The morning dew is heavy on the cattails this morning as I head out to weed the potato patch. Near the potato patch, the chickens are already busy searching for worms, bugs, grubs and field mice to eat along the pasture fence. An hour later they may be on the other side of the farm. It’s amazing how far the chickens travel every hour.
A favorite spot for the chickens during the day is the thick brush in the woods. Can you even see the rooster below? Hint: he’s a white rooster.
A few baby potatoes I uncovered while weeding the potato patch. Three little promises of great things to come soon. Potatoes are best when they are still young with delicate, paper thin skins you can peel just by rubbing them gently with your fingers.
