Mark has a great relationship with his chickens. They LOVE him and when they are out roaming, they follow him all over the yard. He takes great care of their little home.
This is our spring garden that we are hoping will produce lots of great vegetables to eat throughout the summer months.
We recently butchered our winter pig and these two are the newest smelly members of our family. They should be ready for the butcher shop right before Christmas!
Here are Branden and Donivan's berry plants. There are blackberry, strawberry and raspberry plants.
These are the lucky chickens who get to roam and take care of unwanted bugs. They produce eggs and leave them in the funniest places! Its an egg hunt every day!!!
This is my favorite chicken. I just love her colors. I just want to stuff her and display her in my kitchen! (Mark doesn't think that is such a great idea!)
These are the newest fruit trees. Two apples, two apricots and one plum! BTW - we are picking and canning the peaches this week! Come by and pick yourself some!
This is a new home for these chickens. We have had lots of scorpions in this part of our yard so Mark built a little area and put some of the chickens here to eat them. They squawk all day long because they miss their buddies in the back of the yard BUT they are taking good care of those nasty scorpions!
Our first zucchini of the season with many more to come!
It was an exciting day when we got our first white egg!
Mark LOVES the fact that all of his hard work is finally paying off and the kids come to visit every week and go home with eggs, fruit and someday soon, vegetables!
