Garlic and Carrot Harvest

These carrots are as tasty as they are beautiful! 
We will have some this evening at the Eldorado Farmers Market

The garlic is small but packs a big bite in its spiciness.

Water Catchment for Chickens

The layer hens now have a self contained water catchment system.

Even though they are only a hundred feet from our doorstep this is a vast improvement.

Shade Cloth and Micro Sprinklers

Got a good rain yesterday. Planted and set up about 2 dozen micro-sprinklers.
All four beds with shade cloth were uncovered during the rains. Hopefully this will help germination of lettuces, mustards, chard, tomatillos and flowers. 

Chicken Tractors

 We have five chicken tractors with a total of eighteen layers in them combined.

A chicken tractor is named so because of its ability to replace a traditional tractor by tilling, weeding, mulching, fertilizing and so on.
