Ever-bearing strawberries means acorns and strawberries in September. 🍓🌰
We received new titles last weekend. You can now call us Papa and Mimi. Cole and Cici brought little Eleanor Rose into the world and we are all so in love.

Our first Midnight Majesty Maran egg is soooo tiny! 😍🥚
Sun's out, tongues out! Continue reading to hear the incredible stories that surround these two giant goofballs.
We rescued Benson when he was 9 months old (thank you, !!). He is now 2.5 yo (and still very much a puppy) and 145 lbs. He has eaten three couches, a vacuum, five pillows, three blankets, countless socks and towels, and despite feeding Daisy multiple kinds of no-poop-eating chews, he tends to enjoy the occasional Daisy-doo-doo. 🤢 💩 Despite all that, we love him so much! He has the sweetest face, big brown eyes, and is afraid of absolutely everything.
Daisy is approximately 6.5 yo. We rescued her as a senior (by Great Dane standards) at 5.5 yo from Hoover's Hause in North Prairie. She was severely abused and neglected, nearly half the weight she is now, infested with heartworms and hookworms, has lots of scar tissue, and has a permanent impression of a rope around her snout from being bound too tight. She was in a kennel with two other dogs, one of which was already dead. She lived in a veterinary clinic for six months before her journey to Wisconsin and finding her forever home with us. She is an absolute joy and super smart. We never knew how special senior dogs could be.
Most people ask how much they eat. Between the two of them, they eat 18 cups of food a day. That doesn't count all the treats!
The number one comment about Benson when we take them out is, "Wow, you can put a saddle on him!" One time we were going to track how many times people said it, but it was easier to track how many times people didn't say it. 🤣
Great Danes truly are gentle giants. Benson has taught Daisy how to sit on the couch and also on your lap. They love to sleep most of the day away and really don't require a lot of exercise, despite their size. Benson will get the zoomies once or twice a day, but other than that, they tend to just relax close to the house.
One of the best investments we ever made for our dogs was to purchase a for each of them. It's a virtual collar with a fence you create via an app on your phone (up to 20 locations!) guides you through the training process. We highly recommend Halo!
Benson and Daisy LOVE our UPS driver! They run up into his truck, knowing he has delicious treats in his pocket. 🤎 Swipe to see Benson so proud of his Amazon package delivered by UPS. 🥰
Hurry on over to Little Miss Sweet Pea's Farm Market today until 3 PM! They're having a bag sale! As much produce as you can fit into a plastic bag (with just a few limitations) for $15! Everything in the first picture was in my bag! Also pictured are some of my faves, including homemade guacamole (OMG soooooo good!!), Vern's string cheese whips, and these gorgeous sunflowers! 🌻
Yesterday we celebrated this beautiful mama-to-be with a vintage garden shower, complete with baby goats and baby angora bunnies. We cannot wait to meet little Miss Ella Rose. ❤️🌹
We're having grilled chicken tonight for Father's Day! Chicken of the Woods, that is. 🍄🐓🌳
Happy Pride Month, y'all! Remember to focus on the good. A new report came out saying 75% of non-LGBTQ+ Americans support LGBTQ+ rights. For the other 25%, a portion of those people most likely won't ever change their mind. However, some of them may be open to a dualistic perspective in which can learn to understand through education and empathy. Remember that the word Ally is a verb. Don't be afraid to take action in supporting those who need you most. Love is love.
We've been working hard over here. 🥰
Check out those sexy feathery legs! 😍 It's chick season!
Spring in Wisconsin is always full of surprises. Embrace the beauty. 🥰❄️
We were inspired to create a live aquascape in our home. Meet Fred the Fish, along with his many snail friends. Details below.
It's a rimless 15-gallon cube tank that we purchased on Facebook Marketplace. It came with the filter, heater, thermometer, pothos holder, substrate, several plants and moss, the driftwood in the back, most of the water, plant fertilizer, and all the snail friends for just $100. We also ordered variegated wisteria, baby tears, a red tiger lotus, A+ Plant Booster Growth Juice, and Liquid CO2 from DustinsFishTanks.com. The bseah dual-head grow light is from Amazon. Then we went to PetSmart for the fancy betta, water conditioner, food, test strips, and gorgeous piece of African mopani hardwood. All in at $300 for a much more expensive set-up. It's an absolute delight with wonderful sounds.
Please welcome Bob Marley to 3 Little Birds Natural Farm!! This was so spur of the moment. I woke up and decided to buy a bird today. Spent the morning researching what I was looking for, which mainly was small, hearty, and a pretty song. A Canary seemed like the perfect fit. Then I searched on Facebook marketplace until I found a usable vintage cage with a stand and glass feeder and waterer. A good friend of mine works for PetSmart corporate, so they are always my go-to. Little Bob Marley settled in immediately, singing his sweet songs.
Our big boy is two today! Now can you please stop acting like a puppy and be more like your sister?? Thanks, buddy! Regardless, we love all 150 pounds of this goofy guy. Happy birthday, Benson!!
Monstera albo variegata for sale in time for the holidays!! Pics of mother plant and propagation process included. Taking reservations and deposits now. We have THREE rooted, two-leaf, extremely healthy, potted plants at $500 each. Ready for local pickup in mid December.
