A farm picture post for you tonight..
We have still not moved out for the summer..
Going on our trip to Nfld. and other things seem to be slowing us down but we are making a bit of progress..
We go each day that we can and then come home for the night and go again in a day or so..
We have a graduation of our sweet grandson, Matt this week and we need to go to the cottage and do some yard work but Terry thinks next week for almost sure.. smile..
Anyway, here are a few pics of the the last couple of times we were there..
A bit of gnocchi with herbs and garlic for a lunch ...
Washing the dishes in the old farmstyle way..
By hand.. smile..
Sweet son helping his father decide where the pens for the geese and ducks are going..
Close to a little stream that flows from the spring..
I think they will like it there..
A little floor mat I found in a shop but so love the shades of blue and greens in it that I put it on the table for some inspiration..
I hope to paint the kitchen sometime this summer..
I told you we are making progress..
Our meat king chicks came in and are about a week old already...
Do you want to hear about our little chicken miracle?
Yesterday, after we came home from church Terry put the chicks in a big pen he built to put in the sunroom until next week when they will go to the barn..
It is a lot bigger and they seem to like it but when I went in to see them I noticed one seem to be out for the count..
Just laying there breathing fast..
Well, the next time I went in it was literally ten toes up..
It's feet were stuck up and it was barely breathing..
I picked it up and put it in a basket on a table there and as none of us could kill it, I just left it there to die..
Dustin says I am not going to make much of a farmer if I feel so bad over one wee chick.. grin..
In the meantime he had come out with another one that had been pecked and was bleeding..
Oh brother !
I am beginning to think they are more bother then they are worth but we put it in a separate box so they wouldn't pick on it..
I went to bed last night and told Terry to do something with the chick that must be dead by then..
When I came out this morning, Terry said that chicken is in on the floor..
I thought he meant it was dead but no it was running around and happy as a lark..
How it didn't break it's leg getting off the table is beyond me..
The other one is the separate box was fine, too and peeping away..
Isn't that weird?
Just thankful anyway that we didn't lose them but we do need to reintroduce them to their pals...
Sorry for the long chicken story..
I am sure there will be more so prepare yourselves.. grin..
Some salad fixings..
Lunchtime table setting..
Cucumber and Shallot Salad...
More plain fare which Terry is happy to receive after all the restaurant meals on the trip..
Planting more herbs..
Making some violet oil..
Lots of Rhubarb jam in the making..
Taking most of my plants to the farm as they grow so well there..
This is my Pregnant Onion..
See the babies..
My favourite plant..
A sweet old plate I found at the thrift shop for the farm..
Pantry window sill..
And looking out the pantry window..
Lilacs and green grass...
Well, dear hearts this is all for tonight..
I am headed for bed as it is almost nine o'clock and I always read for an hour..
Hope to hear from all you sweet readers and may God bless each and everyone of you..
Till next time..
