Springtime on Suzie's Farm

Springtime on Suzie's Farm

Springtime is my absolute favorite!  Dirty brown turning to vibrant green, snow and ice melting, and best of all, baby animals!

Baby chicks arrived today.  Of course, we must get them from the same place Martha Stewart gets hers, so these arrived in the mail.  Suzie does not yet trust her new puppy yet so they came to Rochester and are keeping me company today in my office.  Oh, the perks of having my own office!  As you can see, Brenda and Shae got a little attached.  :)

Here is the new pup we adopted from Paws and Claws.  Her name is Bella.  She's fitting in well with our family.

Most importantly, she is getting along with her new sister, Josie.  It is a joy to watch them play together.

This is unrelated, but I just had to show somebody.  Check out this teeny, weeny egg one of my old girls laid!  So strange...

Another highlight of my spring, is turning the cows out to pasture.  Here are Helen and Flo just after getting dropped off at summer camp.  They should have babies in August.

Their babies and sister got left back at home.  They were sad at first, but now they're like, hey, more grass for me!  

My Uncle Wane is fortunate enough to have a den of baby foxes under his shed every year.  Here is one of the trail camera pictures he captured.  So stinkin' cute!

Speaking of Uncle Wane, he let me help with his beekeeping mission this year.  I even got to begin my own hive.  It's been very fun for me so far, and it seems that the hive is doing well!  A girl never can wear too many hats!

Thanks for keeping up on Suzie's farming adventures, and HAPPY SPRING to each and every one of you! 

Piece out!

Your pictures bring back such great memories,. with the children on our farm. All we have now is our Bassett, Lucy. I, too, loved the chickens when we first got them. We raised broilers for many years, but had hens that laid colored eggs. Really liked farrowing, too.

I don't think I've ever been ready for a trip or event earlier than the night before. I have IDEAS for months, but those ideas don't come to fruition until the looming deadline of "if they don't trick or treat now, they don't trick or treat until next year" or "if you don't leave now, the airplane will leave without you" forces my hand and my sewing machine.
