Now offering GIFT CARDS!!!

FRIDAY FARM REPORT 12/10/2021

It's beginning to look like Christmas

We have been busy getting ready for Christmas. Gifts are all bought and most are wrapped.

 

 I have been making one batch of cookies a day. Most of the cookies will be made except the ones I can't freeze. The picture is oatmeal raisin cookies. I love soft and chewy cookies. I lost my recipe and found this one on the internet. They are hard as rocks, If you have a good, soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, would you share it?

 Jack wanted to decorate a gingerbread house. I bought this wilton cookie mold years ago. One year I baked 11 gingerbread houses for all the grandkids. Thankfully this year was only one.

 Jack decorating his house. Doesn't everyone have a Christmas tree on their roof?

 He was so happy with his house. For every candy and squirt of icing that went on his house 2 went in his mouth.

 Jack and Papaw decorating the tree. We got a skinny tree this year

Our farmhands M1, M2 and L came over to make some hot chocolate bombs.

I got a milk machine to try and review. They sent me a cow milker so I couldn't use it. I gave it to M1 because he likes to tinker. Here is his invention. He strapped it on his battery four runner. He uses it to suck water out of puddles. He reminds me so much of my son Erick when he was that age.

Oh the sights, sounds and smells of breeding season have begun. We are only going to breed two this year. Mimi went down with Rango on Wednesday and Hailey is in heat today. Hope they settle. We will know if they don't come into heat in three weeks

Winter time not a whole lot goes on here at the farm so the farm reports may not be every week. If you have any ideas or suggestions for my blog post I would welcome them. 

How was your week?
