Thank you for the delicious fresh eggs & free delivery!

Operating as usual

Don’t let yourself get discouraged. Try out different methods and don’t be afraid of losing some plants :)

Such a great arrangement to display the range of colors that chickens can produce.

So, are children considered perennial then? They definitely keep growing year after year but way to fast! They’re kind of like weeds but cuter 🤔

I've been playing catch up around here lately.
After horribly neglecting the farm for close to TWO WEEKS, I'm still finding reasons to feel good about the status of things :)

DISCOVERY:

#1 When I pushed down the grass and weeds that surrounded my pepper and tomato plants, all of the plants looked green and healthy, most with peppers or blossoms on them!

#2 We discovered that momma chickens do indeed give
piggy-back rides to their babies :)

#3 Some tomatoes get MUCH bigger than others do :)

#4 I finally figured out why they call them SUN Flowers :)

#5 I can fit exactly 6 crates in the tractor bucket :0

#6 I think I heard one of the hens crowing like a rooster, and I did not see that in any of those intruction manuals for chickens :)

#7 Tomatoes

#8 Tomatoes :)
