We had many friends, family and neighbors stop by the farm this weekend. Michael’s nephews chased chickens and pigs for much of the day on Saturday and Ryan’s aunt calmed the critters with Reiki on Sunday.
Best of all, new friends Julie, Ray and Kendra came for a visit after seeing the article about Crescent Run in the local paper… just as we were about to start work on the greenhouse. It was assembled by a crew in the fall, but a venting panel that had not been secured with a hinge flew off in the wind. It turns out that Ray has done a lot of research on these geodesic greenhouses and was eager to lend us a hand to replace the panel!
Our new project is clearing out a home for the pigs in the woods adjacent to the paddock. We have to take out a section of rock wall, clear out fence lines and remove some thorny brush. Luckily, we know some young boys with machetes who are eager to help out… and we received an extensive first aid kit for Christmas.
Anyone in need of a pig fix?
