Rehoboth Farm

A good view of the potato bed.

This is our second try at growing millet and it's been doing quite well.

The social outcast of the chicken flock, we like to call him the "Lone Free Ranger".

All of our previous hives have swarmed, taking too many workers with them which caused the rest of the hive to die off.
So we're very thankful that this current colony has done very well over the past three years.

We expect to have plenty of corn before too long.

A overview of the garden.

Cool plantation!

We have an outcast rooster, too.

(I should say "had", as we're pretty sure he's been captured by a coyote.)

Did you get your outcasts name from Chicken Run?

Thanks for the comment Son3!

Sorry to hear about your rooster.

We did, in fact, get the name from chicken run.
