A VISIT TO THE COUNTRY


Last week Mollie and I drove up to "the farm".
She loves the farm but feels that she has
 to chase anything that moves.
(That doesn't make her very welcome).
You have to understand that with all the variety
of animals there are at the farm,
nobody chases anybody.
(except in play)
Everybody loves everybody !!!

We started out going to the local bedding supplier
in Mifflintown.
Bev helped load up the truck.We even had some
bags in the back seat.






The goaties will be very happy with their
new bedding.
( I don't know who else uses it.)






On our way home we passed through an area
that had been visited by a tornado this summer.
The destruction was amazing and included
a barn full of chickens that were pulverized.




Back at the farm we went to the barn
to unload the bedding.

We were greeted by various animals.
This is Moonbeam who has recently
been under saddle and he and Bev had several adventures.




I think this is Brad.
Isn't he handsome??




Meet Leo, the newest addition to the farm.
He's a very sweet kitty who has adjusted to
farm living without missing a beat.



This is Tylers playhouse..
Won't you come in for tea?




The tool shed painted to match the playhouse.




We had a yummy lunch of Greek chili and Hummus,
( I never tried Hummus but it's not bad. Not great
but not bad).
Oh, and the best, cream puff !!
( It had seen better days. Had sort of a lemony flavor :).

We headed back to the garden to harvest
a few late summer veggies.


Various types of peppers.



Carrots...



More peppers, cauliflower and cabbage...



Sunflowers seeds for the birds..

Alas, we ran out of time.
Didn't visit the turkeys, chickens or goats.
Didn't visit the tent....
Didn't go for a ride in the woods for pictures....
So much to do, so little time..
Guess I'll just have to go back !!
Thanks Bev for a nice day...
