Fall at the Farm

Okay, farming is a hell of a lot of work! No time to talk...but here is an update!
Halloween, Pumpkins on Pikes...OMG it was fabulous...see the website for the video at the bottom of the front page...it was amazing....plan for it next year the night before Halloween!

Turkeys came next...it was crazy...turkey's weight so much more than chickens..I tore a ligament in my hand from lifting the big Toms....the feed back was overwhelmingly fabulous on the flavor...

5 new baby pigs born the day after Thanksgiving. They look just like little puppies except for the flat nose and the 500lb mom that feeds them....

The weather is 25 degrees and cold....nobody told me that cement walls for an office would hold the cold...let's face it, I am a city girl and freezing to death but I am still here and about to put up some insulation for the chick brooder. New chicks on Friday and it is way too cold to keep them without some upgrading.

All else is coming along...love having Auntie liz cooking breakfast and dinner. The lack of any heat in the old house is only a nusance really...sort of...well it is really a complete drag in the morning....2 cats, a dog, blankets and slippers and I am still cold....have to work in a handy man to fix the furnace! No time...

Pictures to follow.....
