Here are the rest of our photos from May!
Esther made peanut butter one evening, from 5 kg of peanuts, and forgot to put salt in one lot of it. She put it all in a big bowl to stir the salt in, and was pretty amazed at how that much peanut butter looks. We normally put it in 2-litre buckets as we make each batch in the food processor, so we don’t see it like this.
We had a hailstorm one afternoon. The younger children were thrilled and ran outside to play in the ice that was coming out of the sky.
They scraped up some hail from the trailer bed and brought it in to show me!
James and Princess, enjoying the warmth from the fire. That’s one spoiled cat.
We killed a beef the end of the month, and Esther and I spent three days cutting it up. Lots of meat! This was everything from the two hindquarters, which we mostly made into roasts and steaks. We saved all the bones to make into broth, and all the fat, to render into tallow. We enjoy doing the work ourselves and being able to use everything.
Little sister, delighted to be joining her big brothers for breakfast; they usually leave before she gets up in the morning.
Miss Joy helped her daddy mow lawn one afternoon!
Here’s a quick video of her:
