Believe it or not, this post has been 8 days in the making! So I'll get it out of the way so I can start catching you up on the rest and get this site done!I've been trying to work less, exercise more, eat better. We've been selling some rabbits, slowly going down the waiting… Continue reading Watermelon Gazpacho
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
We have so many rabbit kits right now, I feel like I'm swimming in them. The first round of Silver Fox and American kits are of age now that I can start sexing, tattooing, and calling their future owners. Because of the wonderful Silver Fox stock we got (when we bought Whitmore Farm's rabbitry), we… Continue reading Silver Foxes and Americans Galore!
A post coming tonight or tomorrow on the duck brooder--I want to get a good before and after picture of those messy ducklings! Part of why I didn't post is because on Friday morning, we had a dog attack our rabbits. With quarantine and the herd we have right now, our rabbits are set up… Continue reading When Predators Attack
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!

It was 3 degrees when I woke up this morning, which is usually unheard of in this area--at least… Continue reading Chilling Cold
Originally, I was going to post about my pumpkins or a full post on our new rabbit hutch system in all its glory. Then, something crazy happened today. It turns out, you're never too old for surprises. So, instead, I've decided to give you an update on the animals you haven't seen since they were… Continue reading Critter Update
It's over 90 degrees here. The bees are so hot they're bearding across the front and sides of their hive, and reaching to the back. One hive is strong--the other I don't think will make it to winter, let alone through winter. I was proud of how well our garden was growing until I saw… Continue reading Update with Pictures
I have a few posts pending, one especially on hatching eggs, but what's more appropriate for a 20th "benchmark" post than some pictures of the newest additions? These are my 9 wheaten/blue wheaten ameraucana chicks. I had 9 out of the 24 eggs I bought hatch, but more on that in my hatching post (later… Continue reading 20th Post: New Additions!
I'm trying to post and get dressed and get things done all in time to make a cake tasting at 11am. Not much is getting done, I'll tell you that. I want to post about the chickens, and the garden, and the fact that holy crap, I can grow things! But instead, until later this… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend To-Do List
