Farm Update

We completed our move to the farm on February 28th. We're still in the midst of the unpacking phase, but here is what we've accomplished so far:

  • we obtained 33 chicks. About 28 have survived. We think they might have been too cold.
  • we have also obtained 3 rabbits who will be our breeding stock.
  • We're planted all our roses including the St. John's variety.
  • we put the bed frame together.
  • we have improved the fencing.
  • we've been to show in a horse competition in Salem.
  • Paddy has cut down a whole bunch of blackberry bushes, which are quite the nuisance out here.
that's all for now. I'm trying to write this on my Kindle and it is getting too frustrating.

I've heard that you can rent goats to "mow down" blackberries. Sounds like that'd be fun to watch.
