Getting There.

Lots going on right now. We have had enough egg customers that we ran out of the cartons that our friends and family had saved for us. A quick visit to and we were in business. (We might have accidentally also ordered 25 more chickens )

And speaking of Business, I give you.....

It might be a little premature, only having one product (eggs), but we got a good deal on them.
We also got the first part of shipment of garden fodder.

Raspberries, Blackberries, horseradish, asparagus, salad greens, and herb seeds.
In the upper right hand corner on the box you will notice a packet without a picture.

Now I know raising chickens ( and a goat come May) , having a huge garden , and wanting bees in the middle of the city seems a little loony.

That little packet might be crossing the line into insane.

We had a volunteer pumpkin come up last year and let it sprawl in the backyard just for fun. we got 2 pumpkins out of the deal and the chickens enjoyed the shade from the leaves. You might notice the possible weight of the pumpkin variety we are growing this year. Enter the spousal patience part of this endeavor.
Now if it will just quit snowing we can get this party started.
