Obviously most of these Farm Fresh Friday posts are going to be written on Saturdays, but I refuse to give up the alliteration, so you guys are just going to have to humor me. Thank you. On with the post:
Basically, we’re loving life. I think I am really suited for this small town-country-farm life. I feel lighter and happier. Our quality of life has improved so vastly. And Rob has never smiled as big as he does when he drives this tractor:
We’re starting to have regular weekly orders from local natural food stores, so we’ve been harvesting a lot! Our lettuce is looking so beautiful. Before coming to the farm, I never really considered the aesthetic qualities of lettuce, but it’s hard to deny the beauty of this red and green butterhead.
Rob finished Clare’s amazing “pallet” playhouse. I put pallet in quotes because it definitely doesn’t look like it was built from pallets. It’s an adorable little cabin! Clare absolutely loves it. Like, she freaked out when she saw it. I’ll be revealing it on the blog very soon.
Since we’re about 20 minutes from town, it’s easy to start feeling a little bit isolated on the farm, so we’ve been making a real effort to get involved in the local community. Today we visited the amazing local library and took Clare to the spring festival in the park. It was really fun!
Anyone have any tips for raising chickens?
