Growing Up Agrarian

We are four Christian, homechurched, homeschooled, homesteading, agrarian children growing up in Central Texas on a Ranch. We are Tracy,(15) Jennifer,(10) Robert,(9) and Sarah(5) Bunker. We also have one more brother, Thomas Shepard Bunker, who is in the courts of glory. We like to read books, raise animals, and play on the land. Tracy will be writing about the stuff we do. We hope you enjoy our Adventures!

Rabbits and Canning

Hello,
One day ( Lord Willin' that is) that will read "Canning Rabbits"

Tracy's female rabbit, Monica, gave birth to one stillborn kit on Saturday, but otherwise the mating in early October was unsuccessful. Tracy rebred them again today. Hopefully this time we will be blessed with a litter of two.

The Shopping Baskit had a ten pound box of bacon on sale for ten dollars, so we have been canning bacon as well as the meat from Louella the pig. Lots of canning! Mom has also been rendering and canning lard for soap, candles, and food purposes. We are still getting peppers and tomatoes and okra from our garden. But because of the lack of rain, no sprouts of the fall garden are showing.

We are still milking Holga, and are getting about a half a quart a day.

More later