Welcome to the farm, Marigold (grey tabby) and Zinnia (solid grey)! We mentioned to that we were searching for friendly barn cats, and she delivered with these two adorable, sweet, 14-week-old rescues. They're residing in the wood shed (old chicken coop) till they become used to their surroundings, and then they'll be full-time hunters of mice and chipmunks. 🐁🐿️ They've lived with chickens up until now, and they'll have their choice of sleeping in the wood shed, duck coop, or chicken coop. It'll be interesting to see which one they choose. Stop by for some kitten cuddles. ❤️
Hello! We've been absent for a while due to a very rough year for our family. 💔 Check out what we've been up to as a way of dealing with all the stress. 😍
Odette is broody again, so we acquired six fertile eggs for her to hatch out. Only, they will look nothing like her. 😉🤔 One week till candling. 🤞Thank you, !
Stepping up our plant game over here. Welcome Maggie, a Monstera Delisioca ‘Albo-Variegata' from a local grower.
invited me on a plant date to in Racine, WI last weekend, and unbeknownst to us, they were hosting a massive orchid show.
We approached one of the vendors as everyone was packing up, when I first spotted a lovely variegated jade. Then I saw her, in-person for the first time in my life, this rare beauty. I literally flushed, as if meeting a celebrity plant crush equivalent to or 😍😍. It didn't take much convincing from Nancy for me to splurge on my dream plant. However, I don't think Brian will ever let the two of us go shopping together again. 😂 Before we departed for the day, Nancy said she felt like we just went to Vegas and I was the big winner. 🎰
Maggie, named after the gracious woman who sold her to me, has had a bath, sits in a western window with 24-hour grow lights, a humidifier, and is tucked away from the likes (and licks) of the giant puppy. We're hoping she'll give us babies in the next year or two. 🌱
Meet our newest plant babies: 1 String of Hearts, 2 Hoya Heart, 3 Silver Satin Pothos, and 4 Peperomia Puteolata.
A beautiful winter evening walk with these two. They're loving the break in sub-zero temps.
We rescued Benson four months ago, and he is the best puppy! He's 13.5 months old, 35" at his withers, 130 #, and eats 12 cups of food a day. He's 100% obsessed with his mama, loves his sister, Stella, and enjoys sitting on the couch. We love you, Benny-boo.
Benson and Blue are enjoying Mama's winter break and are ready for some fun in the snow.
First time growing sweet potatoes! I almost gave up rooting around for them in the garden, and then I found the spot! Lots of funky and skinny ones. 🤷♀️ Can't wait to roast these with butternut squash and brussels sprouts for Thanksgiving. 😋🍠 Also,
picked up this vintage scale for me. 😍😘
Our handsome boy shining and basking in the autumn sun. 😍🌞
Shrooms, broccoli, dahlias, pumpkins, gourds, mums, leaves, sun, fall.
So glad I ventured outside today to capture all this beauty after sitting at the kitchen table for 12 hours yesterday and 8 hours today. Grad school started back up and the end of Q1 is next week, so grading has also consumed me.
Photo of me in the same jammies for two days not included (which is what fall break really looks like for teachers).
Our first car ride together, on our way to the vet. Any guesses on Benson's weight?
For those of you who thought Stella was big...
These two. 😍😍 Completely unprompted while waiting for me to finish cooking dinner.
Benson LOVED his first boat ride! Although he preferred to sit on us the whole time.
Our very first (and only) apple! We planted golden delicious, honey crisp, and bounty peach trees this spring. With the intense droughts and heat this spring, summer, and fall, we're first and foremost so proud of ourselves for keeping these saplings alive. And then to get a fruit from one of them was just pure deliciousness. It tasted just as good as it looks. 😋🍏🍎🍑
I love you, Mom.
Me and my shadow. Physically, literally, figuratively, emotionally. All of the above. He's slightly obsessed with his Mama. 🥰
This dual leash from is amazing! We weren't sure if Stella Blue and Benson would be okay being this close together, especially since Benson has only been with us for two weeks, but it's like they're walking each other, and we barely do any of the work. The main leash is from . The handle is beyond awesome... sooooo comfortable and perfect for someone with arthritis. Both the leash and Benson's matching collar are reflective, too. Stella's harness is made by . We've been using it every day for three years, and it still looks brand new. Lastly, we have rechargeable collar lights by , also available at . A must-have for our late night and early morning walks.
OMG, I can't take it. 🥰😍
Only nine days in, and they've made some huge strides in becoming besties. Thanks to for the advice! Highly recommended for dog (and chicken) training. ❤️🐕🦺🐓
I thought this orchid was high enough. He said he was sorry. 🥰
Those of you who struggle with photographing a black dog, I understand your struggle. It's difficult to capture just how adorable this big guy is.
Meet Benson!! He's a 110 pound, 9.5 month old, Great Dane rescue. Fully potty trained, walks beautifully on a leash, and LOVES his mama. Stella Blue (daddy's girl) still isn't quite sure about him, but we've been told it'll take a few months for Blue to accept him. Anyone have tips, stories to share, or reassurances for us?
