First, y’all, I want to share with you the happy news: we have baby bunnies! They’re the first critters born here on the farm and I’m so excited about them. They were born early this morning (on my mom’s birthday, no less) and seem to be doing well. I’m waiting for it to warm up a bit outside before I go handle them and get an exact count and some weights, but so far it looks like there’s at least five (two dark like our buck, three light/pink like their mama).
Bev from Our Half Acre Homestead showed two different method for rendering lard: Water Rendering and Old-School Rendering. I was honestly surprised how easy the process was, and how nice the results were!
