Garden Beets

Today we went to dig up some fresh beets for supper, they are the size of softballs lol! The well is finished and we started pumping our own water today. We cleaned our water storage tank and refilled it.

The well is 260 feet deep and the water level is at 228 foot. We are pumping 10 gallon a minute. Now we are planting trees.

Busy Spring

Our goat's had there babies on March 6th and the 10th both are fine and get in to everything, I got my goat milking stand built and had to have my daughter get in it so i could adjust the neck lock since her neck was about the same as our goats lol.

Me milking our goats with a milker from Dansha Farms, much easier then hand milking

Our drip system i made for watering our Fig tree's and Raspberries and Blackberries

Our spring garden, we have already been picking kale and collard greens

 Our new baby goats they are so much fun and love attention

We had to hire a new well driller he has been drilling a new well and almost finished now in under 2 weeks, the old well driller we had to file against him in court for not finishing the job and he was paid.

The Wild, Wild West

Yesterday my wife was in Bisbee at the thrift store and she heard this guy screaming at another guy then gunshots rang out, Within minutes there was a ton of police including border patrol, a swat team and the army blocking the road, The guy was screaming they will have to kill him but a few hours later he gave up, Don't know if the other guy is alive or dead.

The baby bunnies are growing fast, they eat alot!!!

 Here is the baby lambs we been bottle feeding, they will be big enough to wean next month.

We have started getting the garden planted, this year we are adding Strawberries, Blackberries, Himrod seedless grapes and Concord grapes.

Also our first tarantula of the year was on the porch this evening, this one is different then all the sun tarantula's we had last year, its all a grayish black.
