Farm Days

These days on the farm have been so incredible. I am loving getting my hands dirty everyday and soaking in the sunshine. I have been spending more and more time at the community garden which is now officially my home away from home.
My favorite part about my second home are definitely the goats.  Oh how I want one. The kids are just about the cutest things I have ever seen.

The buck, Boaz, and BB really hit it off. They were tagging each other. It was so funny. Here I am with Boaz by my side keeping a watchful eye on BB.

BB made a new friend with the community farm's farm dog Bello.

One of my main goals for my son is to teach him to love being out in nature and to instill a strong work ethic. The best way to teach him this is by tending the land. The other day I went to the community garden to work.  BB was not exactly happy about that so I put him in the "backpack" as I call it and got to work tilling the earth. He was snug as a bug close to his mama. One of the other members snapped this pic. I am in love with this picture right here. It reminds me of the beautiful, amazing women in Africa that can do just about anything with a baby on their back.

My chicks, can I even still call them that, are huge. Every time I check on them it looks like they have grown. They are now 2 weeks old. I will be sad to see them go but have another batch coming in May. I can't wait!

This week I am linking up with
Farm Girl Friday Blog Fest

  1. I have my girls work in the garden with me. One loves it. The other one isn't into it that much. But at least they will know how to grow their own food, if they need to.

    1. That's great. I think it is so important for our children to see where food comes from and how it grows. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Wow, what a neat blog post! I love that you wear your son on your back while hoe-ing---seriously, that is pretty awesome! :) What a cool thing that you are able to participate in a community farm, it looks really interesting.

    Thank you for sharing at Farm Girl Blog Fest #28! I'm interested in keeping up with how your garden and chicks do, and I hope you will continue sharing your progress.
