We've had lots of BBQ's with family and friends and the fire pit is wonderful to sit and roast marshmallows or make s'mores with Reese's Peanut butter cups. Those are my favorite guilty pleasure, along with German chocolates. Anyways back to the farm chores that are endless this time of year.
We didn't go anywhere for the 4th. Feels like there are days all we do is run! We had s'mores and watched the fire works from our front lawn! It was a clear night and the fireworks are always high and we do live on a hill. We can see 2-3 towns on a good 4th! Yupo that is called a house with a spectacular view!
We have acquired a rooster, much to my dislike of that. He wakes me up at 4am, every morning. I'm ready for rooster soup. He's only going to be here a short time, then one of my brother in laws wants him. Matthew wants to see if we can get some baby chicks. We'll see how the hens cooperate with Mr. Rooster. We locked two hens up with him in our chicken tractor. They are some of our older hens, not the pullets. We traded a frozen chicken that we raised for him. Easy enough, barter!
|Mr. Rooster himself. Not sure what kind he is, anyone know? He's really pretty, but not at 4 am.|
|Some of our green beans. They are doing really well and will be picking them soon enough.|
|Tomatoes. These are the ones we started from seed this spring. They are doing really well and we are so pleased! I hope you can see them.|
|Maggie out in the field. She's getting real big, and we have started drying her off!|
|Just had to put our tractor in here, it's paid for! We paid it off two months early! We are so thankful for that!|
|T.O. wanted to say hello.|
|Our hay field dancing in the wind!|
|Abby says buzz off Mom. She thought I was going to feed her.|
|Our pullets. They should be laying eggs in the next few weeks! These are the only ones I could get. They kept running away from me!|
|See the orange tractor in there with the rake? How cute is that?|
