to get a little harder. The wife went out and found a job and she starts tomorrow. I support her in this but on the other hand it is nice to have her at the house. With the middle daughter needing a car and the added college costs with the oldest one, the extra money will be nice and much needed. Even if we have to stop all the animal selling for a while, it would be worth it to get caught up.
I have an idea on a post I am going to write tomorrow titled "Standards Of Living". I was inspired to write it when I was reading about the hardships of one of the bloggers I subscribe to. Come back, check it out and tell me what you think.
