Sunday morning, I looked out the kitchen window and spotted a large bald eagle near the top of one of our tall locust trees. She/he hung out for over an hour--no chickens were harmed. Speaking of chickens, one of our new hens laid her first egg--she had lots of help from our largest laying hen who decided squeeze in on top of her in the nest. And, we planted our first seeds of the 2011 growing season--onions, broccoli, cabbage, and lettuce--over 800 seeds.
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
