Weekly (or so) update

Lots been happenin'. Picked up a couple Duroc/Tamworth cross piglets this weekend. One for the herd and one for the freezer come the fall. I like red pigs. Will get a picture up soon.

We also slaughtered a hog this weekend with friends. And then, the weather was so good (44 F when I got up this morning) that we slaughtered another this morning. Butcher later today.

Speaking of pigs ... we celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago and Mrs. Curley & Number 3 Son worked out a beautiful cake, pictured here.

Next we have a bowl of sugar snap peas from the garden. We've been having them with dinner all week. More to come. Beans are up as is the zucchini. We have more to plant, including a field of peanuts this week. We've (not me) been eating our onions too. Collards and the thinned beets are going to the pigs.

Here's a picture of our last goat moments after birth a week or so ago. I think it is the last of the spring.

And the most important happening in the last week was our youngest receiving her First Holy Communion on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima.

Life is good. God has blessed us abundantly.

Oremus pro invicem!
