Just about every time of every season it is a busy time on a farm. One of my favorite sayings is that "I'll have more time in the evenings to get more stuff done in the house because it is getting darker earlier!" But with the invention of the headlamp and the fact that I always seem to be busier than I thought I would be means that I've made a misconception of my ability to get done outside before dark.
I think that me also be attributed to the fact I keep adding animal species to the farm, and looking at ways to add in animals to fit a need I think I may have.
Fall is my favorite season. As the leaves start to turn and the air turns crisp, it's just that feeling that sometime is coming. That something is realistically Winter, but that is for another day. The grass stops its incremental growth and for some reason the entire chicken flock starts to molt, but the goats ramp up the butterfat and cheesemaking takes over along with apple harvesting and canning.
As an original homestead back in the 20's, there have been many management practices on our plot of land, but we have striven to rebuild stressed areas for our use and to rebuild the land for the local flora and fauna.
So our farmstead is here to sustain us, the land, and our local community.
