Mud and Mishaps

Tortuga Thursday 
In 2012, on the plains of Northern Arizona, two families joined forces and began the trials and tribulations of building a small family farm with nothing in the bank but love.

Our road is a river
The biggest news for this Tortuga Thursday is mud and more mud. The rain and snow started in November. Since the first of the year, we've had more rain than in the last five years for this time of year. Since our road is dirt and so packed down, drainage is about non-existent.

Got a call from our great neighbor, Eunice. She said she had eggs for us and a present for Sadi's birthday. Hard to believe she's turning two today. Eunice also mentioned she has baby goats just a few days old. I couldn't resist trying to get over to their farm with Sadi to see the babies. Sadi's excitement was worth the chance of getting stuck. And we did. I didn't even make it to the end of our property line. So, Dave and Eunice hopped on the tractor and he pulled me out. He no sooner got me high and dry when an SUV up the road was spinning his tires. Dave saved the day. I think he thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadi had to miss the baby goats but the adventure was fun, especially since Dave let her sit on his tractor.

Sadi feeding PJ
Our newest addition, the baby kitty, now has a name - PJ. This is for Puck Junior. Lance had a cat for years named Puck which he adopted while playing Hockey in Minnesota...hence the name. This kitty looks so much like Puck, he has been named as his Junior. He's an outside cat but has a temporary home in our messy garage because it's so cold out.

Greenhouse veggies are keeping us happy. Garlic is sprouting. Now let's hope for
no rain until the roads dry out!
