One morning I was scything down the thistle in a corner of the pasture our calves are on right now, and I saw some feathers. I put down the scythe and had a closer look. What I thought was a dead chicken was a nesting hen. I saw she had multiple eggs under her and I put the scythe away for the day. A week later, Harbor spotted broken eggs and we are proud to say that she has hatched out 6 baby chicks!
We had the perfect window of clear weather for our annual Open Farm Day this past Sunday. Many cars of people and families came up the driveway and took part in tours, spinning demos, and horse drawn wagon rides. Our guests even got to sample our various preserves, tomatillo salsa, carrots, and the first of the peas!
We will be hosting a MOFGA farm training workshop this Wednesday (June 20) at 5pm. The topic is Farming with Horses and there will be a potluck following a 1-2 hour talk/demo.
Bill took Andy, Star, and the wagon to Prospect Harbor for the memorial day parade. Sounds like he had a full load.
