Look what started hatching yesterday! This little one hatched four days early. He's being spoiled. This morning, this little one hatched (three days early)! A few minutes ago, I heard more peeping in the incubator!!! We're about to have a full house!
Remember how I said my Grampa Eddie never threw anything away? Look what we found!!! It's an old ceramic tile, and it's HUGE! Ted's going to try to get it with the hay spear once the ground dries out a little and move it for me. I want to set it in the fork of … Continue reading Hidden treasure!
Ted and I were out checking the cleared land again. It smells like Christmas over here! This giant pile of pine trees was pushed into the ravine. It will eventually rot back into the soil, but until then, it will serve as a home for rabbits, birds, and other wildlife. We kept hearing things … Continue reading Little friend
Look what we found in the cleared land!

I was filling this bucket at 8 a.m. before heading … Continue reading Early morning chores
