Life in May

Life is in full swing here at Girasole Farm. 
Remember the ORCHARD we planted several years ago? It's finally getting big enough for us to reap the benefits of fresh fruit.  Plums, Pears, Peaches, Nectarines, Apples, Persimmons, Pomegranates. 
We've added chickens to the farm this year. 
I can hardly wait for them to start laying eggs. 
Ah yes- the staple of the Farm, horses. 
The 'boys' are doing well, and are fulfilling their duties as field ornaments. 
It wouldn't be home without them. 

The vegetable garden is small again this year, using the four small raised beds from last year. 
Just the basics, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Isley & Jalepeno peppers, Radishes, and some Carrots. 
The rest I need comes from our local farmers in the area. 

Everything else at the moment seems well here.
