“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Sleep... Wake Up... Repeat

It's 8 PM (last night) and I am out tucking in all of our friends.
First stop is the pig yard... it's empty... so everyone must be out in the pasture.
I call them... high voice, rapid..."Pig, Pig, Pig!"


And they come running.


Then I call the sheep... "Sheepies!" (repeat a couple times...)
and the sheep head in as well.


Everyone is rewarded with a cracker...


or two...


I stop by the chicken yards, where everyone (except the new gals) is roosting...


I usher the new girls into their house (takes two tries) and close the door for the night.


Everyone's water is checked (I'll change them in the morning.)
Turkeys are walked back down to the barn...


and into their pen for the night.


Fly masks are removed.


Ollie wants you to see his new fly mask (everyone got new ones this summer)...


Hay is delivered...


Manure is scooped...


Pigs are fed...


The runner ducks are tucked in their stall for the night, with clean water and food.


And the day is done.
It was a busy one... I repainted my bedroom walls
(luckily two are outside walls and are log...the other two were green and I was tired of it...
now they are cream...much brighter!)

Now it is time to sleep....
wake up... repeat!

I am always content at the end of tuck-in...
