Farm Update

Here's our garden. Our biggest crop so far is kale.

And about four weeks ago, our rabbits multiplied... again! This is the momma rabbit, in the middle, with two of her young.

"Thirty-eight", as we call her, and Bubba are doing great. We're getting about a gallon of milk per day and enjoying the wonders of an solar powered electric fence!

Our chickens are now about six weeks old. These are White Leghorns and Plymouth Rocks.And last, but not least, here's a picture of one of our cute new kitties.

So there you have it.

With summer, comes life abundantely! Wow, I had no idea your fence was solar powered, I guess that explains the cows getting out on cloudy days! Not too much of a charge on the fence.

Great pics Stephen, you've inspired me to do a picture post of my own.

I don't think that we've ever tried growing kale before, but I have heard alot of good things about colcannon. ;)

Actually, we got the solar fence a couple of weeks ago. The solution to keeping the cow in was actually more simple...lock the gate!
BTW, thank you for calling us about that, we really appreciate it.

Mike, the perpetual Irishman:
It was so good to see y'all the other day! Please do a post on your garden!
I've actually never heard of colcannon

Great pics!

I don't remember, do you raise rabbits for meat or their chocolate eggs?

Jess:
Thanks, my mom designed it.
I'm not sure what kind of rabbits we have, our neighbor just gave them to us.
As to the kitten offer, no thanks! We discovered the other day that we have three females and one male that are already producing so we should have kittens coming "out the ears" pretty soon!

Son3:
I'm kinda hesitant to answer that question because if I did, you'd turn me in to PETA. ;P
BTW, how are you liking the raised bed system of gardening?

Thanks for the comments!

Hey Stephen,

Do you have any post about the public school system? If so would you send them to me? Working on a project, wanted some extra input.

Thanks!

I actually have never done a post dedicated to addressing the public school system issue.
Sorry!
