Farm Report 18 Apr 2016

Spring rains are here.  The garden and pastures are excited.  🙂  The weeds and grass are soaking up the moisture and inching their way skyward.  Sigh. It has been a busy start to this two thousand and sixteenth year.  The goats basically exploded on us.  What was I thinking?  Oh, right. The asparagus is doing …

Farm Report – March 3, 2016

March third.  Already.  Two thousand sixteen.  How’d that happen?  I may have blinked. Polly and her new baby are doing well.  Peso’s eye is slowly beginning to look better.  I’m thankful that no one else is having a problem.  That indicates that she probably poked something in it.  Rosie and Opal are so rotund.  And. …

Wow, it’s been a long while since I posted anything.  So, lets get to the news… We’ve added an animal to our farm. “Pippin Tom” is our Thanksgiving Turkey. He’s a handsome white boy. I’ve been getting a few cucumbers from the garden (and, yes, it’s about the only thing we are getting.) That means I’ve …

Got up early to go blackberry picking today but noticed the red sky just as dawn was breaking and decided to check the radar.  Yup, rain coming in.  Okay, so now what do I do?  It’s sometimes very tough to change gears after having a plan for the day. The animals are all fine.  The …

Part of this morning was spent working on the vineyard.  We have eight grape vines planted, mulched and watered.  Plus, there is one that might not survive so it has been granted a private space.  This is one of our farm projects. I stopped to see how things were coming with the vineyard and realized …

Overcast and damp on the farm this morning.  Oh, how we need the rain!  Praying that there is no bad storms coming with this.  I was able to transplant 46 sweet potato plants on Saturday.  Along with that I put in 2 beds of onion sets and 1 bed of garlic.  MM and assistants were …

Good mornin’, y’all.  It’s kinda cool this fine morning on the farm.  Maroochy and the Chicklets are getting along real nice.  I turned at one point yesterday and caught one of the Chicklets hitching a ride on mama’s back.  🙂  Even if I’d had a camera, I wouldn’t have been quick enough to catch the …

I’m back after a brief absence to marry off my daughter.  🙂  Such a sweet wedding.  Ah.  …   It’s a bit cool on the farm this morning but still a nice day.  We’ve had a few small showers over the last week but we are so dry.  Maroochy and the chicklets are still in …

It’s overcast and gray on the farm this morning.  Fits my mood pretty good.  Unfortunately, none of the chicks have hatched and the one heard peeping is silent.  Maroochy, the mama hen, is still very protective of the eggs but I think I’m going to have to take them from her.  If the farm store …

YES! We hear baby peeps this morning. Doesn’t look like anyone has broken out of a shell and we can’t see anything under momma’s wings yet but we can hear the faint peeps. Yay! Can’t wait to meet the new chickies. It’s a windy day but I’m gonna get to planting because there’s a chance of …
