I thought I would pop in and show you what is happening around Kingsbury Brook Farm. Pearl and Marble, our East Friesian sheep, are enjoying their new ”haircut” and our son is begging us to expand our flock and get him a new lamb for his first day of preschool. What happened to the good old days when a lollipop was enough?
Moose, our Maremma sheep dog, is looking for shade wherever he can and is already dreaming about a cold and snowy winter wonderland.
We lost one of our chickens to a predator two months ago. We still have two laying hens who provide us with delicious organic eggs every morning.
Our chicken coop is looking a little wild… The bush on the left is filled with two kinds of sweet and juicy raspberries. It is nice to come out of the coop with fresh eggs and berries for breakfast.
Our kitchen garden is filling up very nicely (weeds included!). We are planning an outdoor fall/harvest celebration in our garden next month and I look forward to showing you around some more.
We are growing a new crop this year: Blacktail Mountain watermelons. Let’s hope they ripen on time! We are located in zone 4a and our growing season is pretty short.
Our apples are waiting for their autumn blush and I am awaiting the change of season with great anticipation. You can read about my 10 tips for getting your home ready for fall here.Greetings from Kingsbury Brook Farm!
Sharing at these parties!
