Newest Additions

Keegan, Liam, and I went and picked out some new babies this afternoon. We didn't add any new hens to the flock last year because I had my hands full already. I waited too long to order any and have them come before summer so I got some straight run babies at the feed store. They are a mixture of breeds but at least some are Welsummers, Easter Eggers, Cherry Eggers, and at least 1 silky judging from its feet. The ducks were just so darn cute I couldn't resist bringing a couple of those home too. I also placed an order for 25 cornish broilers to be delivered in a couple weeks. I've never raised them before. We'll see how that goes.

 Liam loves them so much!


He also loves flowers.

And pigs! These fellas are getting HUGE!

Liam loves the chickens too, and he wants to love the turkeys but mommy won't let him get close enough.

The blueberry plants are getting buds all over and will soon be covered in bell shaped blooms and filled with buzzing bees.

And hopefully our strawberry patch will also be filled with blooms. At least it isn't still filled with weeds. Thankful for the little things.

    1. So glad to share a happy heart! Spring is such a joyful time, especially on a farm surging with new life (in my humble opinion).
