Guest starring...

We've really enjoyed having Mollie's family here for the past few days. They've helped us cross LOTS of tasks off our summer list. Here are some scenes from their visit.

Here's Sam - our IT guy and Cheif Chicken Herder. Sam stayed with us during their trip and is happy to report that he didn't have any supernatural experiences upstairs. (Some people claim the upstairs of the farmhouse is haunted...Sam doesn't buy it.)




Farmhand Mom fed the calf during their trip. She also helped with lots of other odd jobs around the farmhouse.


Farmer John is on the ladder, and "Uncle" John is holding the ladder. He keeps a garden here and helps us with lots of odds and ends - sometimes we just couldn't run this place without him. He also makes lots of tasty jams, jellies, breads, dips, cookies and juice.



Farmhand Dad helped with all kinds of projects while he was here. But, this is my favorite picture. He's in the chicken coop removing some of the nesting boxes. This was taken on his first Monday of retirement!


It takes a lot of time and a lot of hands to keep the farm running. Thanks to all our guest stars for their hard work!
