30 April 2014 – Farm Report

I’m back after a brief absence to marry off my daughter.  🙂  Such a sweet wedding.  Ah.  …   It’s a bit cool on the farm this morning but still a nice day.  We’ve had […]

The hummingbirds are having such a difficult time at the feeder today.  The wind is blowing so hard that they aren’t able to hover and the feeder is moving around.  Ever once in a bit, […]

15 April 2014 – Farm Report

We survived the freeze and woke up to 26 degrees this morning. Some of the plants have been damaged. So much has still not sprouted (and probably wont) but I’m hoping things will still turn […]
