A friend asked me yesterday why I haven't posted anything in a long time, and it's because I have been relentlessly working on getting the farm running in time for Jon to finish law school. He will indeed be DONE with law school forever tonight at 6 PM CST, and arriving home tomorrow at one.
We had our fair share of up's-and-downs the entire time and after all his hard work I am so proud of him. We have a few weeks to get our farmstand built before we fly to Missouri for his long-awaited graduation ceremony and he starts his new career that following Monday.
Vegetables and fruit are going into the ground, soil is being tilled, goats are milking, the rooster is crowing and we have been overrun with chickens! We have Americauna's hatching left and right. We plan to use the Americauna's for the pretty blue eggs and the other birds will give us home-grown meat, and we will sell the rest.
Recipes will be coming soon, as will the website for our farm. I would love to post more, but I have 100 chicks hatching tomorrow and need to pick up Jon at the airport at 1.
When I find time to breathe I will surely come up to catch my breath and post more. In the meantime, please enjoy the photos. Bandit is the gorgeous new addition to our family. He is the pretty boy with the half-blue eye and although we fell in love with him, so did Bella, you can almost see the twinkle of love in her eyes.
