Today is Friday. We have electives most of the day. The video above is our folk dance class. While they were dancing, the survival class students were making cordage out of ragweed. They learned a couple weeks ago that century plants are not good plants to work with when making cord.
Count Chickula hatched here almost 2 weeks ago. Today we brought home 3 little lady hen chicks to keep him company. Sadly our duck Cheetah, the duckling that hatched here on October 1st, is still an only child, but she moved outside to the barnyard this morning.
Our big hens have a new coop. They have just moved in this week and are very happy about the larger accommodations. Maybelline and the goats feel right at home going in to borrow a mouthful of hay throughout the day.
Students in the photography class chose to focus their lenses on the barnyard this morning. These are the two goats that have been hanging out with our visiting billy goat, Little Dude, who goes home tomorrow. We hope to have kids in March.
Our apothecary class just finished harvesting goldenrod on campus and making tincture. It is good for canker sores, allergies, eczema, arthritis, colds and flatulence.
Sewing class is finishing up ghost puppets today.
This is just about Friday. Soon I will report on our CSA. We have sent home CSA buckets 2 times so far this season. All this and reading, writing, arithmetic. What could be finer?
