    The baby chicks came in yesterday, I lost 2 over night. They are supposed to be guaranteed live for 48 hours after delivery so I may call and see what they offer. I decided that the old tiller is going to take more time to fix than I want to spend on it right now, so I got my old garden tractor fired up. I have a single plow for it so I will just use that to make some rows.

    That pepper threw me for a second, I thought you were going to have a salad and a slug.

    That's not a pepper or slug, that's an Ichibon eggplant. Great in stir fry ;)

    Pretty good since I just planted them early this spring.

    Our garden didn't do too well this year, but we are starting to get eggs.

    Spent today planting marigold seeds in the garden to ward off the nematodes and weeding between the planting beds.

    Anyone have experience with gas powered Log Splitters?
    Looking at the Champion Brand 27 Ton 0r 32? Ton gas powered splitter.
    Would be for a Multi Tree (Maybe 20) Multi unknown species project..

    We have decided it is time to buy a Small Farm/ Homestead. Elbow deep in offers and planning. Hope to be on a piece of property by the fall :)

    Looks like our plans for a larger and flatter homestead / mini farm officially fell through.
    Now it looks like we are swapping to a more woodland based / terraced farming approach.
    Looks like we will be able to have a medium sized garden,Honey Bees and now we can have chickens!
    PLUS it should only take 1/10 the amount of work to set up and get started that our original option would have :)
