Road Trip!

This morning we decided that a road trip to some nurseries was something we needed to do as well as get some really wonderful farm fresh eggs …

We use to always go to Putney’s nursery, remember that?  but Jane Putney suddenly died last November and the nursery is no longer open.

Pleasanton Valley Nursery

Chickens!

Three day old piglets with their momma

We had a good morning.  Mike bought a tremendous amount of tomatoes, 48 plants, he got onions, yellow and red and of course potatoes.

I got more stuff for flower boxes and flower beds and of course we secured Sunday breakfast with the incredible eggs from Mr. Powers and Patti

Ham and Eggs

Oh today was a fun day.  All the guests were here and taken care of, Mike and I felt we could leave the Wayfarer for a few hours.

We drove around the neighborhoods to see the many, many garage sales.  We ended up going to Putney’s to get some more plants for a project which I will show you tomorrow. On the way to Putney’s, we stopped at the farm of one of Mike’s clients right on Glovers Lake Road.  They sell eggs and we love buying eggs :mrgreen:

We got a tour through the place and I took pictures:

We met Darla the bloodhound.  Oh she loved seeing us and got all excited but as soon as I got “too close” to the big momma pig and the little ones, she wasn’t so happy anymore.

Do yourself a favor on click on each picture at least once.  You’ll really see the details then!

Born on Mother’s Day, these little things were too cute for words

more piglets 🙂

These little piglets were born 2 days ago.  This sow had 11 little pigs 😯

Chickens – I know now that, yes, they do stink. Peewwwww. But the eggs are sooooo good
At first they were all outside. As soon as I pulled out the camera, they disappeared and I had to hunt them down and take the picture through a hole in the screen.

Some of the biggest tires I have ever seen.

Mules!  wow they were pretty.  I talked with them for a few minutes and they agreed, it was interesting to meet each other, hehe

We don’t know what kind these dogs were. Something Australian…

The duck pond

And eggs :mrgreen:

I had a great day, don’t you think?
