The search is over!!!

     Guess what?!!! Sweet Summer Farm has finally become a reality! We closed on it Monday, August 3rd, and celebrated with cake. We have now bought a farm that is 6.9 acres, half pasture half woods. It has a two sheds, an old barn, and an Appalachian farmhouse that is about 100 years old. It also has a beautiful creek that runs through the property. We have already ordered chickens.  We got six hens and one rooster they are all Silver Lace Wyandottes. They have a beautiful design on their feathers and they lay the same eggs as Buff Orpingtons. We have three Buff Orpingtons (Our Three Girls) and we love their eggs. I am really excited to try this new breed of chickens. We have also bought six blueberry plants, four raspberry plants, one pear tree, and lots of flowers. I still can't believe we have a farm! Oh, we'll have to get to work. See you later!
