So Many.....

I've been gone from the blogging scene for a while, a few weeks, in fact. So many things are going on in the world and in MY world, that I didn't even know what subject I should write about first. So I guess this blog post will just be all jumbled up. (Like it always is. lol)

Around the farm... We have just been trying to get somethings done before fall and winter comes around. Fencing and such. Nothing abnormal. We have been canning beans and beans and beans. (Did I mention beans?) That is the only thing that done well in our garden. So if nothing else, we will be able to eat green beans this winter. We went to farmers market and produce auctions to see how much veggies were going for around here. The tomatoes and corn were normal prices. Can you guess how much the green beans were? $85 a bushel!!!!!! If I didn't can everything we grow, I could make a fortune!

Some bad news from the farm..... We are going to have to get rid of George.  He went after our neighbors(on their own property). Once after the grandpa and one time after the kids as they were walking to the school bus. We saw it both times. We tried calling him back, but he acted like he didn't even hear us. The last time, when he went after the kids, Hubby chased him down with our car to get him away from them. George has just gotten too unpredictable to have around. Last night he chased our goats until they couldn't run anymore. They just stood there panting.  I've had enough. If  he's not going to be an asset to the farm, he has to go.

Now for news from around the world......

Is anyone else getting scared yet?  Democrats and Republicans fighting for what's best for our country. Major drought in our farm lands. And, rumors of economy collapsing. What happened to our wonderful country?

I could go on and on about these topics so I'll just leave that for other posts, but feel free to comment on how you feel about them. lol

So until next time,
