1st Week of May 2016
This week babies came! On Friday, we received our first order of day old Cornish Cross broiler chicks. If I raise a million chickens, I don't think I'll ever become immune to their cuteness.
Today, our rabbit Brandi had her babies. I was very anxious since she had lost her first litter, but she did everything right this time. I checked on her nearly every hour all weekend, and when I came out around 1:30 PM today, she was in the nest box with her new babies. Within a few more minutes, she had moved them to the back of the box and covered them with her fur. I believe there are six of them.
Papa Brody, on the left, appears completely disinterested as his offspring enter the world in the hutch next door. :-)
We harvested our first microgreens on Wednesday. They made tasty salads with a little spicy in the mix. We also planted a bed of kale and swiss chard and another of potatoes. I made some progress on building another beehive, which I hope to finish up this coming week.
Have a wonderful week!
