special delivery


A phone call on Sunday from the post office led to a Sunday drive to pick up our newest farm animals. 80 tiny, cheeping, chicks. All fluffy and yellow except one little bitty brownie. Earlier in the week we acquired some meat chicks, this week's batch are all laying hens.
Lots going on around here. My college buddy, Mel, came to the farm for a visit late last week and helped us trellis our blackberries. She also worked in the greenhouse part of the day, making soil blocks, planting squash, and otherwise learning the tools of the trade. Mel has spent the last year in India and it was such a blessing to spend time with her and look at life through her lens.

This is my buddy's little sister. She seems like she is in for a Leslike adventure.

I love having chickens, you will have so much fun - except when dealing with predators....

We have been having a dry spring until this week or so, at last some rain. Sound like your area has gotten all the rain of the nation.

We're missing you here, herbs and plants are growing. Your cold frame is going well - in fact we'll be taking it down soon to start putting in starts from this year. We're also putting in a very small greenhouse - you'll see pictures of it when it happens. I fell in love with the construction of it - hand made by a man on the south end of the island.

Cheers to you from Lavender Wind Farm.
