Apparently, our hens are of the same opinion. As much as I like to feel that I have an opinion worth agreeing with, I would be much happier if our flock didn’t agree so vociferously. In fact, I’d be thrilled to share with you that they were happily greeting fall’s arrival. I’d be happy to tell you that they were still laying eggs as if summer would never end. In fact, you have no idea how happy I would be.
I can promise that I will take the cue that Mother Nature and our animals are trying so hard to give me. I’ll embrace fall and all that it brings with it. It truly is the birth of a new season, and I’m happy that I get to be a part of it.This fall, I’ll embrace hibernating season and spend my time preparing for another full year of seasonal transitions on the farm. I’ll do my best to see the beauty of the season instead of its limitations. I will admit, it doesn’t hurt that spring is only 154 days away.
