Almost November!

The wind and rain are blowing down lots of limbs and leaves from the big oaks, a good inside day-so thought I had better update the blog!  We finally had a chick hatch under a broody Hen, so cute. She hatched her inside the Hen House, so is caring for the chick in the flock. All of the other Hens and Mr.Roo keep a wide berth as Mama Hen is very protective! I need to fix up a brooder area in the old hen house which has it's own little yard, but this time they seem to be doing OK.
Got fifty more daffodil bulbs planted, love them in the spring. Also picked all the acorn and winter squashes, and our 2 pumpkins. Also our walnut tree finally bore fruit this year and we have a crate of walnuts to dry, very happy about that! Also I have been cooking pumpkin cookies, apple pie and need to can applesauce as the apple tree is bearing heavily this year. Love this Fall season!
