Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Farming and Weaving, a very brief overview!

Luckily, this is not a "scratch and sniff" photo. The girls are growing well for this winter's eating, but they sure do stink! All CornishX do. Chicken *hit doesn't smell good, but eating breed chickens really have an awful odor. Other details "of the why" I will keep to myself!

Bee Balm and Cone Flowers I keep meaning to plant

Mindless wood carvings of the summer.

Rayon scarf

and another rayon scarf! Clever.

I'll be away for a bit. Family issues and I'm flying out to Arizona this Monday. Not the best time of year to visit the State, but if you're in the Phoenix/Peoria area, send me COLD air. I'm going to swelter.
We sent 7 critters off to auction this week. Mr Buck has been retired (sent to auction) and Joey will be the new goat stud. I must get a picture of the studly dude. Whadda guy. Several lambs and kids and one dairy goat (crazy girl) headed out as well. I'm afraid some of the spent hens are due to go soon as well. I've found raising chickens much easier overall. However, the hens did a job on the asparagus and raspberries this summer and Mr Princess is not a Happy Farmer. I keep yelling, "FENCING, YOU MORON"! No, don't like the word either, but how many times must this be reiterated, I ask you? Late Blight has hit the North East and I'm afraid all my the tomato plants must be ripped out. No idea if the potatoes will make it. Note: I had to plant a second crop because the first rotted due to all the rain we've had and continue to have. This is the same blight of the infamous Irish Potato Famine. That's what brought my family over here. I do wonder what it would have been like to have been brought up in Ireland. Brief thought though only, since I probably wouldn't have existed! A fond fondue until I'm back in the Land of Much Rain.

Oh gawd, those cornie rocks are such a lot of work! Yummy, but ack.

The rayon scarves are lovely.

Best of luck in the oven part of the country.

Bummer about the blight. I've been reading about it for a few months. Do you have to do anything to the soil after? --syl

Love the rayon scarves! Sorry to hear about your crops. I heard them talking about the blight on the news. Wasn't I just joking about that? I didn't know it was possible in these parts!

Have a safe trip!

Busy summer you have ahead of you and sorry that it has to be in Arizona.

Best wishes to you - whatever the Arizona trip requires - and my sympathies. Arizona in the summer is, Arizona in the summer.

We lost the center of our potato crop due to hose leak. Potatoes don't like to swim. And then just minutes ago, Ian brought in my bird-pecked first red tomatoes. He feeds those birds and they eat *my* tomatoes. They're too little to eat or I'd shoot them. Oh wait, then I would have to actually own a gun. I need to live in a condo with poolside a concierge to bring me iced ripe tomatoes, vine ripened, of course.

I hope to get back to blogging after the New Year. I've been flying back and forth between PA and AZ dealing with a very elderly parent with health issues. I had to close up Mom's home and move her into assisted living. I'm flying back out this Monday and will be gone 10 days. I've actually gotten a little weaving done this last stint here at home. Thanks for asking!
