It may only be early July, but the weather is acting like mid August. We are really experiencing some unseasonal heat. A great deal of our time is spent keeping the critters comfortable. It seems that if we hose the chickens down a couple of times day, they manage quite well.
The goats are handling the heat pretty well. We do have to keep their water cool enough for them to drink. It seems that they do not like warm water.
We are doing three Farmer’s Markets a week. Tuesday is at Westover Hills Presbyterian Church at Kavanough and McKinley in Little Rock. The Thursday market is at North Hills and Country Club in Sherwood. Saturday is the Argenta’s Farmers Market at 6th and Main in North Little Rock.
We have been very creative this summer. We have made several new products. Our laundry soap and body butter are just a couple of them. We are getting ready to introduce our luffa scrubs. They are designed to help with really tough cleaning or very rough skin.
Our summer project is to redo our floors. We are using reclaimed wood. This means planing and ripping and cutting each board in preparation for laying them. Hopefully this week, we will take out the carpet and start laying our reclaimed wood!
Well, I think we are up to date. Keep cool!
