Despite the cancellation, life on the farm goes on. We are in the midst of our annual chick hatching with several chicks in our brooder and in our grow out pens. We still have more on the way in our incubators. Only a few of the hens are still laying those big green eggs, so we are coming to the end of the laying season and are hoping to get at least one more tray of eggs into our incubator. The hatch is looking good so we should have a good group of chicks this year. We are,of course, repairing pens, getting the garden ready, and continuing a never ending battle, with the cows to keep them from escaping. In addition, Emily and I have been roaming about looking for herbs and medicinal plants and if you follow us on facebook you know how excited we were to find stinging nettle that we have dried for tea!
