Welcome to the Hen House

Yesterday James brought home three chickens.  He bought a hen house for them, too, but it won’t be here until Wednesday and it won’t be set up until at least Thursday.  Meanwhile, they are in the dogs’ pen.  Which as one of our workers pointed out, is where we put them everyday with fresh bones.  So, the worker said, the dogs must think we have brought their treats to a whole new level.  The dogs would like that, but for now they are having bones in the front yard instead.

Today we have new workers arriving from Portland, Oregon via Phoenix, Arizona.  Hopefully they will be with us for some months.  The two women who are here now are leaving soon.  We are really glad for the overlap because they have been such amazing help, and will set the tone for the newcomers.

Their first full day will be just rest, then all four of them will pick the farm clean of coffee.  That way the newbies get to know the lay of the land.

So Magic Mountain Farm will be stuffed to the gills for the next few weeks.  Juli, the Dolphin, James, me, the three new chickens, the two new workers, the two ‘old’ workers, the dogs, the cats, Felix, Juli’s pet gecko, and all of the other creatures and plants, great and small.
