Chickens

Chickens free range the property.  One of our year-old White Rocks, Broody, hatched a chick last week – our first farm-raised animal!  A few of the spring chicks are laying, giving us 2-3 eggs per day.  It’s so nice to once again eat our own eggs!

Lemonade-Stand

Ella’s first lemonade stand.  As she is very eager to have a horse, I suggested she start finding ways to earn money to care for said horse. Ella’s stand was “pay what you wish”, and she made over $6 towards her horse fund!  Her lemonade, enjoyed here by our neighbors Julia and Beth, was made with lemons from Grandma and Grandpa in Arizona, honey brought from our homestead in Oregon, and lots of ice (perfect for yesterday’s extreme heat!).  TentTrailerGoodbye

Before we left for California, we packed up the tent trailer and moved into a nice spacious 7 person tent.  The tent trailer was such a wonderful place to live for a few months, and we were so grateful for the loan.  The tent has been very breezy and cozy.

After months of living a small cardboard box and chicken tractor, our chickens are finally free ranging.  It is so nice to have their presence on the land and to benefit from their tick-eating!  The kids are completely enthralled, watching “chicken TV” for hours, holding them gently in their laps, and feeding them from their hands. Our little piece of land is slowly becoming a homestead.

*** We’re moving on to the land tomorrow – for real this time!  I need a bit of extra energy focused on setting up our kitchen and sleeping space, so I’m going to take a few days away from this space.  Wishing you a wonderful beginning to your week!  – Teri

 

Out the Front Door

There is just so much going on outside our front door right now. Red bud and apple trees bursting into bloom, outdoor kitchen areas taking shape, gardens growing bit by bit, native trees planted.  It’s almost too much to even try to capture in words, but sometimes a photo captures a moment in time so precious…

So, following in the footsteps of the many other bloggers who have pioneered the “wordless post,” I’m going to periodically share what is going on right outside my door.  Join me if you’d like: post a link to a moment you’d like to share in the comments below, or share it on my Facebook page.  Let’s all celebrate the beautiful, crazy, messy life that happens right outside our doors.
