The Smell is Sweet

The lilacs are almost in full bloom. If you could only smell this picture. On the front lawn we have a white and purple lilac. If any of you Mainers want a plant I have plenty of babies below the bushes. Free for the taking.



After school today we took out the BB guns


And we shot at cans….you might be a red neck if…


Your mother tries to out shoot you and your only 7


I think I was having more fun than him. You should have seen me when I hit a can. We have tried clay pigeons before with shotguns and I didn’t hit a one but I can hit a still object. I will probably never shot a deer as they are usually on the move.


We planted corn that we had started. I cannot wait for fresh corn. Earlier today I went to the farmer’s market and they had all kinds of goodies. I bought a loaf of Italian bread from an Amish Gent and his daughter, it was the best homemade bread I’ve ever tasted!


Check out our Cornish X Rocks (broilers), they are 3 weeks old and boy have they grown!


Their feathers are growing in. We kept 25 and sold the rest (175) and we are still getting calls.


Here’s the turkeys. We are sold out of them too. We are only keeping 6.


This morning John and I went for a walk out back and naturally I brought my camera. This is a old campsite we discovered on our land last summer. Some teens intermittently occupied it last year but have not returned yet…we are hoping they do not. Because they had an unsafe fire in the pit last year with logs way over the rock borders. It would be devastating if our woods burned. We are assuming these are somebodies parents tools that were left behind.



A makeshift toilet???


And a hammock…The End! Good night ya’ll!
