Spring Work

Spring has come and with it a super load of work here at Fitzgerald's Family Farm.   

The unseasonably warm weather has made for more bees swarming and I've captured two swarms already!  

Planting is going as fast as I can put things into the ground.

The pigs grow fast and I feed them all the time.  They're never full!

Adorable kittens play and I look for new homes for them.  

Some of the chickens get broody and I've started pitching them out of the coop and closing off the nesting boxes to them in the evenings.  

Rabbits grow their lovely angora fur.  I've harvested some and will have it at the Farmer's Market.

First Farmer's Market on the Courthouse Square in Coudersport this Friday, 2 p.m. until 7 p.m.!  

Now, I have to get outside.  There's work to do!

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

  1. Spring sure is a busy time! I have to take one of my hens off the nest box every night too. Hope you have a successful Farmer's Market! :)
