One great thing about living on a farm is taking a walk and seeing what's new on the property! Country living is dynamic...nothing is ever the same from day to day. Not only that, but you never know what you might find on one of your walks!
We recently stumbled across this empty turtle shell and just had to take a picture to show everyone how cool it is!
Speaking of new things...we have several new babies here at Cox Family Farm!
We recently welcomed our first registered Jersey calf born on the farm. Everyone, please say hello to "Alice's Happy Rosa!"
But this girl's not alone, because we also now have Andrew. Andrew is his name, following mom is his game! And boy, we all know what that means...!
But calves aren't the only thing "popping up" here on the farm! Strawberries are coming soon to a basket near you...hopefully we will have enough to make jam, too. Yum!! Just thinking about those ripe, red berries makes my mouth water!
With all these babies being born and new plants growing and blooming, you know what must be just around the corner...SPRING!!! We can't wait for spring, but along with all the warmer weather comes planting time! Our greenhouse is really SPROUTING and soon we'll be moving out of the greenhouse and into freshly turned rows.
Green house is growing,
Spring is near...
If you feel like planting,
Give a cheer!!
We can always use the help!!! And there's nothing quite like getting your hands into warm, fragrant dirt as a way of welcoming the spring!
Last, but not least our hens are doing their part here at Cox Family Farm!! We are now getting about 14 dozen eggs a week!!! Who has been enjoying them? Do you eat them just for breakfast, or do you have a favorite quiche recipe you might like to share??
"Green eggs and ham, Sam I am...!!"
As you can see in the picture, most of our hens lay eggs with brown shells. But some of our hens lay green eggs, which is very cool!
As always, Cox Family Farm is a busy place!! We've always got something new and exciting going on. We'll share more with you soon!!!
