** UPDATE **
The chick is doing much better. She is eating, drinking, peeping, and scratching.
I believe she was just thoroughly cold.
She is in a room with a heater set very low.
She really perked up with that overnight.

Life gives you things you don't expect.

Today one of our wonderful customers gave me this Christmas necklace. She made it. I love it! ❤️ ❤️

Also today I had to separate the littlest chick from flock.
She is now in Klahs hospital. Hope I can nurse her back to health.

Always use a meat thermometer (I love this model from Pampered Chef that I got from a friend) to check for doneness ~165°F.

We have been busy little painters this week.
After several years, the farm sign is back up on the pole.
I think we should be good with that for the duration.

Never painted a gas tank before, either.


Would love some pumpkins for my girls. Must not be rotting/rotted.

The majority of customers who begin shopping for food at a Farmers' Market know little to nothing about farming. Markets offer a chance for urban and rural communities to meet and educate each other on sustainable lifestyles. By offering a space for the interaction between farmer and customer, markets hold the pulse on the local food system in our areas.
