DJ and Joel began putting the fencing on all the posts this weekend! It looks great. We see the end in sight. Can't wait to get the animals in the new pasture for the summer. I wish we had a run-in though. We ran out of money for building materials. We'll see how things go. We really will need something.
The chickens are growing fast. One of our broody hens sat on a pile of about 20 eggs for 3 weeks, and only one hatched, but is it ever cute! We named it "Baby." It's yellow with gray tipped wings.
The ducks are getting big and Joel promised to help me build some type of outdoor coop for them this Wednesday. We have to get them outside the garage. They need grass bad. They smell!
Had a great fieldtrip here for the Moneta co-op on Friday. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I took them over more of the farm and added a scavenger hunt. It was fun. This coming Sunday we have a couple I met from the Dept. of Agriculture coming to take a tour and then in August we have a tour bus coming from the Parks and Rec. Department.
I planted more onions this weekend, and put in the first tomatoes and peppers since it's going to be warm now. We also were able to get about 100 more shitake mushroom plugs into some wood. DJ cut the rest of the oak so in 2 weeks we can finsih the plugs. I can probably get the first logs outside this week too if there's not going to be any more frost. I need to find the perfect place.
Harvesting alot of greens and having a few sales almost every day. This Thursday our market here on the farm opens. We'll be open Thurs., Fri. and Sat. from 9:00 to 5:00. We have some baking to do.....
