Some days are just grand! Hubby had to work late therefore, I had to do all the feeding and milking! It was just Jesus, me and the animals! There might have been a little singing Jesus loves me going on! The funniest thing the barn got real still when I first started singing. Then Cocky Locky chimed in growing and Valentino started singing in his very high goat voice.
Hazel Hen and her youngin scratched at my feet staying close by.
Yep! Some days are just grand!

Good Morning All You Fine Folks!!! Just a little mini intro, this is our quarter of a mile driveway. Yes it's super rough. Oil field trucks have traveled this road until it is the roughest in all of Creek Co. (I think)
Anyways it leads to our happy place! We homestead 20 acres! We are goat milkers, egg gathers and rabbit raisers! We are also dog and cat lovers!
We are still learning many new skills. We also stick to the old ways as much as possible! My grands call us hippies (the good kind) they say!? This short clip is just little glimpse of what you might see around #applesnroseshomestead.
We also love fun, lots of fun yall!!!

This came straight out of the nest. It's so strange, it's kinda like it's solid without a shell. It's way different than a soft shell.
I have one girl that lays soft shell eggs a couple of times a month.
Just wondering if y'all have ever had anything like this?

3 pounds and 8 ounces of Gouda Goat Cheese! It's curing and I'm growing very impatient!
Made here on the homestead. We know exactly what is in this cheese and all hands that are the makers of this cheese!
Just knowing that makes me happy!
This post is the story of goat cheese from barn to kitchen!
The whey from the cheese is outstanding for so many things. In the picture here we gave it to the plants and our little lemon tree.

How's your morning going? My morning has been busy, the kind of busy that makes you say Thank God I'm a Country Girl!
Started at 6 am letting everyone out of the chicken house before coffee yall!!! Then I got Donny off to work packing his lunch first!
Threw the bedding in the wash.
Went to feed and water the rabbits. Burned the trash, yep we still do that.
Turned the water on in the raised bed!
Hung the bedding on the line, one of my favorite smells in the whole world sheets dried on the line!!!
Finally harvested our little garden and WOW, we got a mess of squash which I'm fixing to fry and eat until I can eat no more! Oh and yes I'm going to catch up on my cup of coffee!

A walk to our pond always does me good! Some days I just want to remain there and listen to what God has created and stand still, waiting for his direction.

Ain't it so cute, baby melon! It's a mystery melon, we got the seeds from my bil and he cross pollinates a lot. So it's always like a surprise. One squash plant looks like a cross between yellow squash and scalloped squash. 💁

Our Mullen harvest! It's drying naturally out in the hot Oklahoma Sun. After it dries we will store it glass jars in the pantry. Hopefully it will be enough to help the whole family thru the winter!
Mullen is a natural decongestant. We drink it mixed with mint. It can also be inhaled or smoked for deep congestion.
We drink it as hot tea and it totally helps.
We have a lot of allergies, so this is our go to!
Mullen grows wild in our area, so that is even better! It's one of God's medicines!

Can we just take a moment and talk about home remedies? My 13 yr old grandson suffers from the worst allergies I have ever seen. So first thing yesterday when I picked him up he asked for some medicine the kind I make. He wanted some elderberry syrup. Which I'm out of , but the berries are close to getting ripe. This morning he asked for some Mullen, mint tea he is on his second cup.
I know for sure the Mullen will help with his congestion and the peppermint will help with his sinuses and upset tummy.
I also dropped a couple of drops of peppermint oil onto a cotton ball so he can inhale it to help his breathing.
I'm pretty much addicted to peppermint oil! 💁😊
Will be posting on wild Mullen later this evening! It's so exciting!!! #Applesnroseshomestead
