Fodder Day 5

Wow! I'm super impressed with todays growth! Unfortunately it's only this wonderful on half the tray :/ The half that has the drain holes and WAS growing mold. I am keeping the trays flat today and hoping the other half will catch up, but isn't this cool :)

My little one had her first softball game last night. The weather was horrible I hid behind an umbrella trying to block the wind, it didn't help much but they won! This was the start of the season tournament play so once I got home and looked at the brackets I realized holy shiz they will be playing all day Saturday :/ Kudos, thanks, and much gratitude to my husband ♥ I am NOT a sports mom. I am a homesteader with a gazillion things to do. One of them is clean out the shed I told you guys about so I can empty my shed and make it into super coop. So today the hubs took the little one to all three of her games while I finished cleaning out the shed. The shed is ready to be moved, my Suburban is packed to the gills with keep sakes and other b.s., and my little ones team got 2nd in the tournament. I hate that I missed the games. My little one is the BEST player on her team and I'm not saying this because she's mine. The winning team even told her how great she was. I guess you can pick the team you want to play on which I think it would be crappy not to play with the girls you go to school with but the hubs thinks the winning team will try to get my child by next year. They are 8, lol!

After the shed was clean I came home and felt like I was gonna lose it. We have been so busy these last few days I haven't went to the store, cooked dinner, taken care of my critters the way I like, or cleaned house. I've actually ate McDonalds the last two days and normally I don't eat that crap twice a year. Anyways, even though I'm losing it tonight I'm going to get it together by tomorrow and get to the ding dang store and make cooking for my family a priority. We have games every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for the next several weeks. I regret signing her up but she loves it. I just need to get it together, provide meals for my family and make it to the games. Okay rant over! Have a great weekend ya'll

    1. Now that you say that. I did take the other pictures in the morning and this was in the evening so it's more like day 5 1/2 :)

  2. Kelly,

    Congrats on your little one's game and winning. She has to be smiling from ear to ear.

    I so hear you with having a lot to do and trying to take care of the family too. When I make meals, I try to make extra (like double the meal) this way we eat, and I freeze the same meal for another day in those throw away foil pans. This always helps me when I'm busy working or exhausted, I just pull the meal out of the freezer and throw it in the oven to heat up.

    1. Great idea Sandy. I don't have a lot of freezer space these days because I butchered all of those roosters. Maybe I could squeeze 1 emergency meal in there and eat up some of the chicken to make room for more ;)

  3. I hear ya on the baseball front. Cole is playing Little League for the "Northern All Stars" who just happen to be our local league. They also happen to have been to/ won the World Series a couple times in the last several years. These people are serious about their baseball. Me? I'm serious about milking my goats and locking up the chickens before 10pm.

    Now get cooking! No more fake food for your fam!

    1. That's my issue, I'm all for my kids doing things, I'm just not that into it. Luckily the hubs is :)
      Not feeding my family and forcing them to eat CRAP was bugging me. So far so good today, and I'm about to head to the store :)

  5. Kelly , I feel you on being busy. You know LN is busy with 2 teams of soccer and 4-h and FFA. I try to go to each game so eating home made is non exsistant some nights. I try to pack food and hit stuff in thermos also. She loves it. Keep your chin up. They are only young once Momma.
