Our family is participating in a great community supported garden program up at Sunset View Farms in Lafayette. My focus is on the 20×30 plot we’re tending, while Claire is enjoying her time chasing around the chicken and sneaking worms into her pockets. Here’s the cast of characters so far:
The goat. Claire’s favorite mammal on the farm and her curiosity (and love of grass and clover) gives us lots of face time with this critter.
The hen. I’ll have to snap another photo of her as this chick spends little time in her enclosure. I have never met a more patient bird, of course Claire is collecting all kinds of bugs for her so that’s probably why she tolerates Claire’s “love.”
The sheep. Shy and skittish they don’t much care for Claire yet. We’re working on bribing them. Baaaaaa!
This is a teaching farm and there is a fantastic nature playground where Claire explored her balancing skills and did lots of jumping.
The chicks. Our source of eggs this summer. They make the cutest cheeping noise and are so soft! I can’t wait to see the blue eggs from one of the breeds in there. Look at that little one jumping in the right corner!
“I want that one, Mommy!”
And lastly, some shots of the play area –
