Three plus months have passed since we’ve had to give up our farm. There really hasn’t been much forward movement of which to speak. Tom is still looking for a computer programming position preferably close by in Louisville or Lexington. If that fails, we may be making a bigger move to where the jobs are. If you know of anything, here is Tom’s resume to hand out. Presently he’s working part-time at an hourly wage job to pay the bills. So, until he finds a computer programming position, we can’t afford, and don’t know where to move. For the time being, we are permitted to continue our housing agreement in Finchville.
We do still have frozen chicken and mutton, and potted herbs for sale. We also still have 8 packs of 150 count Egg Cartons. $37.50 each for anyone selling eggs. Please help us sell out so we can raise enough money not just to pay the bills but to move when the time comes.
Tom’s been container gardening on our back porch, mostly herbs. And he’s been planting what leftover seedlings from this Spring we have around the yard. We’ve already got little green tomatoes, and more spring onions than we can eat.
We only have 6 laying hens left since a neighboring dog killed 8 about 3 weeks ago. We are just now getting enough eggs for us to eat, but not anymore for us to sell or give away. Our new breed Araucana and Ameraucana, 3 left, are smart enough to roost in the trees overnight away from predators. The other 3, Rhode Island Reds, we put to bed in a safe place.
We also still have Chicken Coops for Sale.
There is still plenty left on the farm that needs to be sold, broken down, and moved. We are both still pretty rattled about the situation and avoid the old location. If we have to, for the sake of our mental sanity, it may come down to abandoning what’s left. We hate having to leave our things and leave the farm not in the condition in which we found it, but so be it.
Lastly, if you or someone you know wants to breed Great Pyrenees, Wendy is a 2 yr old female who will be in her 3rd heat sometime in the next 3-4 months. She has never been bred. She is currently residing with friends of ours in Spencer Co.
