Oh happy day!! 🙂 God is so good and merciful and I just want to shout his name. Thank you God for giving me another wonderful day. The sun is shining here at Chick Commander Farm (formally known as The Brewer Homestead). I have created a Facebook page called just that Chick Commander Farm, if anyone would like you can find it on Facebook and “LIKE” it and start following me there too. I love sharing all the great things going on, on the homestead. The vegetable garden is going great. And we have made some great progress on the flower garden. The new Chickie babies are doing great.

I did start something new yesterday. I am needing to figure out which of my new laying hens are actually laying, so I put 1 hen in a big cage until she lays an egg, this will also help me in the future to know who’s eggs are who’s. I am keeping a chart o each day and who lays and who doesn’t. In starting this new business I have to be proficient and unfortunately I can not keep birds that are not producing. I can’t kill them either, so I will take them to the auction and sell them, I already have 2 in mind for this weeks auction. My parents also told me that I can use their space at the farmer’s market this weekend because they won’t be there so I am hoping to maybe get rid of the rest of my tomato plants. I still have almost 100 and I also have relish,pickles and peaches canned that I would like to sell. I will probably also make some homemade breads and some other things. I love being able to make stuff myself and sell it or share it with others.

It was a terribly soggy night last night, but today seems to be looking a lot better. We laid down stray for some of the birds because their pens got pretty flooded, but with the heat I’m sure they will dry up fast.

I hope everyone has a splendid and productive day!!!!

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.  Psalm 18:30
