Closed for the season?!


So it's been since July that I last made an entry.....

I sorta feel like a bad friend to my blog.
We haven't gone out for coffee together.
I haven't asked how blog is doing.
Haven't even checked in.

The blog, and our friendship together was closed for the season.

But it's been busy.

A non stop of people here.

There is not much room for quiet time

But this is what we signed up for.

Our season is starting to wind down.  The farm stand has gone a bit better that anticipated, and we have come closer to breaking even than expected.  Since October is a stones throw away, we are going to start concentrating on pumpkins, and fall favorites.

Our chickens are well.  We have gotten plenty more.  Out of the fifty something we have about twenty five are laying.  The ones we got waaaay back in spring have been a disappointment.  They are still not quite at laying age.  And now are in molt.  What an unexpected amount of money you have to put into feeding hens that are not paying for themselves. .....but this is part of the learning process.

We have gotten two more roo's.  A buff, and an Americana Wheaton.  Lovely,  lovely,  boys.

The ducks.  Are awesome.

And in being so awesome our farm took an unexpected turn in direction.

We are now a duck farm


We got a shipment of fifty something in the mail today
(Ya, you can get ducks in the mail!?)

So....while the lil gals (all gals) peep outside my porch window, and our lil baby girl is sleeping, I finally decided to catch up with my ol friend, blog.

It's been awhile.

But it's good to be back:)
