Well, in addition to keeping the goats we garden, do crafts and keep a few types of poultry.
Royal Purple Guinea
The guinea keets are sleepy! Zzz…
These are the ones you’ll probably hear first if you visit our place… Guineas are loud, but I love having them. They are good for insect/tick control, plus, they crack me up the way they run around all over the place. The picture on the top shows a male. You can tell by it’s larger crest and wattles or “gills” as they are sometimes called.
Part of our flock plus some barn cats
Of course we had to get a bunch of chickens too… It’s great having a constant source of fresh, free-range eggs.
Our chickens while still in their little brooder Cute and fluffy!
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our garden. We love to grow all sorts of flowers. vegetables and fruits. Below are some images from gardens past:
Tithonia – So cheerful… They’re ORANGE!
Pussy-willow catkin, uber-closeup! AK.A. “Someone was playing around with the macro lens.”
Rhubarb, Rhubarb,rhubarb… Can you say it five times fast?
The seed order came! The Seed Order Came!
I have a soft spot for verbenas…
Cantaloupe in training
Asparagus spears in various stages of maturity. I think there might be something wrong with the one in front…
So… When I’m not taking care of the above, I’m crafting or canning.
The first actually usable hand-spun yarn I made on my wheel.
A tam I made for my mother. The pattern is a free one from Ravelry called “Brambles“
Loud socks in progress!
