  Thanks for visiting Myrtle Hill
Our farm photo was "snitched" from Google Earth; we've cleared a few acres since, though.

I love snow- we actually had a 0.5 inch snowfall in February; a once in a decade event here in the Florida panhandle.

Thanks for dropping by my page. We tried to have a few ducks last year, but only one egg from a dozen hatched and then one day the duck was just gone. My husband wasn't too enthused about ducks, so I don't know if we'll try again.

  Thanks for visiting my "farm."
I milk all of my does from the time they freshen in the late winter or spring until the late fall. I used to milk year round, but have a condition which makes being out in the cold for long period very difficult. There's nothing like fresh goat milk! My chickens love it. too.

  Are you Keeping Warm?
Thinking of you as our days down here in Kentucky cool off, hopefully this time for the real fall coming on. Can't wait to get some snow . . . I want to go sledding!

  Winter Issues
Thank you for the wonderful suggestions on how to keep my guineas warm. I have never had any outside/outbuilding animals before so really am not good at figuring out what will be good and what won't be good for them. I did know about the fresh water, bedding, and food. Apparently, the guineas can be out in the snow so I guess they aren't as fragile as I'm making them out to be, huh? We were thinking of perhaps putting a small heater in the storage room . . . there is a screened window between the storage room and the coop itself . . . but again don't know the ins and outs of it all. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great, too. Sounds like your days are still nice as could be for your area. Is this weather usual? Because we are having unusually warm weather for November in the Kentucky hills. Take care and thanks again for the suggestions.

Cool, or should i say coooold!!! LOL You are so lucky not to have to worry about tick-borne diseases. Is it the cold weather that keeps ticks at bay? How do you keep your animals during the winter months? I'm a little worried about my guineas over this winter . . . we could get some severe weather here, don't really know since we just moved here in November 2008. I'm going to try heat lamps to keep it a little warm in the coop for the flock. Any help you could give me on this matter would be great. Thank you.

Thank you for posting to my site. I had to come see yours. Love the picture! And wonder where you are? Doesn't say in your profile info. Yes, we have only just begun our venture in the hills of Kentucky, as I see you too have just begun your farming venture. Building seems to be the daily concern these days. The next big build will be a work shed with a storage area above.

Why no guineas to add to your flock? They are great bug control (we're worried about lyme disease from deer tick) and wow can they clean an area of weed seed in no time. Hopefully, our weeds will be less next year and we'll be able to have more grass.

Hope you continue to come by our site. Have a great day!
