Save Money in this Sunday's paper

The 78 broiler chicks are growing up in the trampoline box.

Besides the mud and slop, I got three days left to work at my job next week. I had planned to stick it out until next Friday, but I got 100 day-old chicks that are supposed to arrive Thursday morning.

Well, I have done it. Put in my notice at work. I will be back on our farm in a couple of weeks.

Our two future sows, Olive and Pickle, got to go on their first trailer ride today.

Rain delays the garlic planting at Laughing Owl Farm.

We picked up over 1,000 pounds of boneless pork on Thursday morning. The $900-plus processing cost was a bit of a sticker shock but they were big hogs.

We are going to move our patch. Seriously. Maybe not next week but sometime this winter.

We took off a few days last week to go to Pawleys Island, S.C. I then took three days off work to goof around on the farm and finished harvesting the popcorn.

The popcorn looks awesome, but it will take a few weeks to dry down to a 12 percent moisture level to make it poppable.
