Our (south) Americaunas are happy: Frida, Lupe, Angelina, Marioly and Nhora plus rooster Diego. Partridge Rocks from last year laying as well as this year's Silver Wyandottes, Buff Orps, DeKalb Amberlinks, Welsummers and Laverne the RIR. We converted an old dog house for them. Finally everyone has started laying, so we have lots of hens now that we can justify feeding, and 2 roosters.
Official Farm Dog
1/9/2010 Meet Ginger, who has recently relocated to the Williams Farm from the Walton County Animal Control facility. We might just be "dog people" after all (don't tell Gracie!)
Farm animals, finally.
11/2009 Haha. I started a worm compost bin... This is Alfred.
Pecans have fallen. We watch TV and pick out nuts at night. Bumper crop this year - they are small but plentiful. The community forrester says that's because the trees are under stress from last summer's drought.
Rocky (AKA the Black One) and Rollo (AKA the Grey one) are great fun and starting to earn their keep.
New Roof Done!
And of course when the 6 layers of shingles (!) came off it's the right time to add a dormer and more windows upstairs in the "orphanage" (the big room where all those 31 and under sleep). Note the original cedar shakes.
Watch the video progress here: Day 1 and Days 2&3
Official Farm Truck
Woody's new love. Such a deal! 4 wheel drive - rust - what more could you want? Mike wanted to drive it back to New Hampshire. Sorry, kid.
Switching out the bumper stickers on our new old truck. Can you guess which is which?
Needs a bit of work... finally repairs are underway here!
The turning leaves were beautiful ...
There were some lovely deep & muted colors in the front yard and the grape arbor.
