|A few small puddles in the corn, but nothing major! |
You can see some of the oats (left) and some of the corn (right)
|Baby Black Turtle Beans in the field|
|You can start to see the rows of beans|
|Tomato plant in a tire. Yes, a tire. It's the best way to grow tomatoes (we think). They absorb the heat and help the plants grow nice and big. The only only downfall is that they do require more watering.|
|Plants starting to be visible - we put straw between all our rows so we (hopefully) don't have|
to weed a whole lot this summer.
|The strawberries are just starting to ripen up.|
And, we have a hummingbird that likes to visit my hanging basket.
Also a blessing, we sold our breeding stock out of Rue's litter - here's the little guy that will be leaving our farm to go to a great new home sometime in July.
The piglets are all still growing and are starting to eat feed. They enjoy it so much that they try to crawl in the feed dishes.

|The feed dish is barely visible! You can just make out the blue rim.|
Pepper and Boy have been very friendly with each other lately, so we are hoping that means a new batch of babies in the fall. :)
Pepper's first batch of piglets are all doing very well. They are completely weaned and enjoying their own patch of pasture.
|Checking out my shoes|
|Here they come!|
|The Three Musketeers|
|Aren't I cute?|
|12 days old|
Last, but not least, the turkeys and other random chickens:
|You can finally tell the turkeys look quite a bit different from the chickens - the itty bitty turkeys looked a lot like the chickens. Now that they are bigger, they are starting to show more of their turkey qualities. They make fun sounds too.|
|Barred Rock chick and "Alice" the Polish chicken. Their expressions are so funny!|
