It’s finally acting like a NJ spring. Rain, sun, rain, sun. And the plants and animals are responding. I had a friend visit and we took a little tour of the goings on around the farm and the upcoming restaurant site. I can tell you that I am MOST excited about this development…
Speaking of the restaurant, here is a view of the work in progress. The original flower garden is not in the picture, but is blooming furiously. Can you see the concrete palate where the kitchen will be constructed? As Jon likes to say, ‘this is where the magic happens’.
Back to the pastures. The pigs have been moved to a wooded area where they lounge under the trees all day long. Literally. I’m over thinking they’re dead as they do move every once in a while.
Over by the brood sows, we spotted this mom-to-be, looking like she’s into extra innings on her gestation period. She is so done. I can fully empathize.
In about 3 days to a week, she’ll be doing this…
The turkeys are also getting into the action. Here is a hen sitting on some eggs (we finally got them to sit IN the pen, so they wont get eaten on our front doorstep by the fox). The turkey-to-egg ratio is a little overdone, but she’s giving it her all. And check out the proud Tom.
Such a show off!
Last, the cows are calving and the greens are sprouting in the greenhouse. Everything is growing so fast!
These are almost ready to go out into the field. More on the vegetable garden in the next post. Go out and plant – the soil is perfect!
