We care for this little acreage along Highway 1 in Johnson County, Iowa. If you come by to visit you can meet a few kids - both of the two legged and four legged variety- a couple of dogs and a whole lot of chickens. And two fairly tired but happy parents.

Life on the farm
Poppy and her first egg
We have eleven chickens. Six big hens, four little ones and a rooster. Yesterday we got our first egg from a smaller chicken. We also got new nesting boxes; a little upgrade from the cardboard boxes! We harvested a wagon load of huge zucchinis. We cut off the tops of two and hollowed them out and stuck our arms inside them. We also made some delicious zucchini brownies and bread.
