Homestead Pictorial Update

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes! Got film developed this week. First up is plant life, with some of the radish crop displayed. I don't know if my decapitation in the picture is on purpose or by mistake.

The next two pictures are of the turnip gardens. The radishes came from the first, but already picked by this time, likewise the beets. Collards and most of the turnips are still there at the time of the picture. This was the very planting for this first garden. We spread hog manure on this section of grass mid-summer. Then tilled in old cow manure right before planting. Our most successfull section ever! The second garden is all turnips. You can see the long unplanted section behind it. It is now planted and I noted this morning that things (turnips and collards mostly) have broken the surface.

Now onto animal life..... First up is number two son with one of the kids we had last month. Next up are some pig pals-the brown one is Duroc who is due to meet his Maker in a week. Finally, we have a shot of our Hampshire Boar, Tarzan and the two prize gilts.

I have more photos to share, but will wait for the morrow.

Oremus pro invicem!
