I keep forgetting that the alliance, guild, whatever, is here. I seem to pop back in every now and then and check on things.
the new homestead is going well. Getting ready to raze the garden beds to get ready for a fall planting. (all 8 of them).
We have switched focus on the rabbits. We now have japanese harlequins, American blues and one or two nz/ab crosses. Out are the Flemish and the pure new zealands. We're going to be forcusing more on the heritage breeds. Can't WAIT for it to get cooler again so we can breed and fill the freezer again!
On the poultry side of things, gone are the turkeys and quail. Those experiments were wonderful and tasty, but their time has come to an end. So with the chickens we now have muscovy ducks. Harvested our first 5 drakes over the last few weekends. Made my first batch of duck prosuitto as well. (Still ageing... the jury will still be out on that one for a few more weeks.) Now to find some more duck fat to confit some legs. It's amazing that I keep finding all the low fat animals to raise here.
