This week we have pictures of many, many plants and animals: cactus flowers, tree flowers, birds, bunnies, and a sunset. We haven't done very much on the homestead this week, but it certainly has given back to us in the form of beautiful things.
We had beautiful weather this week. According to local meteorologists we should have had 90 degree weather already. Instead, we mostly were in the low 80s. That is perfect for going outside and exploring the desert plants that are part of our homestead.
This week we finally got a little rain on the homestead. It should help the garden and native desert plants grow. I was also able to get a little work done on our kids' playground equipment.

This Week on the Homestead. 01/12/20 - 01/18/20. Our weekly diary post of the happenings around our home.
This has been quite the busy week. In addition to Christmas, our two youngest children had birthdays this week. That makes for a lot of cake, cookies and presents.
We had a few storms come through this week. According to our rain gauge we had around .9 inches of rain this week. We even had some lighter rain which is good because it doesn’t all run off down our road.
The prior owners had a bird feeder and a platform for a quail block. This week I finally put food there to see if we could attract any birds.(more…)
