How quickly they grow

Perle our farm dog is almost one year old.

This is just an aside, but I've started looking into where views of this page come from.  And if it is you who are viewing in Germany, please tell me why.  There are more than double the views from Germany than there are from the US.  I find this odd.  No other country views this blog. Huh.

Found a lot of good photos

I just looked at the files on a memory card from summer.  Check out all these great pics.

Took less than 3 hours after the nest boxes went in...

Threatening Chickens

I threatened the chickens this week.

I took the advice of a nice lady I met at a hops picking session last weekend. She's a Traverse City native who lives in the jungle of Costa Rica. She lives off her farm including roasting her own coffee and grinding her own chocolate so I figured she must know what she's talking about.

So I told them if we didn't see any eggs soon, we'd be eating chicken soup for dinner all winter long.

Joel is building egg boxes as we speak. So we'll see....

New Addition

Everyone meet Perle. She should be joining our family sometime in Mid June. She is a Great Pyrenees and we are excited to have yet another girl in our house. Adeline, me, Perle, Guinness, 27 chickens and 2500 hops plants; all girls.
