Today in the life of Fat Toad Farm

Here’s what’s going on here at Fat Toad on this gorgeous Thursday afternoon in June.

The peonies are popping -alluring to bees and humans alike with their lovely scent and pink-pink-pinkness!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melissa is transferring compost

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The strawberries are growing – grow, little berry, grow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elisa is feeding the chickens and collecting eggs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calley, Katie and Lily are processing caramel – fill, cap, seal, repeat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The irrigation hoses are drying in the sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judith is in the garden planting Flint Corn in the garden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thunder is chillin’ like a villain in the shade

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Farmer Steve is on the road today, so our neighbor John is filling in – chainsawing things that need to be chainsawed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…And as usual, I am in the house, clicking away at the computer and drinking heavily… which is especially awkward as I am nearly four months pregnant.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Actually, I’m working on testing a new flavor of liquor caramel, but the first story is more entertaining.  :)
