I’ve just read all your ‘new things’ posts in one go and WOW do you have a lot going on with all your gorgeous animals!
Half of me envies you so much for having them all and the other half thinks “Oh my, I couldn’t do all that!” Fingers crossed for you that the donkeys will become friends and that the rams will stop trying to knock you down.

Comment on Very short blog of recent knowledge. by Emily Denton http://offthesheepend.com/2015/07/very-short-blog-of-recent-knowledge/#comment-40 Wed, 12 Aug 2015 17:23:09 +0000 http://offthesheepend.com/?p=221#comment-40 I usually over plant my okra and then thin it out once it comes up. I would rather have too much okra than not enough. Really though, I never consider okra a vegetable you can have too much of. 😉 (You do soak the seeds in water overnight before you plant them, don’t you?)
You can freeze pureed pumpkin and still have good pumpkin for pies come October and November. Sunflowers will volunteer year after year like that too.

The first time any of my boys stayed away overnight I worried so much and struggled to sleep, I think they cope better with it than we do. Single woman issues can be hard too but the right man helps in a big way, especially with the trust issues.
I’ve not been reading your blog for long but I’m certainly learning a lot, so thank you for sharing

Comment on Counting Chickens. by Carol http://offthesheepend.com/2015/04/counting-chickens/#comment-11 Wed, 15 Apr 2015 01:00:55 +0000 http://offthesheepend.com/?p=102#comment-11 One of my most vivid childhood memories is being tasked with feeding Grandma’s chickens. I must have been 3 to 4 They were, of course, free range, though she did have a nesting house for the egg laying. So all little girls wore dresses back then. I lifted the front hem of my dress, so Grandma could deposit a scoop of feed. I was to go to feed the chickens by holding my skirt up with one hand and scattering feed away from me with the other. The chickens immediately rushed me. They knew I had food. I panicked and froze in place. When I didn’t scatter feed, they started pecking at my bare feet. I dropped my skirt which only made things worse. The feed fell on my feet so they pecked all the more until I was rescued. Watch your kids around the chickens. I’m now 69, but I remember this as one of the most traumatic events of my life.

Rex is a beautiful bird. It’s so easy to buy chicks, but learning to breed your own is a skill worth having…………Carol
