What’s new at Sakonnet Farm

It has been a VERY long time since I have written a blog post, hard to believe at one point I was posting every day. Now that there are no kids home with me, everything is different. We have been very busy on the farm this summer. We have new fencing, new animals, new plans…..
Please enjoy some pictures courtesy of Rick Barrette.

 Here is one of our Dominique chickens taking the stairs!

 Here is our turkey looking for lunch. They scratch out a spot then go back to look for what they have unearthed. This enables them to heat a healthy diet and therefore producing healthier food for us. It is also good for the soil, they are like natural rototillers!

 We currently have 8 ducks who all enjoy swimming in the pond we built for them.

 Rest time for the goats.

 This is Maggie, how could you not love that face!
 These are probably the most interesting flowers we have on the property, a poker flower. What an amazing picture of the hummingbird!
This was our herb garden just after Adam finished building it for me. We had much success with basil this year. We grew sweet, lime, and purple. We also grew catnip, lemon balm, thyme, lemon thyme, rosemary, parsley, and chocolate mint.
So there is a bit of catching up as to what we have been doing over the course of the summer. We also participated in the local farmer’s market and there are some wonderful pictures I just received. Maybe I’ll just have to post again tomorrow…..
