Today my daughter, grandson and I went to Ideal Poultry in Cameron, TX to pick up the geese my daughter ordered a couple of months ago. The first time we drove to Ideal Poultry was when she was a little girl, around the same age that her son is now. Over the last few years I made it a point to go to the Livestock Conservancy site and chose an appropriate breed for my site and situation and then go to the Ideal Poultry site, which is just over an hour’s drive from where I live now, and order chicks that both needed preserving and could be obtained from a local breeder. When the chicks were hatched we made a day of it and drove out to pick up the new chicks. Now she has a child of her own and the three of us drive out to Cameron a few times each spring to pick up new stock for the farm. I am so very, very grateful that she has chosen to do a similar thing with her son that I did with her. I am truly blessed.

I paint pictures that record some of the things I do on my my permaculture farm that I started in October 2016, in Smithville, just east of Austin, Texas View all posts by libbypetersart
