Dirty little chick

Sometimes baby chicks get their bums plugged up. The cure is a little warm water and a gentle de-plugging.

Here Aimee is applying the treatment.

I heard the peep in the house and came into the kitchen to take a picture.

Later in the day, the lambs decided to break out through one of the cheap gates we make with lumber from our local apple ladder mill.

I guess this one needs an extra rung.

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.
