Spotted Salamander

George completed the chicken tractor and when it was moved from the construction site we found a Spotted Salamander underneath it! What a pleasant surprise!

The garden

(wow, i just noticed the day/time stamp.. 12 min shy of exactly 24 hours inbetween.. angles are a bit off but you can clearly see it is the same area)

Pre tilling 3/31/12

Post tilling 4/1/12

I am so excited! 120' long X 50 feet wide. My immediate family has the first 70', my oldest sister the next 30', and a very dear friend of mine the last 30'.  Who needs a gym membership?

George also tilled approx. 30 feet for me to use for our grapes. Wish us luck! We are on a mission to fill our freezer and every canning jar we have! Pesticide free!  NO GMO's!

Chickens will not arrive until May 10th at that point we will have 12 layers and 36 meat birds. Our two pre ordered piglets are scheduled to arrive around the same time. If anyone knows of anyone selling a beef calf please, please , please let us know.
