Around the Farmette ........................................

I'm amazed at the butterflies the sunflowers have attracted !

Hey , there's a new kid in town (LOL).

Wet guineas , aren't happy guineas.

Keeping watch !!

We have a second broody guinea hen , so we put the little holding pen over her nest. I close the door at night and leave it open during the day. Hopefully it will keep the predators at bay.

I thought the problems with the guineas and chickens had worked out , but sometimes the guineas won't let the chickens in the coop to the nesting box. So they've found an alternative.

Dh bought the plastic piping so we could run a waterline to the chicken and goat pens. It's been so dry that he hasn't attempted to lay the waterline yet , so I put the pipe on top of the hay to keep the chickens off the hay.
That didn't work so well , it's actually made the perfect nest , so they've been using it when the guineas are on the warpath and won't let them in to lay.

And ........ look at this old beauty that hubby brought home , he's planning to sell the parts. But , I've taken a liken to that old truck and it's nostalgic look , so we may fix it up in the future. It would make a beautiful old farm truck , don't you think ?

Hope you have a " Wonderful " weekend !!

~ Be Blessed ~

It looks like the chickens are quite the problem solvers! At least you know where to look for them. I love the look of the truck. Every farm needs an old truck like that.

That would be the perfect farm truck. I want a farm truck, and I don't even have a farm.

Oh, I totally agree. What a great Farm Truck!

Your garden has done so well this summer. And it looks like all the kiddos have had a blast at Grandma's place as well. :0)
