Yesterday I visited my parents on their farm in Wisconsin. It's not really a working farm. My father is retired and they lease their fields to other farmers and grow enough vegetables for themselves. They also have chickens. They also have a creek for fishing on the Nippersink. There is a foot bridge where the grandkids go to fish. My mom likes the color red. My brother gave my mom this funky pot last year for Mother's Day. My sister gave her this chocolate chicken from France.
There is a place on St John called Miss Lucy's, which has some great brunch and dinner specials. These are conch fritters with mango sauce. The conch is the pretty shell that people hold to their ear to hear the "waves". Anyway, eating right by the ocean is a treat in and of itself. A curious chicken sat on a chair at our table eyeing our dinner. Here is her little one. There were also goats running around the property next to the restaurant. Here is a pic of a cute baby goat.
Sunday I was visiting my parents' farm in Wisconsin. I also happened to pick some vegetables to take home while there. When my mother let the chickens out, they headed straight toward the veggies and a few even took some pecks out of the tomatoes. According to my mother, the chickens LOVE tomatoes.
I was at my parent's farm in Wisconsin over the weekend. The sunflowers and Queen Anne's Lace were in full bloom. Also the yarrow and black eyed Susan. You know, I just realized how many of the flowers are either purple or yellow. Anyway, things are growing like crazy out there -- including the chickens.
