Spring is close by

The chill of each Tennessee morning is getting replaced with more regularity by a warm afternoon.  It is these hints that remind me that spring is right around the corner.  That and the cheep of our little chicks.  That's right! We have some new baby chicks that are going to provide some of the free range fresh eggs we came to love in our old farm.  As with all the other animals on the farm these guys will be out on pasture and be exposed to green grass and fresh air.

Now is also the time where projects get rolling.  We are currently building a movable pen to house our heritage turkeys and trying out some raised garden beds in an attempt to grow some carrots.  With the clay based soil we have that has been a pipe dream.  Thanks to I found a cheap plan to make these.
