We are so happy to see peaches on the tree this year. This is our third year since we planted. I'm so happy with this progress.
Although I don't have a photo to share, I have integrated the new hens in with the older hens. Upon entry into the large coop, Sparta charged at them twice, once taking out a hunk of feathers. The older hens could care less. After that, they seem to be getting along. I haven't gone out to see any bloody bodies, so I'm happy with that. I do check on them often just in case.
I'm thinking he was telling those young ladies who was in charge, ha ha!
The heirloom, organic kale we planted last year (which grew back this spring), is going to seed. I'm very excited we'll be able to save seeds from this. It grew very well here.
Although we've had two frost warnings since our lilac was about to bloom (and after blooming), I've been able to bring cuttings into the house. I love the smell.
I do declare. I think the grass is as tall as the goats are right now. They are so happy to be out and about after all this past rain. They run up to me now, and loved to get rubbed and scratched. They are two cuties for sure. We may need a few more if they can't eat all the grass down when they are full grown, ha ha!
Monday it was dry, and very windy. I had high hopes to work outside Tuesday, but woke up to that pitter patter sound (again). I'm so glad I put all the laundry out on Monday. I even washed bed quilts, dog rags (old towels to wipe off wet dogs), and other bedding. My bedroom smelled absolutely wonderful. I love that smell when you bring it all back inside. And it's not affecting me with allergies right now. Farmers are not able to spray, due to wet fields, so it was a perfect time to wash large items.
Tuesday night? More rain.
The thought of peaches this year makes me happy anyway.
