Times are uncertain. This COVID-19 scare has us all taking precautions. Our state and local authorities have advised that we stay away from public places. It’s recommended that we practice social distancing to flatten the curve of new cases.

For RancherMan & me, that may look different than other folk’s social distancing. Come along and see what a day on the Homestead looks like during this time.

It's been recommended we all practice social distancing for a while to keep everyone healthy. Come see what a day on the homestead looks like. #TexasHomesteader

A Day on the Homestead: New Calf Needs Our Help!

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

I usually make plans for the day and work towards implementing them to keep things running smoothly. And then things change. Wanna see what a day on our Texas Homestead is like?

I’d already made all the preparations for my homemade Chicken & Dumplings supper. The cooked chicken was pulled from the freezer and the dumpling dough made in advance & stored in the fridge. Heck even the Homemade Broth was made & canned weeks ago. So all my advance preparations meant that supper tonight would be quick & easy. But then…

Join us for a Day on our Homestead. A first-calving heifer calved but didn't know what to do with her baby calf. Time was of the essence, they needed our help! #TexasHomesteader

Join Us For A Day On The Homestead

by Texas Homesteader ~

D’ya ever wonder what it was like to be on a Texas Homestead?  I thought it would be fun to share… Here each day offers something new.  Some days we’re focused on land maintenance like mowing pastures or repairing fences.  Other days we might focus on bees, the garden or the cattle.  But this week we had one day in particular that ended up being a very challenging day for us. 

The temps that had once cooled nicely had made a wicked resurgence.  On this day between the heat & humidity it was supposed to feel like sweltering triple digits.  So RancherMan & I decided to work the cattle early in the morning while it’s cooler. That’s when everything went south…

Did you ever wonder what a day on the homestead was like? Join me to see what tasks are on tap at our N.E. Texas Homestead #TexasHomesteader
