Here are a few extra photos taken at the farm. Can you guess what this is? It's a small bee hive, made of bamboo. It was a gift to my daughter and her husband and is hanging on their barn. No bees yet. It's about 10" high.

When we came to visit the farm, I arrived bearing gifts. Most of them were made by me. Here is the baby quilt - tada! I put eggs on it because they are a symbol of new life, plus my daughter and her husband said they would be getting chicks for eventual egg-laying. And they're here, as you can see in my previous post! I embroidered a few chicks and a chicken on it. It was fun to do, and gender neutral because the baby is still being coy.
Here are some of the seedlings Jack planted, mostly heirloom tomatoes seen here. They will go into the ground after threat of frost has past. They're sitting on the counter of the mud room; you can see the old water pump in back. It actually still works, although they've made it automatic, so all you have to do is turn a small handle in back. They have delicious water from their own artesian well, and of course they can get their water out of regular taps elsewhere in the house, too!
They drink water out of a hanging water bottle dripper thingy for rabbits. There's also a hanging light to keep them warm.
They will all lay eggs in beautiful shades of brown.

You might be able to see that she is 7 months pregnant.
I'll post more photos tomorrow! I have a lot more to share. Now to take a quick walk around Cold Spring.
