First Egg!!

One of my Rhode Islands layed there very first egg today!! I've been waiting for this day for a couple weeks now. Dean and I already fried it up and ate it and I must say fresh eggs are the BEST!!

Yesterday I was able to pick a few ripe blueberries from three of my blueberry trees!! I've never been more excited! Dean came running into the house yelling "Michelle come here quick!" So I went running outside panicking that the dogs may have gotten out again; to discover that he had found riped blueberries!

We've also had lots of our wild blackberries and raspberries ripening as well and there are still tons more of those that are not riped!! I love being able to step into my yard and pick fresh deliscous no chemical sprayed fruits!! My dogs also seem to enjoy them! I first discovered that my black raspberries were ripe because I went to check what my Lab Asa was doing over by the fence and sure enough he was eating all the fresh berries he could reach!

This is our first summer in our house and we've discovered lots of berries and plants we never knew we had. Just the beginning of this month we discovered we had a 50ft cherry tree at the back of our property!! Though to get to it you have to tackle more blackberry bushes! Hopefully this will be another project later this year.

So this last week Dean and I have been super busy working on our property. Our property is only two acres but a lot of that land is taken over by black berry bushes. Everyone has been telling us to get a goat but we don't have a barn nor shed of any sort to keep a goat during the winter or at night. So we've been tackling the stuff ourselves. We are so excited that we've cleared the area where we plan on putting up our new fencing and where our pig pin will be come spring. We were looking into getting a pig now, however we feel that it is better for us to wait. I was a little disappointed however I know it will be for the best. So now I have something to look forward to come spring;  raising my first livestock animal! I've been wanting to post pictures of the work we've done but our camera charger is missing and my phone just sucks!( phone is turning 4!)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
