I thought you might like to see what things are looking like around The Little Farm these days. You're only going to see the outside of the Farm...inside the farmhouse is, well, a bit messy.
Here's the garden and new chicken spread. In the foreground, is the blooming cherry tree. Next is the garden and the bright green spot beyond that is the chicken tractor.
Another look at the garden. The house is in the back.
We just moved the chicken coop to it's new spot and Farmer Ron made a yard for them out of a roll of chicken wire. We needed to get them out of the garden for a while because we planted seeds (lettuces, spinach, chard and other greens) today and they would tear the ground to pieces.
The gals enjoying their new digs. We are getting 4 eggs a day, for the most part. Today we cracked open our first double yolker.
There are even green things poking up in the garden: rhubarb, raspberry bushes and sugar snap peas!
Isn't it exciting? I know some of you live in places where you've already been eating food from your garden...you'll just have to indulge me and my enthusiasm. I can't wait to eat some greens and peas!
Farmer Ron and Zach, our Little Farmer, spent some time getting a few more plots ready for our tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings. I'll keep you posted!
