Around the Homestead

The chickens are now out free ranging - I gave up the last bit of my kale to them.

I saw a great sign the other day, it said - "Caution, free ranging children" - I love it! and will have to come up with a way to make one to hang on our barn.

With snow flurries in the air most of the day today, we planted seven raspberry bushes that our neighbor gave us - they are the larger size raspberries.    I do hope they grow well and provide many berries in the years to come.


  1. Snow flurries, how lovely. I love the first few snow flurries. You are one awesome chicken owner, I have yet to let our chickens hit the kale, I keep going out to chase them away from it :)

    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Snow already? We had our first true freezing temperature last night...oh but it felt good to snuggle last night. Enjoy your weekend...

  3. I love the change in seasons, too. It really gets me motivated with all my knitting projects. I wish that our "girls" could free range, but we have too many predators here in the California mountains.

  4. Love the idea of that sign. I need one for my family. ...Snow flurries...I am a little bit jealous of that, but maybe again it is too early for such cold weather 40s and 50s suits us well for now.

  5. My boys are waiting for snow here - last year we missed Halloween due to snow but that is an anomaly. Raspberries - ooh, yummy!
