Another week down, another week I haven't blogged... a lot has happened and I wanted to make sure my footing was solid again before getting back to the blog. Eddie had a bad spell a few weeks ago, but this miracle boy has made a complete recovery. I know his day will come, but for now, he is still here, still boppin' around like a puppy, and he has more good farm livin' to do.
Reece has continued on his upswing of learning to be in the world, not barking AS MUCH when we go through the gate at the park, getting desensitized a bit with people walking near the car, etc, and of course I am still working with Diamond Jim while he is away at school..... He is doing great and if you'd like more info on how you can adopt him, message me using the form on the right ------------->
Blindie had really been traveling the open spaces around here, and I had to step up my search game in order to keep her safe from nocturnal predators, but thankfully now, she doesn't really move much from the front porch now since she knows she has plenty of food and water there.... Yeah, she makes a mess, but one day she won't and until that day comes, she can do as she pleases. She has nourished us with fresh eggs for years and now is her golden years. Her sister is still fat and happy and has been coming up on the porch to hang as well. It is sweet seeing their bond. Most people who don't pay that much attention to chickens wouldn't guess they could be such characters. Anyway, when these ladies move on over the rainbow bridge, the coop will get a fancy makeover, a fresh coat of colorful paint, and a new flock....
I did end up getting my spinach in the ground for at least a short growing season, and we are eagerly awaiting the fresh crispy leaves of green goodness.
I have been getting a lot done on the work front... plans for a Christmas benefit are in the works, plans for a holiday market here and there, and winter projects for the shop's landscape are beginning....
I know I say this every time, BUT I do actually plan on blogging more especially since the holidays are coming up... I love the "want/ need/ hear/ see (or read)" posts and this time of year, I get to suggest gifts for all in this segment! I am planning on starting each week out with this segment starting tomorrow!
For now, sip your Sunday morning joe and catch up with what me and all the animals have been up to on the farm. As always, Christian will never - or very rarely show up in any post, but he is always here and we just polished off an entire season of a new show we discovered last night. Look for it in the post tomorrow! I am off now to feed the chew crew and then have breakfast at the local diner! Xo!
