Raquel and I were in the Temecula area today touring one of our very favorite farms and I should say, one of my main suppliers of weekly produce. No sooner did we arrive in the driveway of the main residence than I spied a pen full of two litters of piglets. Though they were so cute and messy as a litter, I singled out a few for photos; all I could say was “Babe, look here”~
Eating the citrus rinds and fresh greens, I thought of the little Wheeeee Piglet on the tv commercials, and what can I say, I just wanted to take the second litter (less than one month old) and scrub them up in the sink, they were SO tiny and SO cute….
Across the way we found the fruit trees in beautiful bloom. I forgot to ask where I can buy the lime paint for the bases, for some beams at home~
I think these are mostly peach trees, the doughnut peaches I remember at the market last summer; the blossoms are perfection~
Under cover, we find many of the most tender plants~
As well as the seedlings~
At a second location we found all kinds of great photo ops; not sure if my shot was crooked or the foundation ?
Still, I loved the door and the white work~
Not far away was a very old U-shaped coop and goat house; these are owned by the foreman, and inside the fence are all kinds of goats and kids and hens; the roosters are generally confined to the exterior~
Inside the fence were many kind faces; I should have video’d this as the bleats were constant and varied; here Mr. Billy Goat with his long beard~
Another sweet one, who really gave me a smile; goats love to smile for the camera, I find~
The patina of this coop was worn, old, rustic. Not sure if it was painted or limed, but it was a perfect backdrop for chicken photos today~
In front of the fencing we had a series of high-stepping roosters~
Hard to photograph, but oh so fun for us to follow today!
Amazing against the white wash of the coop~
I couldn’t stop taking pics of the coop and this white; how to replicate this….
Lime, paint or pine, at least the chickens are happy there!
You will see more of this farm later; I feel a special blessing for all the animals who live and work on this farm.
We are continuing to work on our farm project and hope you enjoy these few photos~
