here we go!

Wow!  It has been since November since I last wrote on my blog.  I have had a few friends and family asking me if I was going to start blogging again.  So, I decided it was time to get back to it.  Life has been busy for us here on the farm.  I will put up pictures on my next blog post.  We have lots of new things going on here.  We built raised beds for our vegetable garden and created a path area to get to it with a blend of vegetables, herbs and flowers throughout.  It is growing great and I love it. 

We also have a lot of new animals. We lost our Sammy (wiener dog) this Spring by getting run over by a car.  That was a very tragic day for me and I still miss him.  However, we adopted a two year old wiener dog named Roxy and she looks so much like Sam.  Then about two months ago we got a standard poodle and we named him Gus.  He is a riot and we all just love him.  This Spring we also got three Alpacas and they enjoy the pasture all day and night.  We got new chickens as well, 25 to be exact.  We will eat some of them and keep some for egg laying.  Last and least we got ducks and geese.  The ducks actually I like, they are pretty neat.  However, the geese are gross, annoying and so messy.  We are likely going to have goose for dinner here soon. 

Well, I am excited to be back to my blog and look forward to writing about the weekly adventures of Danforth Farm.  Cheers!
