Green tomato rescue….

Another lesson learned the hard way. Who knew chickens loved tomatoes? The hens spent weeks strolling the garden, only eating the bugs. It was great. Natural bug control! Then…..one day……I found this: Couldn’t see deer tracks, so blamed the bunny rabbits.  I grieved a bit. Last time I planted a salsa garden in the community […]

Duckling starter feed, set up the warming area and heat lamp and spread out the clean bedding. Our first “official” farm stock so it’s pretty exciting!  When our kids were little, we read a LOT […]
