Some Farm Pics

Jack loves hanging out with the sheep. Often goes out and sleeps with them on colder nights.

This is Brownie, a super cool goat. She has two kids.Feeding time in the chicken coop.

Here are the lovely "Naked Neck" chickens. Sort of a strange breed but they are pretty cool.We stuck golf balls in all the nesting boxes. Supposedly keeps the chickens laying there. So far, so good. Except one chicken is trying really hard to hatch one.

The kittens the kids found in one of the sheds... now part of the clan.
The cover crop before we disc it in.
The layout of the high tunnels for cold weather production.

Tunnels going up...

So we had a little accident. We have microbursts now and then in Idaho and a 20' x 50' greenhouse high tunnel took flight down the highway. This happened the day after it was finished. It bent or broke just about every member and tore up the cover. We had "temporarily" staked it down... not good enough.

And here is the farm maintenance crew...
