Today we did a lot of Sabbath chores and cleaned up around the cabin because Sunday Fellowship is going to be at our house this weekend. We have been having major problems with our Blog and that is why we have been so quiet lately. Sorry, we will try to get it up and running soon because we have tons of pictures to post.
Tracy butchered 3 male rabbits on Tuesday. She seasoned them with steak salt and basil, smoked them, slow cooked them and canned them. It takes about 2 fryer-size rabbits to fill a quart jar. So we got 1 and 1/2 quart jars of rabbit meat. We will be butchering again on June 30th.
Jennifer got her first peas out of her mini garden this week. Hooray! Sarah's corn is getting big and Robert has planted mostly leafy greens. But he does have cantaloupe, tomato and squash ( with a teeny squash on it).
We found that the raccoons have been getting into the corn bin up at the pigs. So Tracy set a trap with some cat food in it and we caught a big daddy coon! He was mad as a wet hen about it, too. :) He would growl if you got near and jump at the side of the cage.
The funniest thing just happened. While I (Tracy) was writing this blog, I hear Robert call "TRACY!! I NEED YOU!!" So I run out there ready to rescue him from a snake or some such scary critter... and here is what I find....
Robert on the motor hoist. He must have been bored because he somehow managed to attach his belt loop to the hook of this thing and crank himself a good 5 inches off terra firma. Stuck and uncomfortable, he calls out to his big sister for help. What does she do? Yell " WAIT THERE!" and runs to retrieve the camera and tells a few people on the way what Robert Einstein figured out how to do. Let's just say he walked carefully for a while. What a Kodak moment!
Well we have to go and finish cleaning up.
