Random Pictures around the Farm

Just some random pictures that I wanted to share with everyone. If you have dial-up you are gonna hate me. Sorry.

View from up the drive way a little piece.

Looking down through the front yard.

Nieghbors colt that I just had to add.

Me running the tractor.

Nice pic of the pond that is right beside the house. It's larger than it looks. Stocked 150 catfish a few weeks ago.

Ducks taking it easy.

Mountian Laurel in bloom beside the drive way.

Blackberry's in bloom too.

View from about halfway up the drive.

My father-in-law, Ken, in the for ground, me in the middle and Katie near the back planting corn.

Tried some potato's in old tires this year and man are they doing great. Never found a bug on them either. The leaves are picture perfect.

View from one side of the corn rows.

The goats thought that I was bringing feed.

Compost pile working.

Hey, Chris. I have dial-up, and I don't hate you... I love you man *sniff sniff* :)

Your pictures are awesome. You have a beautiful place. What a nice pond! Really enjoyed seeing your place. :)

I might have to try those potatoes in tires thing, since the station wagon needs tires pretty bad. I've heard of growing peppers that way.

I was originally planning to grow beans next to the potatoes, since they are supposed to ward off each other's pests. But the peas are taking so long to produce... Instead, I'll probably do a "two sisters" planting of beans amongst the corn. :)

Take care,

I was so sick of bugs, that I'm doing my potatoes in pots this year, too. They're doing good so far, though not as far along as yours! Thanks for the pics. Gen-IL Homesteader

Ron, Thanks so much man. We really love it here. Man if I have potato's anywhere close to as pretty as the vines I will be planting this way every year. Plus it's a great use for bad tires.

Anonymous, Thanks for your comments. I love to hear from folks all over the net. Come back soon.
