Morning Update

They predicted frost last night and they were right. I went out to check on my tender plants and here's what I found. This is a tomato plant that wasn't covered.
It didn't make it. So I pulled back the tarps on the rest of the tomatoes and this is what I found. They made it!
My main garden is in an area that is more prone to frost, so when I pulled back the tarp on the pumpkins, this is what I found.
You win some, you lose some. I still had frost in the front yard at 9:30 this morning.
I don't think I've shown you my new chickens. Well, I've had them for about four months. They're cream brabanters,
which took me two years to finally find. Here's a couple of pictures of my turkeys. I'm saving the breeding pair, the rest will be butchered in a month and a half. They're Red Bourbons. I think I'd like to try Royal Palms next.
Yep, there are ducks in there, too. I picked up two sheep this week. They're both wethers and very affectionate. They're for fiber and for company for my Angora goat. They were raised in a petting zoo, so you can imagine how affectionate. I cannot think of names for these two. I've asked friends and family and no one has been able to come up with names. Here's a couple, not very good, pictures of them.
That's the update from our place. Enjoy this wonderful fall weather. Have a blessed day. Glory Farm

Barbara,
My tomatoes are still struggling to ripen. We're being blessed with summer like weather for the next week.

Pam,
I like Card and Spin, but I think I'm going to go with Hat and Mittens. Great names.

Kristina,
It can be. :)
