I know I am suppose to to be on blogger and a farm vacation but I wanted to say Howdy to two new readers of Modern Day redneck and brag a little on the farm.
Welcome to Lynda at http://thekingsplus2.blogspot.com/
and to Papa Toney over at http://papatoneys.blogspot.com/
Thank y'all for for hitting the follow button while I am out of sight and out of mind. I will return to my normal blogging in a month or so so in the mean time there are plenty of good blogs you can read in my side bar.
Thank y'all and again, welcome.
Here is a quick Farm update. All but eight chickens are gone. All but three goats are gone. All but two geese are gone.
It is quiet here on the Mini Farm.
Even in this heat the gardens are producing about 30 pounds of food every three days. Our shelves are overflowing with canned goods, our freezers are packed with produce. This is no vacation! We are canning almost every night.
OMG, how many ways can you put cucumbers up. Lets see, Dried Cucumber chips, Sweet pickles, Bread and Butter pickles, Dill Pickles, Sweet Relish, Hot Sweet Relish, Sweet Pepper Relish, Dill Relish, Hot Dill Relish, Cucumber Cole Slaw, Cucumber and Onions and I know I am forgetting some.
It is the same with everything. I tell you what folks, the secret is the shade. I am loving it.
Pigs, the pigs are gone. We got the first one back last week and he yielded 70%. The one inch pork chops I grilled over the weekend were to die for. Rich in flavor, Sweet and Juicy without adding anything to make it that way. Home grown pork is the way to go if you don't mind the high price and trouble it takes to get it on the table.
That's about it. The camper stays loaded, The fishing poles have are being used, the wife and kids are all healthy and happy, Life is good my friends, hot but good
Stay safe over the holiday weekends to come and I will talk to you then.
