Fall

Certainly seems that fall has arrived. The beans are turning in the fields.

The mornings are cool – I grab a stocking cap for morning chores. The ditches on my walk out to feed chickens are filled with golds and browns,

and cattails, too. The 4 or 5 dozen Canada geese that have been camped in our pasture for the past month have now moved on to warmer climes.

    It’s fall here in Indiana, too. The surrounding farms are getting the harvest in and have been harvesting since Labor Day. I love your photos of the fall………beautiful!
    Thank you!

    Hi, the mornings are certainly enjoyable now. We had a flock of chickens for the first time ever this year, what a riot! Fascinating to watch them grow and get feisty, to run them into pasture pens, then eventually just let them free range. Had one or two who would come up to me and start pecking at my shoe! We sold them to a local farmer because we are going on a two-and-a-half week vacation trip, so they came over last Friday to pick up the chickens. Now that was funny, watching us try to collect a bunch of chickens who DID NOT want to be collected. Much running around and squawking their heads off. When we get back, we’ll go collect four of the hens to keep ourselves for eggs. This part of (micro)farming is really fun!
