The Ball is Rolling

My Certified Naturally Grown application has been turned in and awaiting approval. My inspection is tentatively scheduled pending my new job’s work schedule (hello farm store discount!).

Sunflower, squash, tomato, and pea seeds have sprouted. Too bad I didn’t get the wood for the beds yet. Yikes. Not sure what I was thinking other than I can’t wait to get the plants going.

Anne’s possible birth window opens soon (previous owner didn’t keep track). The lamb will be retained. We still have to get a raptor-proof lambing jug up.

Chicken and turkey coop building will be right after so I can order chickens and turkeys. I’m not sure if we’ll stick with Bourbons. I may check the Livestock Conservancy and go with an endangered breed.

I’m looking at new marketing materials since most of mine were created for Maine.

Getting a storm shelter is high on the list after we had to sit through 30 pmh sustained winds with tornado watches a week ago.

We’re getting the ball rolling.

Oh yeah, and we actually have a domain now.

Making a Graphic

So… I suck at graphics, but we are going to attempt to make one for our farm to put on labels, website, FB and a sign.  All I know is I want our name plus all four seasons shown somehow.  Maybe at least one chicken, goat, turkey and maybe a Jacobs sheep (future planned addition).  We were going to do a picture of the house/front of property with four sections (each representing a season) until we realized we’d have to redo it when we finally get to move.  We don’t want to do that.  It has to be something that we can keep no matter where we go.

One son thinks he can do it, but I don’t know.  We’ll see.  Right now we’re tossing ideas around.  Think I can get all the critters together for a group picture?
