It is mid-January and I have been slowly, and peacefully, planting our winter garden. The biggest struggle right now is keeping the slugs and snails away.
Some pictures from around the farm this summer.
This year we purchased chicks from the Alchemist Farm in Sebastopol. While we have incubated and hatched our own eggs in the past, I wanted to try some of the breeds they raise.
There is a small window of time in the spring when one of our trees is amazingly full of blossoms. I look forward to seeing it’s beauty ever year.
Lucie says, “Yes, I really do want mini-donkey treats!”
We love our mini-donks so. It’s really hard to deny them anything-treats, scratches, and pats... 💗
We took in a rescue duck in May. Of course, he needed friends, so two duck buddies were purchased along with a baby pool. Rescue duck's new buddies still needed a heat source to keep warm, so they all lived in our bathtub for awhile. Now they are all living outside full-time.
Our barn project started this week. This is exciting! Deciding on the look/configuration of the barn and going through the permitting process has taken some time. Here we go!
