  My summer project for this year is a small backyard patio designed for an outside fireplace. I've was out working on the firepit area yesterday and boy the body got a little used to not exercising over the winter. Yeah, it was about a two Aleve night. It's amazing how quickly our body will loose it's muscle tone. Ah, well, today is another yard working day. That will teach it to get out of shape. Right? :0)

Have a great spring day.

I grew up in Montana, spent a few years in the Phoenix area. This is a happy medium. No 40 below, or 110 above! Where are you located now?

  What kind of chicken is that?
Hi Dirt Digger Farm - thanks for visiting our website for H & H Farms. You asked what breed the chicken in our farm photo is. She's a Speckled Sussex hen and her name is Stella. I see that you're just getting started in farming. Congratulations! Seriously, I can't think of anything more rewarding. Though we just 'established' our farm (for tax purposes) in 2011, my hubby and I have been farming all our lives. But we've just recently started making a semi-living doing so. We sell eggs, meat rabbits, produce, jams and pies. If you're just getting started, a world of possibilities are open to you - you must be so excited! Might I recommend that you consider raising heritage livestock and heirloom fruits and veggies like we do? (That's what H & H stands for: Heirloom & Heritage.) Heritage livestock are old American breeds that are endangered. You can find out more on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy website. We need people to raise these lovely breeds or the genetics and bio-diversity will be lost to us forever. Everyone knows that polar bears and panda bears are endangered, but people often don't realize that many domestic animals are endangered, too. We are just as productive with our heritage hens as the farmer down the road raising modern Sex Link hens. Likewise with heirloom veggies. Some of the old varieties are just incredible for their outstanding taste and disease resistance and many are specially adapted to their regions - you can likely find varieties that are perfectly suited to where you live. I recommend you look for seeds at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds or through Seed Savers Exchange - both excellent resources for heirloom plants. Your taste buds will thank you! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. You can email me at bonnie@farmgirlmedia.com or post a comment here through Hobby Farm. You might find some good ideas and inspiration on my website that celebrates the small farm movement and all that is good about locally grown food: www.farmgirlmedia.com

Best of luck to you!
