So, are children considered perennial then? They definitely keep growing year after year but way to fast! They’re kind of like weeds but cuter 🤔

I've been playing catch up around here lately.
After horribly neglecting the farm for close to TWO WEEKS, I'm still finding reasons to feel good about the status of things :)

DISCOVERY:

#1 When I pushed down the grass and weeds that surrounded my pepper and tomato plants, all of the plants looked green and healthy, most with peppers or blossoms on them!

#2 We discovered that momma chickens do indeed give
piggy-back rides to their babies :)

#3 Some tomatoes get MUCH bigger than others do :)

#4 I finally figured out why they call them SUN Flowers :)

#5 I can fit exactly 6 crates in the tractor bucket :0

#6 I think I heard one of the hens crowing like a rooster, and I did not see that in any of those intruction manuals for chickens :)

#7 Tomatoes

#8 Tomatoes :)

Zucchini bread anyone?Probably between 60 and 80 lbs of Zucchini here!10 or 15 bucks, whatever works :)
