tomato..or 3!

They're small, they're green and there are more than 1! Our first tomatoes are growing! Glacier variety, here is what we hear about them..
"This is not the best market variety because the fruits all look imperfect. That said, the value of this variety for home growing should not be overlooked. These heavy yielding plants produce great tomatoes with real tomato flavor for salads or slicing. Your kids will eat them once they are cut." -Cricket Rakita

We tested our cool new, all stainless steel processing equipment last night. So now we will have chicken every day..from now until early November.

And yes, I still have a kitchen that needs updating, but have the coolest processing equipment on the block! ok, it is the only processing equipment and there isn't really a block..

clearing walk ways

Our laying hens are constant foragers..hard at it the entire day. They do stop and rest during the hottest part of the day..and then back at it again!

Today they are in the garden, clearing the walkways between the garden beds. After they work this they will head back to under the fruit trees, clearing and fertilizing the ground around what is shaping up to be a good fruit crop. And then the most delicious eggs!

June 1 2010

Oh my has it gotten busy! As of today we have 1,000 poultry on the farm, 10 head of cattle, 3 pigs, an assortment of waterfowl and almost an acre of vegetables to weed, water and pick. Not much time to write, or think, these days!

and last night these appeared in our front yard..Homer herded them back home and closed the gate..owners not home, livestock always gets out when that happens!
