I hope you can tell in the pictures how foggy it was here. Everything is thawing out and the pond is the fullest Neal and I have ever seen it. The chickens are still little babies about going out in the yard because of the snow. I'm hoping once it is all melted they will go search for worms and such again. We may get some younger chickens this summer when they can forage for a greater percentage of their own food. We want to snag some chickens on free cycle or Craigslist from the type of folks that are moving, decide they don't want chickens anymore, etc. hehe.
|Black Walnut Sap|
|Collected in milk jugs that our friends at Casa saved for us|
|The brew kettle gets a new use in storing sap|
|This sweet find allowed us to store about 30 gallons of maple sap|
|Neal worked heroically through the weekend of rain and fog to fix the potting shed. |
Joanie and Kevin were nice enough to help with the finishing touches.
|Huge maple tree by the chicken yard in the fog|
|Same tree, different view|
|You can barely see the trees through the fog... so cool!|
