It appears that I may possibly be getting back to my normal schedule starting next week. The new kid I am training seems to be working out well so there shouldn't be any need for me to be putting in as many hours. Then I can start trying to get some of this stuff I been putting off around here caught up.
This heat wave seems to be waning as well too although I think we are past any chance of a cool day now until September.
I managed to get out of work before 1pm today and then came home and slept all afternoon. I know I know I had a lot of stuff to work on but having already put in 50 hours in four days I needed a nap.
I been letting the flock out into the Western pasture at night the last week because they are not able to get out and forage enough during the day. It's just been too hot for the old girls and a few of them were beginning to get a bit thin for my liking.
The Buckwheat is sprouting but I think the birds did a real number on some of the seed I spread because I am finding an awful lot of broken seed husks laying around out there. I think another seeding right before a rain may be needed. I thought I had managed to cover most of the seed up with my make-shift harrow but I guess I didn't do as good a job as I thought.
Always something isn't it?
So anyway as I said hopefully things will be back to normal starting this next week with more regular and longer posts, some more fencing project and a better job at replying to comments.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
