Hey, guys! So it’s been a while since I did an “around the farm” post. I figured it was time for another!
It’s been really, really dry, so when Richard, our farmhand, uses the leaf-blower, there are clouds of dust. I certainly hope we get rain soon, because it’s so dry it’s dangerous for fires. In fact, our county has a burning ban right now. The weather reminds me of Irving Berlin’s Blue Skies. (Blue skies, smilin’ at me….nothin’ but blue skies, do I see 😉 only today it was gray skies so I guess that doesn’t really work)
This is our spring, which has been here for a really long time – it was here when we bought the property, so I’m not sure how long. It’s all dried up
But we have a run-off from the nearby river, so we still have some water on the property plus our wells.
Oh yes and this is a glimpse at our driveway. It’s incredibly steep.
And now…for the moment you all have been waiting for….
Okay, I realize that these really aren’t all that little anymore. They’ve grown. Y’see, they were born a while ago. I’m not sure how long. (I’m really failing this farm girl thing) I absolutely REFUSED to look at them because I thought we were going to eat them. I mean, not as babies, but when they grew up and got big and fat. We bred the rabbits for meat anyway, so why SHOULDN’T we eat them? I LOVE rabbit meat! But no. All the cousins had to look at them and decide that they were cute. Cute bunnies: no meat. I mean like, how disappointing is that? Very. Very disappointing I tell you.
But they are kind of cute, now that we aren’t eating them 😉
There are seven. We haven’t named them, because we were going to eat them, but even after we decided (What’s with the “we”, ARIA? It certainly wasn’t MY decision.) that we wouldn’t, we still didn’t name them. So they are unnamed rabbits.
I recently got Photoshop and Lightroom for picture-editing, and I really like them! Photoshop is a little confusing and complicated, but I’m learning. And Lightroom is a breeze.
So. What do you think of our new baby bunnies? Have you ever eaten rabbit?
