  Not really, we have this loger head that keeps coming to the house. We put him in a mineral bucket and drive him to the river to be released and sometimes, our son wants to "feed" him, I've told him a million and one times that iceburge lectues is out of the question and now he keeps romaine lectues in the icebox. I keep on telling him that he's not a pet and we are doing the right thing by getting him back to the river. 9 yr olds...LOL.

What fun to open my email this morning and find that you have visited our new listing here on Hobby Farm. This is such a nice extension to one of my favorite magazines. As the weekend approaches my husband and I are busy harvesting for the farmers market in Olympia. With our large greenhouse and small hoophouses (caterpillar style); all unheated, we still have a good selection of tomatoes and bell peppers as well as the outside crops. Soon our Western Washington winter rains will arrive putting an end to most outside jobs so we are trying to get as much clean up work done as possible. Always something to do on a farm no matter what the size. Isn't it great!

  Thank you for visiting our farm page. Wow, what an interesting thing you do, and so gracious! I'm finding there is such a wonderfully diverse community on Hobby Farms.
About our name, Iron Oaks Farm, we live in Oakland County where the predominant tree is the oak, my husband is a blacksmith and the name of his forge is Iron Oaks Forge, when we started the farm we incorporated everything into the one name.

Come visit me, Iron Oaks Farm.

They are all fine. We found a family that wanted both colts and the filly! They have moved the colts and will be back next weekend for the filly. We have moved all the horse to an area with a catch pen, so it should be easier, on everyone this time!

  Good Morning!
My son has always wanted a monitor, but the power goes off, so often, we decided it wasn't a good idea.
