The journey of a family creating a new life on their new farm.
Thursday, June 9, 2011
This week hasn't been too exciting overall. However, Tuesday proved to be an interesting day. I had Henrietta (one of my hens) out free because she was showing signs of infection. I didn't want her to be around the other chickens and she doesn't like to stray, so I put her out in the yard. Well, I took a shower, go outside and she was missing. Finally, we found her but she was dead. I think my older dog Oliver chased her to death. She was a very spastic chicken and Oliver likes to herd, so needless to say, not a good combination. Now we are down to seven hens. Also, Tuesday I found a mouse in the kitchen. I was able to lure him into the pantry and the mouse trap did the rest. I was so glad I caught him before it was time for bed or I wouldn't have had a very restful sleep.

Our garden is looking good, although, we did loose a tomato plant because of the high winds we have been having. We have a lot of projects that are unfinished and it is time to start getting them done. My husband and I both feel a bit frustrated lately, but finishing up loose ends I know will help. I love to sit outside and enjoy our views and that puts things back in perspective. It is worth it, through the headaches, because I love our land. Well, have a great day everyone. Cheers.
