This Year Couldn’t Be Doing Much Better

I weeded 15 beds today and Zina set out cleaning pens and coops and feeding.  We found a farm sitter we can use when we are in a pinch and she is coming out on Sunday to see things.  She is studying to be a Vet Tech which is a bonus feature for us.

This year’s growing season couldn’t be doing much better.

Our little girl, Ginger, appears to be with child.  Kidding can happen anytime on or after August 23.  Zina is going to need a sedative.

All the brooders are empty.  But we are expecting a turkey hatch to begin tomorrow!

Tank and Dozer

The bucks are rutting.  They are stinky and fighting.  Tank, the black one, got his bell rung pretty good yesterday.  Almost took him to the vet but he seems to have come back as a contender.

Donavan and Julio

The Stoic Farm gurus.  You will never meet a calmer gentler soul than an old donkey.

The layers and his highness

We have toooo many layers.  We’ve been getting 2 dozen eggs a day and have been giving loads of them to the food bank.

Some of the beds.  All freshly weeded out.

Feeling vindicated after the collapse from last year’s drought.  We appear to have this wired.  We put the green in Greenhouse.
