Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Tuesday Happy Snaps

Well, there way no way Momma Duck was going to let me take some happy snaps of her little ones today... so I'll try again tomorrow. But she got the troop up - all 8 of them - and led them around. We scooted her back to her nest tho - we need to get her secured into a 'crow free' area until those little guys are a bit bigger than 'bite sized." But here are a few snaps of what else is going on today.

I liked this view of the turkey house thru the front garden flowers this morning. If you look closely you can see that the corn grew really tall this year - its just to the left of the building in the back.

I don't know about you but fall is in the air. I love the morning lighting in the hen yard at this time of year. It gives some beautiful light and shade to the hen swarm.

We've been working on getting the electric hot wire up on the new fenced in area. Tomorrow we need to work on gates and then we are good to go!

Happy Tuesday everyone - I'm about to get another pot of tomato sauce going....anyone else gettin' sauced?
