We celebrated Matthew’s birthday early this year since he is going to be in Alaska over his birthday.
Matthew, he is our handyman. If something brakes while he is gone, I don’t know what we are going to do.
Happy 16th Matthew!
We have picked up our next batch of chicks.
These are a new breed of broilers that we are trying. They are called Rainbow Rangers. They grow slower than the regular broilers and are more active foragers, which is very appealing to us, knowing they will consume more greens and bugs than the standard white broilers. We hope that they work out and are cost effective.
Look no wings!
And this is one of the regular broilers. They are so tiny. I took these photos when this chick was 3 days old.
We had a Carolina Wren’s nest in Dad’s shop and I got to get some pictures of the precious fledglings when they left the nest.
The ever watchful parent. His mouth is open because he is yelling at me. He’s probably trying to figure out what this creature is with the weird contraption by its head.
This is one of the babies.
The garden is doing well; we harvested some skapes and kale.
Peas are doing great, and cucumbers are up! The thought of fresh cucumbers makes my mouth water.
One bigger thing that happened recently on the farm was that we took down our Maple tree in front of the house.
Here it is.
Here it isn’t.
Two reasons for removing the tree: First, it was damaging this pine tree. Second, and most importantly, it was damaging the house.
Some random sheep photos.
This ewe gave us one of our most beautiful fleeces this year
Rania’s ram lamb. My little photogenic boy.
You can tell they were just moved to new pasture; all their heads are to the ground
Josephina’s ram lamb.
Enjoying the apple tree.
