May and June have been very busy at e-I-e-I-o and I haven’t been posting like I intended.  We have had lots of visitors, my sister Barb and her husband John came to visit for a week to get their fill of down on the farm life.  Followed by plenty of very good friends and our new friend Jenny Agnew from St. Louis Magazine,

We have been working hard to get our garden going after a very wet and chilly spring.  I think things are finally coming together.  All of my flowers are planted and growing very well.

We received our Thanksgiving turkey chicks in the mail last week, I can’t believe how fast the year is going.

Our replacement laying hens are about ready to join there friends in the big chicken coop.  They should start laying their first eggs in August.  Our established hens continue to lay very well and the eggs are awesome as usual.  Everyone who comes to visit leaves with a beautiful dozen eggs to enjoy at home.

We have two more litters of rabbits growing but unfortunately lost one of the mothers.  We don’t know what she died of, but we were very sad, she was a sweetie.  I guess we will have to find a replacement.  Matt has butchered the first two litters of bunnies and they were sold to Sidney Street.  They were fed lots of carrots and lettuce and received plenty of attention and love.  I am sure Kevin used his artistry in creating some amazing dishes with them.

I have posted an add to sell Mary Jane (the miniature donkey) on Craig’s List. It is time for her to find a home before her mom Skittles is due to have a baby in September and before she turns 1 year old.  It will be sad to see her go, but we can look forward to another bundle of joy arriving this fall.

Here are some random pics from around the farm.

I am going to try and be better and update more regularly.
