It is hard to believe it is August already. We are about to plant our fall crops and we haven’t even harvested tomatoes yet! All is well on the farm. Doing a lot of harvesting and marketing and upkeep.
We received 50 broiler chicks on Friday. They were all alive and in good health. This should be an interesting experiment. I’ll put up pictures soon. We have yet to build the chicken tractor, but Josh and Katherine should be working on that this week. The chicks will go out on pasture at two weeks old. We are a bit worried about our resident raccoon population, but we’ve got some ideas.
Here’s a picture from some of our harvest on Wednesday. I was pulling this up the driveway from the garden and it just looked so summery with the calendula blossoms (which people have been loving at the market) and sunflowers.
