King Corn

Jacob has posted a review of the movie King Corn on his blog, Music City Moo Dude. He also posted some photos from his Alabama trip. Check it out... Jacob's a very entertaining writer.

Hoss-Training and CSA

Hoss is really sweet, and I don't think he would ever hurt a chicken on purpose, but he plays roughly, and might injure one accidentally. So, Jacob and I have been trying to train him to be very gentle with them. I'm not sure he gets it completely, but he's improving steadily. Mom took some pictures of one of our training sessions.

Our CSA begins tomorrow! It rained all morning, so we had to harvest all the veggies this afternoon. Here's what this week's basket looks like:

Farm News

With all the rain we've been getting, the garden is growing by leaps and bounds. We've been planting like crazy around here - tomatoes, watermelons, squash, cucumbers, and lots of other good stuff, including a gazillion heads of lettuce. For those of you wondering how many "a gazillion" is, it is approximately 2000. Yeah, that sounds like a lot, even to me!

We are 10 days and counting from the beginning of our CSA. Here's a picture of part of the garden.

Can you guess what Jacob did on Saturday?
Yep. He played paintball with some of his buddies. They were very nice to let me take some pictures.
In other news, we got all the siding on our house! A big thank you to all the people who helped us finish up this project.
As you can see, the house is a nice monotone gray now.

Jacob is heading down to Alabama to help with clean-up from the tornadoes. He and two of his friends are leaving at 4:00 tomorrow morning. I'm sure he'd appreciate your prayers for safe travel and that he would be a blessing to the families he is going to be helping.
