Lula , we will miss you.

Today we lost our favorite chicken. I know you aren't supposed to have favorites but she was one of the original 9. She had survived 3 raccoon attacks and was the most affectionate chicken. her favorite place was at your feet as you walked around the yard. Unfortunately this was her undoing. I was building a windbreak in the backyard when the frame collapsed. It fell on Lula, killing her instantly. Harrison and I had a small memorial service and buried her in the corner of the yard.

Anybody still out there?

So , I have been a horribly neglectful blogger of late. I would love to blame it on my off the farm job, or the stuff going on at the farm itself, but the truth is that I haven't made time for it.
 I think my problem was wanting to make my blog just like the ones I love. then I realized That this was My blog and I needed to write what was happening here at our farm.
So, if you want really good references of urban farms check out the bloggroll.
Homegrown Evolution and Novella Carpenter are two of the best. Start from the beginning, it will be worth it.
Now you are probably saying to yourself, self, surrly this means that Phantom Chicken Farms Blog will be back with weekly blogs.  No.  Mrs PCF has done a really good job with the day to day updates on Facebook and  This will become more of a place to post the BIG things that are going on.
In the meantime enjoy my latest online obsession.
