Whoooow! What a summer! Thanks to everyone for making it such a success! I would like to follow that up with an apology for not keeping the blog up to date but there was simply not time! I haven't even been able to keep up with my day to day paperwork. With kids going back to school and such, things we are starting to catch up here! Well enough about that.
We hope that all of you had as successful a summer as we did and would like to fill you in on a few things that have been happening around here. The 1954 Farmall cub blew the head gasket the other day so is "in the shop," it had been running great right up until then but... We took the 25 chicks for the table in for butcher and they are delicious! The 16 laying hens are 13 weeks old now and will be able to move into the general population in about 5 weeks and should start laying eggs in about 7 weeks which is good, as coyotes got into the hen house and absconded with all of the laying hens but 5, so we are reduced to having to buy eggs from the neighbor who also has pastured chickens. The unknown exotic chicken that was delivered is a rooster and he is gorgeous! He is a "White Crested Black Polish" rooster. Donald and Daisy duck are doing fine and Daisy is back to laying one egg every day. The cats are doing fine.
We recently changed the decorations in Patty's Garden and will be remodeling the bathroom in a few weeks; it will have a two person shower and will lose the clawfoot tub. We are excited about this change.
It looks like the autumn colors should be good this year and we are planning to start offering wine and hors d'oevres on Saturday afternoon beginning on September 24 and going through the winter and spring so come and join us for that. We will also be running holiday specials as we usually do so keep your eye open as I plan to post those within a week. We are still running our weekday special of $109 for a non-jacuzzi and $119 for a jacuzzi room with a two night minimum stay for that pricing. We will also be catering dinners to groups again in the off-season so please keep us in mind for that. All for now, talk to you in a week!
