apples, peaches?!

it is raining here right now. A nice, steady, low fanfare rain. No lightening, no thunder. zero winds. Just a lovely, soaking, steady rain. The rain that farmers dream of: no damage to vegetable plants or fruit trees, but a lovely drink of water from the sky for all of these thirsty plants.

This photo shows the apple trees (planted by previous owner) and some of the chicken pens. The pens are crossing the field behind the hoop house, so the birds are back there hunting for those pesky bugs that will eat an apple crop if left unchecked. We get beautiful apples, the birds get a little extra protein, no sprays happen..we love this!
