You know those French Angora kits I posted about 30 minutes or so ago? I just went out to check on them again, to find them all still and lifeless. One of two things happened: They overheated She accidentally stomped on them I saw her going in and out of the nestbox before, so it's… Continue reading The Fastest Update I Ever Had
What about this: a tribe of asparagus children, but they're self- conscious about the way their pee smells. Asparagus. With Easter around the corner and everyone posting pictures of their crop coming in, I get a little jealous. And a little mad at myself--if only I had started last year! You see, I love asparagus… Continue reading The Vegetable I Wish We Grew
So, what do you think? I'm still working on getting data into the pages, but would love to hear from you! Do they need more contact forms? Less? Allow for comments on all the pages? Sidebars? I've currently left all pages except the blog here very blank to allow for a "cleaner" look at our… Continue reading New Site!
So many things have happened in the last few days that I don't know where to begin. I will be spending the next week and maybe a little longer finessing some of the pages at the top of this site, and then updating what has changed. It's beautiful and intense.We're always up for it.

It is extremely informative and explains a lot of terms that take some time to learn. In case it's something you want to learn about too, check it out here: Hill Rise Rabbitry's Guide to Evaluating… Continue reading A Post on Evaluating Rabbits
After dealing with work stress (ongoing!) and some health things that needed taken care of , I've been away for too long.

A few things have been going on, as… Continue reading Eat My Eggs, I’ll Eat You
With the few minutes left on this day, I want to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas. I hope it was beautiful and filled with love, regardless of if you celebrated.
I finally understand when people say they are overrun with eggs. The difference? I don't feel too bad about it. I've given away at least 7 dozen by now, and have another few dozen to finish giving out to the neighbors. Eventually, we will sell the eggs (and hatching eggs, and chicks) to offset the… Continue reading A Quick Catch-Up
I have all sorts of pictures of the dying garden (oh, how I miss my squash plants, and the handful of cucumbers I got!), and of my 9 remaining quail. I wanted to tell you about the bushel of apples we picked from our inherited tree (here when we bought the house), or the bushel… Continue reading Time for a Shock
If I had posted last Friday evening, this picture above is what you would have seen. Finally some ripened tomatoes, enough to make sauce. More white scallop squash, my new favorite. Raspberries from the sticks we planted. And our first egg. I've been told the photo makes it look pink, but this is a white… Continue reading Let the eggs roll!
