"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Farm Life

New project on the farm...
We are building a coop inside one of the sheep pens. It will have the nesting boxes and a feeder that is under the house that the sheep will not get to.

We had to clear some mesquite~kind of wish pennies would drop from the sky every time we have to clear mesquite!

Love the farm wagon! It is a wonderful tool to help haul materials to project sites, as well as hauling away mesquite.
Here is Fourth pounding away on the new coop. Samson is in from of her and Delilah is on the right.

The materials for this coop are repurposed from other projects or salvaging that we have done on the farm.
Fourth is a very hard worker and a great asset to the farm.

When I watered the garden I noticed a scallop squash twin!! So cute!

And to continue with my previous post on recipes for Yellow Squash-
Squash Soup

Begin with 2 yellow squash
1 zucchini all washed and cut up
some frozen peas
frozen carrots
shredded chicken
some onion
a few cloves of garlic minced
a few stalks of celery washed and cut up
a bay leaf
one can of tomato sauce
Cook on stovetop on medium high for 20 or so minutes. Serve and enjoy. This recipe is a winner even in the summer. The soup is so tasty and everyone always has seconds.

The challenge will continue on~ so stay tuned(or run away!)
