    Baymule’s 2021 Garden

    Started my 2021 garden several days before we got hit by an ice storm and feeezing temperatures. I planted mustard greens, turnips and English peas. Couple days we got 7” of snow and more miserable freezing weather. Temperatures went all the way down to -4 here and have stayed in the teens and...

    Giant Pink Banana Squash PIE!

    We had our 3 granddaughters for the weekend. The 13 year old spent one night, then left to go stay at friends houses. So the 4 and 5 year old helped me pick out a Giant Pink Banana Squash to make a pumpkin pie. @digitS' I told you if I made a pie, it would get its own thread and here it is! LOL...

    I am going back to work

    I start a new job today. Yup, going back to work. Last year was a financial disaster. The truck went into the shop 4 times, the bills were $2,000+ and the last breakdown was $4500. The car broke down, more $$$, and the Kawasaki mule broke down-just the parts were $2,000. With the first...

    Wood Chips!

    In August of 2016, we were given 5 year old wood chip mulch left by power line cleaning crews. We lost no time in hauling it home to use on our sandy soil. Later on that winter, we found a power line cleaning crew in our area and they wound up bringing us over 100 loads of wood chips and parked...

    Baymule’s 2020 Garden

    Happy New Year! 2019 was a flat out, pure-dee garden bust. Drought, heat, failure. Ring out the old, bring in the New Year! Go 2020!! It has begun! We spent the last couple of days cleaning out the sheep barn. I practice deep litter, bedding with pine shavings, pine straw, leaves and hay. We...

    Weed Cloth-Anybody Use It?

    I have battled weeds since we moved here. I have big, tall, strapping, healthy weeds that take off and grow taller than I am. Plus I have all their smaller cousins that take up space down below, then I was cursed with wild or burr cucumbers that are on a mission to take over the world. I have...

    Taking Lambs To Slaughter

    @seedcorn Our lamb loading has a lot to be desired. We have invited our friend over to help us catch and carry lambs to the trailer, it took 2 or 3 of us, that worked, not great, but it worked. I have tackled them in the lot, slipped a halter on them and led/dragged them to the trailer with me...

    Ringo’s Lambs! Baymule’s 5th Lambing

    Ringo is a registered Katahdin ram that I have been in love with for quite awhile. When his owners Mike and Teresa, said on BYH that they were going to sell him, I lost no time claiming him for my own. It took some time for them to breed him one more time, find another ram, make arrangements...

    Ringo, Our New Katahdin Ram

    A member on BYH said about a year ago that he was going to be replacing his ram, Ringo. I sent him a PM and asked if we could buy him. We PM'ed back and forth over the past year and finally, he was ready to let Ringo go to his new home. The reason I wanted this ram so badly, #1. he is dog...

St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page shared a photo of the reptile relaxing on a front porch. “So….you never know what may show up on your door step!” the post read. “Just another...
