Hazel found a ladybug yesterday during chores….
The killdeer are everywhere….
The fields are turning….
The robins are buildings nests….
And we had rain today! And even better we planted wheatgrass seeds yesterday!
All proof….it is spring…and like clockwork.
Check out our neighbors in the Bulletin!!
They do great work…we have cleared acres that haven’t been touched in years. One of these cleared will be for corn and one for buckwheat this coming year. We will see how it goes…
We are down at Drake Park every Sunday from 3-4pm. We are either in a green Subaru (most of the time) or a black pickup. We have plenty of eggs most weeks and will only be getting more and more as the days get longer.
Also, we will likely have our first porkers back from the butcher by the March 28th drop. There is still time to get a special cut if you interested- just let us know.
See you Sunday!!
We tried four different breeds of turkeys this year…Giant Whites, Bourbon Reds, Narragansett, and Broad Breasted Bronze. The first is the ‘industry standard’ breed which replaced the Bronze as the ‘bigger, fatter, faster’ breed. The Narrangansett, and the Bourbon Reds a old school heritage breed that were developed more for bueaty, function, hardiness, and flavor.
The Giant White Toms were by far the most spectacular. These guys are amazing with their coarse black beards growing out of a perfectly white breast. His headdress presents more colors than a mood ring and far more accurate as well. But the greatest feature was the strut – this guy has moves- he brings the tips of his primary wing feathers to the ground to draw a perfect proverbial ‘line in the sand.’ All the whites were also the most communitive of all the breeds- not only with the gobbel gobbels, but with the shutters, huffs and coos as well.
More later, however, this spring we will likely stick with the Bronze…..
