Birthday, and all in a day's work
Wes turned 12 two weeks ago.
It has become the tradition to have watermelon on his birthday.
DH re-did 4 gates. This one is across the back of the milk barn. The jerseys walk through this area, to enter the milking parlor. There's a small pasture behind it that animals need to be put in occasionally. With no gate here, animals make a huge mess on the concreted, and knock over tools etc., that are stored there.
Another gate at the back side of the milk barn, and one across the road to the hay barn.
It seems that every time we did in a place where you wouldn't expect a water pipe-----there's on there.
I believe we have hit every main pipe on the property by now, and should know where they are all at now.
And the gate that Emmi twisty-tied together a few weeks ago, when the pigs got to rough, has now be re-done.
This one used to be a double gate, which was a huge pain. Since no one's arms are 8 feet long, it was hard to close, one side would always swing open, before we could get the other side swung shut.
We've been enjoying lots of squash and zucchini.
Vegi Tian is a favorite.
