Spring peep-ers...

Went to get our chicks yesterday. Also some take out dinner. Aimee made the possible mistake of telling the guy behind the bar in the Mexican restaurant in Newport that she would be back for dinner after she "picked up some chicks."

I didn't know she was like that when I married her...

Some of these 15 small birds are not ours, but there's a minimum purchase, so Aimee cooked up a scheme with some other hen-keepers at Unity College. They'll be needing to come get theirs soon, but we will keep them until then, under a heat lamp in my den, because the chicks are happier if they can snuggle together a bit for warmth. They're peeping away as I type this.

Here's the chick-pics. Enjoy.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
