Let Us Eat Lettuce!!

In the last week of March, we planted Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce, and today we HARVESTED!  We have had lots of frosts but our lettuce has survived them all. Tonight we are going to have some delicious salads with our wonderful greens. 

Also, when we took off Dolly's brace earlier this week, all her toes were straight!
We got ourselves a show chicken! 
We are up to $45 dollars in sales and donations for Miraclefeet! WOO-HOO!  With $50, Miraclefeet can cover the cost of two braces. Hopefully we can reach that by the end of the month.

It is fun zooming to the top of the hill!
And no, the two of us are
not aloud to go joyriding alone.
Yesterday we received the gift of the year, A FOUR-WHEELER! Our Grandma and Grandpa Kasal knew we had been desperately wanting one for the farm. They weren't using it anymore, so they gave it to us! We promise to keep all four wheels on the ground. Thank You, Grandma and Grandpa!

We have gotten lots of comments about correcting our chick’s crooked toes. The casting method we used is a lot like the Ponseti Method used to treat clubfoot in children. Our friend, Chesca, is the Executive Director of Miraclefeet. Miraclefeet is a non-profit organization created to deliver simple, affordable and effective treatment to children born with clubfoot in developing countries.
We have decided that for every dollar we earn selling eggs this month, we will donate the same amount to Miraclefeet. So far we have earned $17. With only $25 Miraclefeet can provide casts for up to 10 children! Want to learn more? Go to: http://www.miraclefeet.org/index.php
FYI, we just took off Dolly’s brace and all of her toes except for one are straight! The only one that is not fixed is MUCH better! We are going to put two of her toes back in the brace for one more week.
