Saying goodbye to Jenny

At only 6 months old, I wouldn't have thought that Jenny (my Narragansett turkey hen) was nearing the end of her life.  However, this week she developed a cough.  I wasn't sure what to do.  I called a vet that said he made house calls in his ad.  He never called me back.  Friday I noticed she couldn't breathe without keeping her mouth open.  By then it was too late.  She collapsed Friday night. I was at the farm by myself.  My husband had an eye appointment.  I was trying to get her inside her…See More

"We ordered 4 turkeys and 2 survived.  But we think it was our fault not giving them high protein food in the early days - we had them on chick starter.  Other than that - we have thoroughly enjoyed our turkeys, very friendly, will follow…"

2014 will be the year we move to the farm – that is a declaration!  We are so close and to think of all that we were able to accomplish is really quite humbling when we look back.  Almost 14 months later and we’re still working hard to get to the farm.

This last month brought some high moments for us and some low.

My father passed away at the age of 91 on December 5.  I had so wanted him to see the farm and even though I wrote him each week and sent him weekly pictures of the…

Missed the 1 year mark! Oh well, life happens...

Since my last update at the end of October, we’ve accomplished quite a bit.  I get frustrated with our self-imposed deadlines but then I often forget about how much has to be accomplished before we can do something.  For example, our one goal this past Thanksgiving weekend when we had 4 days off was to get the sheetrock in my daughter’s bathroom done.  This is the last room in the basement to be done and when it is completed we can call for the mud/tapers.  Well, not exactly, we still have 2…
