Thank goodness for some wet weather, we don't have to do any fencing today! Johnny went to Horizons Residential Care Center in Rural Hall, NC this morning and purchased some half-gallon canning jars for my goats milk. When you're getting 2 gallons a day, it fills up everything fast. These jars were used back in the 30's when they were a children's home. They probably had 800 of them in storage. The money they receive for the jars will be used for the developmentally handicapped that are there at the home now. I found them listed on Craig's List. Had to get a new tractor tire for the Massey Ferguson. Somehow, the side of the tire got a big cut in it and went flat. We just had the other side repaired last week - - a flat and a leaking valve stem. Hopefully, we will not be getting any more flats any time soon on this tractor. We use it quite a lot to help with the fencing because of it's front end loader. Darren Ziglar and his Dad stopped by and tried out our peach homemade ice cream using goat's milk. At first they just wanted a taste, but ended up eatting a big bowl each. They really enjoyed it. I'm changing my milking schedule to 9AM and 9PM now. The 6PM schedule seemed to interfere with dinner every night and we weren't getting to eat until late. We'll see how this works out.
