The Best from the Farm Photos this Month
I have gathered the best of September farm photos together, in this post. There are so many different ways to write blog posts. Photo journalism is one method. Since I am really happy when I am taking photos of our farm and the animal residents, it seemed time to revive my monthly photo update. As a blogger and contributor to other publications, I spend a good bit of time each week writing informational pieces. I love what I do and it fits right in with my mission to encourage people to take small steps into homesteading or self reliant living.
It’s also wonderful to write for no reason at all. To share just what made me happy during the previous days. I hope you will enjoy these posts too. I would love to hear from you about which photos touch home for you. Which ones made you smile, or remember, or even cry, (happy tears I hope!)
Even though we have many different types of livestock on the farm, I tend to write mostly about chickens. This past week I wrote about what to do with the trash and waste that piles up when raising chickens.
King, our white rock rooster sure grew up to be a big boy! And at the other end of the size spectrum we have little bantams, Audrey and Bogie who make the cutest little couple ever.
Lily wanted to show off her Fall haircut after Farmer Ann came to shear our Pygora goats. We did not shear the sheep this fall because I wanted to see how the fleece is after a full year of growth.
Polly before her fall hair cut looking sweet and cute and fluffy! We use the goat fiber and the fleece from the sheep to produce a specially blended yarn from our farm. It is garment soft and lovely to work with, takes dye nicely and will be available again in late fall, or early winter.
The ducks wanted to make sure they were represented here. We sure have had some rainy weather this week. Good only for ducks at this level. It ended quicker than predicted and the hurricane turned out to sea before reaching land so all ended with out any major flooding or damage on the farm.
Keep Reading because my Favorite Farm Photos from this month are still to come!
Running themes in my life this month were cleaning out storage areas in our home. We found a huge cache of vintage canning jars! Eggs are getting more plentiful now that this year’s pullets are laying consistently and with the fall molt for the older girls, beautiful feathers decorated the ground.
Our newest farm buddy is Six. I do not know why his name is Six but that is what it is. He is very cute and he lives with Layla.
Many of my photos are available through our handmade shop on the website. Sold as postcards, you can purchase individually or in sets. If you don’t see the one you want, please let me know. Some are just released and I am working on getting them added to the shop.
Pumpkins are popping up everywhere! I love all pumpkins and couldn’t wait until October to start decorating for fall. The chickens have their own style of carving pumpkins
Are you ready to see my favorites from this month’s Farm Photos?
I think Basil and I made a connection with this photo. He was looking right at me! I like to think that he is now accepting me as the new shepherdess. He had a wonderful previous shepherd and I have big shoes to fill. Basil and his flock mate Patchouli joined us in September and rejoined Annie,and Bella. Joey is from the same farm but he has been here for over a year. Millie, Brin, and Ike round out the flock.
The bucket of eggs. What can I say. I have a weakness for egg photos!
Snapped this image quickly at a tractor show and I really like it. The owner had gone to grab a much smaller flag before the parade so I was lucky to catch the image with the large drapey flag.
Thanks for visiting today and letting me share my favorite photos from the month with you. I don’t know if I will do this monthly or more often but look for more photo posts in the future.
