Hey you turkeys!

This world is better with you in it. We're so glad you're here. (Even if you did just poop on the counter, like I just did.) Here's What's Happening At Good Spirits Farm

  • The meat chickens and turkeys have moved out onto the pasture, but it's been so rainy that keeping them dry and warm has been a challenge. Several times a day I go out to spread fresh hay on the ground for them, so they have dry spots to sleep. So far I haven't lost any to the dampness, but man I'd love to have a day without rain so everything could dry out a bit.

  • It's officially the time of year when there is no extra time. I try to remind myself when I'm still out working at 8:30 p.m. that this doesn't last forever--just, you know, for the next five months or so.

  • The corn and sunflowers are in the ground, and the strawberries and blackberries are starting to form on their vines. Summer is on its way!
