First of all, hello to everybody. I didn't post for a while, i was way too busy. The work started on the fields, at home i have the chickens and the ducks and the garden, of course. I still cannot upload pictures. My daughter sent a card reader to me, but it is not working and it is brand new (i wish i had a few emoticons here to explain better how do i feel). So, i'm still not able to post pictures yet. And i have thousands of pictures. I would like to show you my garden, where i planted 177 tomato plants, 130 pepper plants, cabbage, eggplants, anion, zucchini, watermelon, melon, raspberry tree, bilberry, white gooseberry, blackberry, carrots, radishes, and other that i don't remember now. I would like to show you my chickens and my ducks, which grew up so fast!!!! Man, the ducklings are not ducklings anymore and they are not one month old yet!!!! I still love them so much. I love ducks, what can i say? Probably that's why i bought 40 more yesterday. They're adorable!!! My target for this year is 100 ducks and 200 chickens. I would love to get a few turkeys too (about 10) and some geese and some guineas. We'll see. I know they mean a lot of work and i'm exhausted already. I spent the last 2 days whit my chickens because they are sick. They've got coccidiosis and i lost about 20 of them in the last 2 days. I hope i saved the rest of them. Interesting, only the layers were affected, the meaties are fine. I'll let you know what happened farther.

  1. Boy, you have your work cut out for you with all the chickens, ducks and huge garden. Take care of yourself! Also enjoy all the great food you will be getting!

  2. Joan, this is the first year when i have a vegetable garden and i grow so many birds. And i love it. I start at 6am and finish at 10pm. Probably i exaggerated a little bit, but i want to produce myself most of our food and to buy from stores as little as possible.
