The chickens are back in full swing laying mode, and the farm is getting over a dozen eggs a day now. We also have a goose who is brooding on a couple eggs and we are hopeful for some baby goslings. The male goose is very vigilant and runs to her side to keep watch when anyone gets too close. God built animals with good instincts and it's amazing to see how they care for each other!
The grass is turning green and we are starting to build compost piles in the garden. The chickens, geese and ducks are loving the abundance of bugs they find in the field and are getting lots of nutrients from that. We also have some seedlings started indoors. So far we have tomatoes, sweet peppers, basil, oregano, and parsley. There is nothing like having your own homegrown veggies and herbs. Maintaining a garden takes a lot of dedication and patience but it is worth it.
We believe God will provide for us and we see Him follow through with caring for us every day. "Consider the ravens; they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!" (Luke 12:24) God loves us more than anything, so if He cares this much for the birds, imagine how much He cares for you. We are more precious to Him than anything in this world.
