Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

All Caught Up. Well, Almost!

 There is just a half day's work left on the play fort. I had to call it off for a bit inorder to get the chicken coop annex finished.

The coop annex is already for the new residents on June 4th. Elaine is going to finish painting the trim for me. Note that the bird house has a swallow sitting on the roof, so I guess we will be kept amused by the aerobatics again this summer. Tree swallows are amazing flyers.  Note: I said flyers, not friers. The friers are shown in the middle of their molt.  There are two hens missing from the picture, probably inside laying.

Roo is still showing some of the effects of his frozen comb and wattles , but it appears to be sluffing off. He is the boss, and keeps a close eye on his "girls"

3/4 of the garden is now planted. About 2 acres of new pasture have been seeded  and some of the flower beds have been cleaned up. The seeding was just completed hours before the first thunderstorm of the year. Good planning? Or good luck? There have been a whole bunch of minor jobs done besides, so it's now play time on the acreage!Posted by Picasa

ooo, swallows! We just had our first sighting of tree swallows on our property - they were checking out the nest boxes Martin put out. Hopefully at least one couple will settle down here!
It sounds like you've been very busy, too!

Stunning! I love the work and progress done! I've heard of frozen combs but never seen it!
Looks great!
