Collection of Pictures from Our Little Farm
You never know what you're going to find waking around our property. This is a collection of photos I have taken over the past few months around our little farm.
Just before our county fair the kids took their pigs out for a walk. It was a particularly hot day. My daughter's pig savored a mud bath as soon as she returned to the pin. There's nothing like a mud bath to cool you off....not that I've tried it, but it's how pigs stay cool!

I preserve as many tomatoes as possible. Find out how I can tomatoes.
Cutting, splitting and curing firewood is a yearlong chore. Rod usually begins cutting wood at the first signs of spring. The wood cures all summer and then it's stacked in our wood shed. Wood is our primary source of heat for our house.
We have had chickens for more than 12 years. Every year we add a few more to our flock. I do love our chickens, but sometimes they can be tough...Read The Good, The Bad and The Ugly where I discuss the pros and cons of free range chickens.
In addition to all our chickens, we also have two ducks. Rod cannot resist a cute feathery baby animal in the spring. A few years ago he went to buy some chicken feed and he came home toting more baby chicks and some ducks! Currently we have 32 chickens, 2 roosters and 2 ducks! I cannot let him go to the feed store during chick days at our local stores!
A bear found my bee hives and thought they'd make a nice snack. He ate a lot of honey. Not only did he knock over the boxes, he carried several of the boxes and frames quite a distance away. If you have honey bees you'll want to read how to spin honey!
We celebrated the end of summer and a birthday with an outdoor party.
