Hello sweet ladies,
It has been brought to my attention that the type on my posts has been small. I AM SO SORRY! When I put up my post I sometimes use a font that was different then what blogger gives. I wanted my blog to be unique to me. Sorry, but I didn't know that it wasn't looking the same for you, what it looked like for me. I don't want it to be so tiny for you to have to try to read. Thank you for your understanding and thank you to the one who let me know! I love you bunches!
Mrs. Red and her babies
I haven't shown you the newest babies yet. With all the celebration of getting ready for the 4th, Tressa's graduation and all, I forgot. Mrs. Red is the proud Momma of 4. She had a few bad eggs and the others were not fertile, but we are very happy with our new flock of chickens that will be wonderful for new eggs. I haven't counted how many the momma's have hatched this year, but it will be nice!
They are the sweetest little babies.
She is teaching them to scratch for their food. She has been getting a little rough though. Sometimes they go a flying, if they are under her feet. Yesterday I put her in time out, outside for a little while to give the babies a rest.
Remember the little duck named Jack that was born premature, because we thought it was a bad egg and I let my grandson throw it (story here). It ended up having a live baby duck inside?
Well, now they look like this. The one on the right is Bartholomew and the one on the left is Little Jack. They are so adorable when they are little and then when they start growing up they get a little homely. When they are full grown they get beautiful!
Flowers mean potatoes!
Today we are going to be make a meal for a family in our church. The Momma is pregant and has a foot broken in 3 places. Their family went on a family trip and she fell. It has been very hard on them, so we wanted to help out a little. Last week we called and told them that we wanted to fix a meal just for she and the Mr. It was going to be a surprise meal and we would bring everything to set it up. We also said we would take their son for the evening. We are all excited. I went to go get the potatoes in the garden this morning. They are best, when they are little and brand new!
I took a pail filled with water and a strainer. This way I clean the potatoes when I am in the garden and don't have to mess up the kitchen with the dirt. Our Taylor will be making her famous new potatoes with garlic, butter and a little bit of herbs. They are so NUMMY!
Thought you would like to see what our son harvested on his land. It was beautiful hay this year! This is all my grandkids except for one that couldn't be there. Love this pic!
The Lord has filled our quiver!!!!!
Well, we are off today to go see about building another fence this morning. Remember the fence we built a few weeks back? The family loved it. That was nice and they want another one!!!!!
There is a very sweet lady that follows our blog that prays for work for us. Well, the Lord is listening to her and we are so grateful for those of you who pray for us in this transition in our life, after farming for 30 plus years. Thank you for those of you who pray for our family. I am still praying for you!
WELCOME TO ALL THE NEW FOLLOWERS! YOU ARE NOTICED!
Blessings from the farm,
