Our new girls Molly and Whitney arrived a day early which was just fine. In fact really good!
Their room was ready and waiting and while I did the chores Fede made dinner to eat under the trees.
The girls drove from Kentucky where they stayed on a farm where they were picking cherries. We are lucky to be picking kale! Though I think our slow spring is good for the plants.
Naomi has found the Baby Boot.
The goats have a new water barrel with a float in the top attached by a piece of hose to a blue rainwater tank that collects rain off the roof of the shed. So it will automatically refill. It works like a charm. Now that the plan is proven to work we will proceed with two more.
Jake’s chicken tractor has arrived and it is huge. There will be no crowding in this pen. I am calling it The Enterprise. Naturally John is appalled. Today the girls will help Fede finish it, then they will transfer the Accident chickens (who look to be all hens) in for the summer. Followed closely by the Easter chickens and once we have ironed out any kinks I will bring in the meat birds. I need the Meat birds to get a tiny bit bigger first. Hopefully there will not be a war.
It is Memorial Day here so we will have a lovely lunch outside with The Matriarch.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Love your friend on the farm,
