As Much ......

As much as I loved my chickens, I decided to sell them.  They went to a real nice family that already had many of the same kind hens I had AND they had 2 little boys that already loved them.  So what am I up to now .....

I am knitting, crocheting, and spinning my own yarn.  I am saving my money for a spinning wheel and hope to have that by July.  Right now I am using a Turkish Drop Spindle.  It is one of the oldest tools known to man because they have used it to make fabric since right after Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden -- lol -- they had to make those clothes from something.

My Hens

Hello everyone -- I now have 20 hens, all Gold Comets.  Ten of the hens are only 20 weeks old so they are not all laying yet.  I love them and have so much fun taking care of them and watching them through out the day.

Since my last blog post, winter has passed and it is spring here in the "High Country" of North Carolina.  I have planted some salad greens, onions, strawberries, and early peas.  I can't wait to get the rest of my garden in. 

I have a lot going on this spring and summer too -- the local farmer's market, selling my knitting and crochet, and of course selling my eggs.

I also hope lots of my family will be here to see me too. 

Don't forget to live every breath
