This past weekend, the entire family was able to gather together at Double S Farms.
As I mentioned before, my brother-in-law was in town for final interviews for a new job. Although he was busy with meetings, we were all able to meet for Saturday breakfast on the farm.
I baked my Irish soda bread for the occasion and the kids couldn’t wait to eat eggs and sausage.
It was also time to check up on the new baby chicks and their new chicken coop….
As many of you know, my mother, sister and her family are residents of Double S Farms, and live only 5 minutes away from my home.
I love to share tidbits about desert ‘farm’ life, which really isn’t all that different from that of a normal farm. I enjoy posting about their resident chickens and dogs, their citrus, peach , plum and apple trees and of course, Mr. Toad.
Earlier this week, they received some new arrivals on the ‘farm’. My sister, Chicken Farmer, has her own blog and here is her latest post:
“I got a call early this morning from the post office that a box had arrived for me that was marked “live animals” and was making noises. Oliver and I high tailed it over to pick our special delivery up. The chicks came all the way to Arizona from Connecticut (1 day express) which seems like a pretty hefty trip for these tiny things. Because of this, I’m always a little apprehensive opening the box in case one or more didn’t make it. Fortunately, the box was very loud and I could feel the girls moving around inside.
