Wrapping up the Harvest & The Chickens are out!

Krista and Ms. Rhode Island Red. This is our first time having the Rhode Island Red Chickens and they are a great addition to our flock. These ladies are great egg layers.

I am just about done canning and storing our harvest for the season.  I pressure canned our carrots from our garden last week and thought, OK, I am done for a bit.  I am planning on making jam with our berries, raspberries, huckleberries, strawberries, and Saskatoon berries, during the winter months.  But for now, they are all bagged and sitting in our freezer safe and sound.

Here chick, chick, chick! I love it when they all come running. Side Note: I left my chard and spinach for the ladies to eat. The greens are good for them.

Well, while I was walking our dog with my son I ran into a neighbor and he offered some apples from his trees and some Huckleberries he picked this year.  I could not refuse the offer.  My husband once said, You cannot turn down free food.  So after my show next week I will be making one last batch of applesauce.  Praise the Lord!  He provides.

So, now that I have harvested my garden, I put the chicken run together that leads them into our garden.  Our chickens are now a bunch of happy ladies.  Our garden is located in the front of our house, and so whenever I am outside I get to see the ladies and hear them cackle all over the place. Since we have been living off grid on our property, we have had chickens and I just love having the ladies.  They do not require allot of care and you get a present from them each day.
