It was a beautiful, but cold, autumn weekend here on the farm.
With the exception of one trip to the urgi-center for a tetanus shot,
it was a pretty great weekend.
To make a long story short,
I had a bit of an altercation with a dirty old (sharp) pitchfork...
and the pitchfork won.... just a flesh wound...
but it occurred to me that I had not had a tetanus booster in years.
Saturday morning's hay delivery was postponed to afternoon due to rain.
Then, with a tarp of the ground, Hubbs loaded that hay onto the elevator,
while Amanda and I stacked it in the hayloft.
Now we are ready for the cold weather to come.
We did a garden harvest...
picking the rest of the hot peppers and tomatoes in preparation for Saturday night's
temps which plummeted down into the 30's.
The hot peppers were quickly turned into hot sauce and hot pepper relish.
I had a little help with Sunday afternoon chores...
And then Sam...
and Annie decided to join the fun.
Naturally, Chloe had to do show the pups that this was her territory,
and ran them off in short order!
Luckily, Annie can out-run anything...
and Sammy is used to slipping under the fence out of harm's way!
Guess what Ginger and MaryAnn are up to?
That's right... still snacking on apples!
