True Blue Potatoes
I need to dig up the last four row of potatoes, and the rest of the volunteers next to the lettuce patch, and then I'll have all suds harvested for the year. I should have enough to see my customers through the rest of the season getting potatoes in their boxes weekly.
My hens won't stop with the broodiness, and I've given up fighting them. After all, what's a few more chicks, and they are sure happy being moms. These hatched a few weeks ago and are doing great!

That's one long name for a kitten! We had a hard time coming up with a name everyone agreed on, until in a fit of weary silliness we all decided this name was good enough!
Where did this kitten come from? Little J's friend's cat had a batch and we couldn't resist. Since we want her to live to a ripe old age and not disappear like Totoro did in June, we've decided she'll be an indoor only kitty.
the pigeons are back!
Every year we get pigeons who migrate through just when the Cascara berries are ripe. I love hearing their heavy fluttering and seeing them come an go in droves.
Do you think our lawn will grow in time for our Labor Day picnic?
We decided to invest in a tractor to help with the place, and the farm business. Right here where the tractor is parked, you can see the beginnings of an earthen green house, or Walipini.
