Around the Farm

It's a busy time around the farm, and I am on my third week of fighting a cough and managed to lose my voice this weekend. Not exactly good timing, but when is there a good time to be sick.
I've spent most of my time on the couch, watching tv, drinking tea, drinking juice, 
drinking water, enjoying cough drop after cough drop.  
I walked a little bit today to see what it going on outside that I have been missing out on.

Harvest time has arrived.

Some of our chicken issues have been worked out, and we are finally enjoying eggs!
I love the assortment of sizes and colors our mixed flock is producing!

Another introduction for you this week. This is Sue. We had a lot of debate whether or not she was a rooster. Thanks to growing up listening to a LOT of Johnny Cash, I named her Sue..... just in case.

 We are under our first Frost Advisory tonight. Days of seeing pretty blooms will soon be ending.

 Hope ya'll have a great week!

  1. Get well soon!! Those coughs can be so annoying when they go on and on. You take care of yourself!! Your farm looks so pretty and I love the eggs, wish I had some fresh ones! They are beautiful chickens.

  2. She is a beauty! Yay for harvest time! I hope you are feeling well soon! :)

  3. Get well soon!
    Is this weather amazing or what? I had morning glories blooming this morning on October 14th. One for the record books.

  4. I hope you feel better soon! Your eggs are so pretty. I love that photo of them all lined up in the carton. And I hope Sue is a girl! I'm sort of torn on the gender. The comb and wattles look pretty big, but the tail looks more like a female's feather pattern to me. I guess you'll know sooner or later if you hear a crow haha!

  5. Get well soon. I've been fighting off both a cough and an eye infection - don't feel unwell enough to do nothing but it sure takes the edge off things. Love your eggs! They must make fantastic poached eggs.

  6. Hope you feel better soon. I wish I could have chickens, I'd love to get fresh eggs. Love the name you picked. I hope the rest of your week goes better.

  7. Doesn't appear Sue has any spurs, so it may be safe to assume she's a hen. :)

  8. i laughed at your choice of name for the hen--better safe than sorry, though i've yet to personally meet a boy named sue. :)

  9. Kris, here's hoping you're feeling better this weekend! As always, your photography is beautiful- I almost feel like I have been for a visit. :) Nice to Meet you, Miss Sue- you keep up the good work with those pretty brown eggs!

    Love, Joy
