What’s going on on the Farm


Lots of things are going on around here lately.

The biggest one is that we are loosing a lot of our chickens.  A raccoon keeps breaking in to our main coop & killing our chickens.

We got 6 turkeys which we were very happy to get & start to raise.  The did get pretty big, but then something broke in to their coop & got them all.

We also had some meat birds that we were raising for our own use, but something got in to their coop & killed them too.

Now I’m on a mission to learn everything I can about raising chickens/turkeys so that I can try to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.

We also tried, yes we tried, to have a nice garden this year.  Well those pesky caterpillars decided that they liked our trees & plants more than we did.  Several trees lost all of their leaves & they ate the plants that were in the garden.  Thankfully the trees have grown new leaves & our potato plants survived.

Here’s hoping that the caterpillars don’t come back next year b/c I really want to have a nice garden & be able to eat what we grow.

Happy Farming,

The Flip Flop Farm Girl….
