Spring Is On The Way


Even though this has been one of the coldest weeks this year, I am convinced that spring is just around the corner.  We have been hearing the birds in the trees as they start to migrate, there have been red breasted robins searching the yard for food, and the lambs have been born and are hopping around the pasture.  The chicks are hatching and cheeping. Soon we will see the first purple martin scouts looking to return for the summer. The apple trees, daffodils and the first dandelions are blooming. What signs of spring are you seeing in your area?

Incubating Eggs

There is nothing quite as exciting as the cracking of an egg when a newborn chick is coming into the world.  I always enjoy setting up my incubators and waiting for those little "cheeps".

Homemade Ginger Beer

Well, it finally hit. The yucky sickness that has been going around.  But fortunately it only lasted a few days, and I was the only one to get it. Why?  I chalk it up to lots of herbal tea, and GINGER!

Homemade Farm Fresh Sour Cream

mmm....who doesn't love sour cream? 
Especially on baked potatoes, on top of enchiladas and burritos, and my favorite- on a big plate of cheesy nachos!
