Everyone and everything at FurryCreek Farm is happy and relatively healthy. Marva has just gone back to work after having a minor surgery on her hand. Joey the big white goat is limping from what appears to be an injury to her front leg. A few of our original chickens passed on due to old age (they are not so happy), while Marva has been busy hatching a new batch of chicks for market and our coop.
Our neighbours, Gary & Kathy, gave us some of their extra seed potatoes and even though I said I was not growing potatoes this year, I now have 60 feet of them planted. It is definitely time to buy and plant seeds for the rest of the garden. So far all I have done is rototilled the garden beds four times so far.
She completed her foundation training and graduated with distinction. At the end of last year Pippi entered her first Dog Show in Port Alberni winning "Best Baby Puppy in Show". This coming weekend she is entered in the Tyee Dog Show in Duncan and we are hoping for great things from her.
You ask what else have I been doing? I say remember the 30 Maple trees that Marva's father fell last winter. So far I have cut, split and hauled up to the woodshed six cord of wood. This has made a dent in the felled trees, just a small dent but we will be warm next winter.
