I’m reminded of that huge peak in a large roller coaster – you go up, up, up, up and up, then you drop like a rock and go through a couple loopty-loops!
High: We processed our chickens and have gotten some pretty positive feedback about them!
High: The baby Barred Rocks and turkeys are really growing and thriving!
High: The first quail hatch are in the flight pen and are flying really well.
High: The weather has been fabulous, which enabled our late garden to take off.
High: The sunflowers are growing well, especially where the egg layers have been.
Low: A storm came in Monday and flipped the roof off of the porch on the Man Cave, broke the chimney and scattered debris all around the house.
Loopty-Loop: It also flipped that doggone Eggmobile – AGAIN! Snapped the 2X4 braces in half. We lost 6 of our hens this time, plus all the day’s eggs.
It blew from the east which was bizarre since the storm was moving west to east. There were some rotating cells in the area, so who knows whether it was straight line winds or a small bit of twister action. Ah, well. It could have been much worse. I suppose it takes the lows to make you really appreciate the highs! We still wouldn’t trade what we are doing!
