Some days it seems as if I worked all day and got nothing done. Since that has been a persistent feeling this month, today, I decided to write down what I did.
Cleaned and stemmed the grapes, laid them on trays and put in freezer, (I’ll thaw them out and dehydrate when the cucumbers are done -to make raisins)
Loaded the dehydrator with cucumbers chips.
Cleaned and cooked collard greens
Took food scraps out to sheep
Went to the grocery store
Fed the bees
Picked an apron full of apples, cut and cored them to cook (too many earwigs in them so lots of discard)
Took scraps to sheep
Went to upper barn, fed sheep, put soap in the barrel with soaking fleece and filled with water.
Mopped kitchen floor
Made lunch (finished lunch at 2 PM)
Sat down to watch some “Back to basics summit” homestead videos
Fed dogs and sheep in both locations
made just over 3 quarts of applesauce
husked popcorn – Isn’t it pretty
That looks better, I really did do something and feel justified being tired. Off for a nice relaxing bath and then put the feet up and watch another sewing video. Maybe tomorrow, after gym, and a few basic chores, the rest of the sheep will get wormed and we will start deciding which rams to put with which ewes. They are definitely getting interested.
