I build websites and raise dairy goats and poultry on a little farm in NWPA.
- As of today (5/14/2020), I haven’t left our house/yard for 62 days. The kids have been out of school for 60 days. I’m a little ashamed to admit that I’m not bothered at all by not being able to leave the house. I’m really enjoying working on home improvement projects and projects around the farm, and I’m enjoying not having any distractions from the “hustle and bustle” of being asked to go places. Guess I really am a homebody after all.
- We ripped out a bunch of hedges in front of our house and we’re installing two 8’x4′ raised beds for some herbs and veggies. I’m really excited about having a kitchen garden right outside my door! Mike and Ben leveled the area and I just ordered the lumber. Once the beds are built, we’ll order in some nice soil to fill them and we should be ready to plant by our last frost date (Memorial Day weekend).
- I’ve been very busy milking goats and raising up the first group of kids born on the farm in April. There’s not a ton of extra milk yet (because a lot is going back to the kids) but I did make a couple batches of cheese, and even made some goat cheese and spinach ravioli. (SO GOOD!)
📺 Watching | Old episodes of “Scrubs” on Hulu, so I can listen along to…
🎧 Listening | The “Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald” podcast, which is fantastic! (Their theme song alone is worth a listen if you are a fan of Scrubs.)
📖 Reading | City of Ghosts by J. H. Moncrieff
📷 Gear | Continuing to use my AirPods Pro every day!
