Starting to get their starting feathers and eating more, sleeping less. Yes, we are in the second week with our new farm chicks. They are almost double the size from when we received them in the mail, and still are very cute.
Next week we are to have a couple of mornings in the mid 30’s so we opted for one more week inside to get into the mid-40’s mornings of next week. Just like with our soon to be a mommy Daisy, we are probably being a little over protective. They will be all outside soon enough, for now we can all stay close.
A quick reminder, we are getting closer to the April 27th date for Daisy’s c-section and the new AKC English Bulldog puppies coming onto the farm. Now is the time to reserve a beautiful little bulldog puppy for your family. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
Here on New O’Hana Farm, TN we have sticks laying about continually. Then the Lord sends the rain and the wind and instead of sticks, we have large limbs falling from our old oak trees.
Bring out the ladder. Start up the saw! We have spent several hours cutting, hauling, and stacking and we still aren’t close to being done.
We took all the limbs from one giant oak, we discovered this strange muddy substance. Is this Goo inside her large trunk her way of beginning the rotting process? If you know, can you share with a comment?
The trees that are dead, decaying, and one that was hit by lightening and falling in to the road has to come down. But, we are also pruning our other trees and PLANTING NEW TREES!!!! Yay!
We pray we are past the last frost because our Green’s Lab is holding precious Fruit Trees, Crepe Myrtle Trees and Bushes and Vegetable and Fruit Seedlings!
A bible verse that comes to mind when we stand back and try to decide which limb needs trimming, is John 15:2 This is from the King James Version because it has been my favorite since I was a little girl. The Lord made us. The Lord loves us and He is patient to prune us allowing us to grow strong and become the very best that we can be.
John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away:and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Thank you Dear Lord! Have a blessed and beautiful day! Don’t forget to leave comments if you know what this brown goo is! :)Jen
Our 2 Helpers in the Garden tonightare our dogs Daisy and Oreo in the photo at the end of the gallery. Or should I say Our 5 Helpers. Daisy, our English Bulldog is pregnant with at least 3 puppies we saw on her ultrasound!!!)
Daisy and Oreo love to be with us every time we go outside. Daisy has quit charging the tractor that she must believe is a large grumbly beast trying to eat her momma! Now if we can get her to believe the motorcycle and lawn mower are not giant beasts to conquer, we have a complete victory!
I’m very much in love with our tractor and the color pink! For a moment I was laughing picturing my husband’s face when he opened the barn door and saw the tractor! Surprise!!! How do you think he would react if I paint her pink? 🙂
We have expanded our garden in a BIG WAY! And we are very excited to get the dirt tilled several times before we begin to plant. This large area by the barn has been the stomping ground for our goat families that we had last year.
Spring has arrived and we work around the rainy days. Cross our fingers and toes, after April 15, we hope to begin planting vegetable and fruit seeds and show you our progress.
Our prayer for everyone is that spring is bringing the hope of new life and growth. It can be both plant and personal. Hope your spring is shaping up well!
