Pics from RanchFest

This was taken after all the women came back from  town to check out some flea markets and thrift stores.  There are a few missing as they continued to do some shopping.

Hanging out at the book shelf.

Susan Sifford and Michelle Shelton  taking some time to get to know each other.

Ranch fest lunch is always a time of fun and laughter.

Lunch was over but we continued to talk and get to know our visitors better. The man in the blue shirt came all the way from Norway!

Mrs. Sustaire’s youngest pointing to her nose. She has learned a lot of words.

Another of Mrs. Sustaire’s daughters playing peek a boo with the camera.

The men working on the smoke house. It is very close to completion.

Mr. Woods working on the new bunkhouse… looking great!

Ranchfest was a great time of fellowship and learning. We look forward to the next one and Lord willing seeing all those who came again!

I also took these two pics.

    Hello Deblyn,

    Thanks for the pictures of all the folks, and projects being worked on at Ranchfest. It’s a delight to see all your smiling faces. The ladies faces look “sunshiney”. I pray you all had a blessed week of fellowship. Besides all the meal preps, were there any special projects you ladies worked on together? Please greet all there for me. Thanks.

    We’re having a cold streak right now; with potential for frost overnight. Up north, our land got 1 inch of snow yesterday! Otherwise, it’s ranged from unseasonably warm to normal temps. since early March. Many things have bloomed early (apples, plums, etc.). Just enjoyed fresh Asparagus today at our noon meal. Have frozen 3 batches of that, plus a few pickings of Rhubarb so far. Plan to dry and smoke Turkey jerky in the next few days. We bought an outdoor ceramic grill/cooker/smoker. It works wonderfully to retain moisture in roasted meats and efficiently uses natural charcoal. Plan to smoke the Jerky on that, using indirect heat with the stone inserts and upper grills. I haven’t looked at the specifics about dehydrating on it; but am quite sure I can dry on it as well. If not I’ll transfer the smoked meat to my oven to finish the drying process.

    I have several tomato and pepper plants started, as well as melons and herbs. Bought my brassica family plants yesterday; but will wait to plant any until mid May. They say our frostfree plant date is April 30th, but I’ve waited until May 15th the last several years with a better result.

    Keeping you both in prayer for sufficient work and blessed crops as you plant your gardens. That was a nice sized pig you butchered and canned. Good work!

    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing…

    I wonder if maybe I can get down your way sometime this year…how far is the community from Dallas Texas? Would love to just stop in for a visit. 🙂

      Hi Dawn, It would be great to finally meet you. I don’t think it is that far. Maybe a little over 2 hrs. Please let me know and maybe we could do lunch in one of our little towns close by. You could meet the other people in our community and see how we live… come on down…
