This is our "farm House." We bought a reconditioned small motorhome where we can sleep over, get out of the rain and get warm in the winter, and get cool in the summer. We have what amounts to a full hookup at the farm. AND, we can use it to travel when we want. We're really enjoying it.
We have 24 hens of at least six varieties. All are brown egg layers. They have a nice new hen house with plenty of room and a 40x40 ft pen in which to roam. They seem to be extremely happy to be outside and able to take dust baths, eat grass, and chase each other.
June 9, 2011 -- The garden is mostly in for this year. Strawberries, shell beans, summer and winter squash, pumpkins, lots of green beans, corn, onions, shallots, garlic, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, leeks, fennel, and more that I can't think of right now.
The weeds are also doing great. This weekend we need to do lots of weeding and then mulch with last year's dried grass to help control weeds and conserve moisture.
