Jenna at Cold Antler Farm did a roll call on the things she has on here farm and then I saw it as well at Saving the Big Money so I thought I would do one here as well. Yup, just copying them. At first it kind of felt like bragging but then I thought how hard it is to keep up with all the blogs I have and what things they have and are doing so maybe it isn't bragging but just another way to connect.
The animals are easier to do than the plants everyone listed. I have been here for years, not even sure I can remember everything that is planted here.
-2 people one who works full time and one almost full time (35 hours a week)
-1 daughter- soon to be going to college
-2 dogs-protection but mostly companionship
-Approx 10 cats and assorted kittens (we have only seen two but one other mama has some somewhere)-I suppose rodent control but mostly companionship.
-2 pigs- meat
-10 meat chickens
-5 hens and 2 roosters- eggs
-11 ducks 1 duckling- eggs, possibly meat eventually
-1 pheasant- it is just there, pet- I suppose
-Approx 30-49 quail (never have counted)- meat, eggs
-10 bantam chickens--eggs, brooding
I'll take a stab at the food plants
-9 raised beds
-1 plum tree
-1 peach tree
-1 lemon tree
-1 pomegranate tree
-1 Chinese chestnut
-2 pecan trees
-2 hazelnut bushes
-2 blueberry bushes-none lived from last year
- Assorted brambles- blackberries and raspberries
-2 grape vines
-3 fig tress
-Strawberries- a few have lived
-1 quince (it has never been more than ornamental however)
That is pretty much all that I can think of besides I guess I have been lazy enough this morning. I have a really good sinus infection coming on and it allows me to wake up with migraines every morning just plain keeps me tired lately. You all have a great day. Hopefully this weekend I'll get more work done.
