Today we will go to a Memorial Day service with our friend Myrtle. Then we will finish planting the garden. This evening we will have a picnic with some other families, and play some games. Enjoy your day, and don't forget to show gratefulness to the veterans, and their families, who have served our country.

If you still want to order chickens, we have more available in our second batch. They are about two weeks old, and will be butchered on Friday, July 3rd. There are also many other dates to pick from starting in August. If you have not had pasture raised chicken before, it is delicious. They are big, juicy, and very flavorful! Our order form can be downloaded from our blog - just click on the 2009 Order Form link under "Farm Links".

Come on out, take a tour of our farm, visit with the animals, and get some delicious organically grown food! Currently we have asparagus, rhubarb, herbs, baked goods, milk, and eggs. The availability of our products will change weekly, and we will try to keep you updated.
Looking forward to visiting with you!

We love you!

We have the camper that my family camped in when I was little. It's still in relatively good shape, and it's a joy to see my kids enjoying it the way I did. As a kid, I always thought camping was so much fun, now it's work, but I do enjoy it. :)

Em and Jonny worked on planting the peas. In past years, peas have not been one of our best performing crops. But we will try again this year.
Brandon and Jonny worked on uncovering the strawberries. Last year we had a record strawberry harvest from the patch in this picture, and enjoyed strawberry kefir smoothies all winter long (up until a month ago). We have two strawberry patches, hopefully one does really well again this year.
Lest you think Mother is lazy, I did help in the garden! ;) I planted lots of seeds.....and took lots of pictures. :) It seems I always end up with the camera, or I hand it off to Emily, which she loves.
Well, I'm off to take more pictures! :)

Mike is a hard worker, and is great at teaching the art of being meticulous. :) Our boys and Em really love and appreciate their Daddy now, but I know that someday, when they are grown, they will realize how tremendously fortunate they are to have had the father they do.
Happy Birthday, honey!
We love you!
P.S. Good job Mike and Janice! You taught him well!
P.S.S. I took two pictures prior to this one, and Brandon kept closing his eyes. So for this picture he made sure they were open. :)
