We reap what we sow!

It brings us great joy to start something from the beginning and see the finished product. As far as birds go, we have seen one batch begin as babies in the brooders, taken care of them for life, and then they fed us. What an amazing process. Here are some pictures of other things we are looking forward to this fall (or now). Saffron is especially excited because she will be able to eat real food by then! Tomatoes, peppers, corn, broccoli, onions, fresh herbs, eggs, and chicken...and in one of the pictures you can see our nice compost rotting away.

We just got 3 orders of new baby chicks in. These chicks are actually called turkens or naked necks. I think they look like little people with wigs on. They are doing well and we hear they are more of a delicacy in terms of flavor. We can't wait to find out.

And we'll close this entry with a very nice picture of a flower and a flower girl.
