Hello everyone! I am a young female farmer in Samsula Florida - south west of Daytona Beach area. My husband and I own a landscape and irrigation company in the area. When the economic situation changed we began selling plants at local farmers markets a couple of years ago. At first I was purely a reseller of any kind of plant under the sun, but when I brought herbs and vegetable plants I got such a great response from customers that I sold out every week. I then start growing my own...
Quail pens...not complete yet. I have a frame of a building that I normally use as a greenhouse but I am getting a new bigger greenhouse this year so I am turning this into the quail area. For the pens I took the tables that I used for starting seeds on that already have wire bottoms and added the sides. Still a work in progress. New quail baby!
Chicks arrive! Peanut my long haired chiuhuana checking out the new arrivals! First day out of the brooder and on the grass! First day in the coop! Coop still being worked on though. Speckled Sussex soaking up the rays on the deck! Maude the golden polish! Gertude the silver polish! Cuckoo Maran All the girls fighting for their share of the watermelon.
Old playhouse that I found a guy selling on the side of the road. This is it getting deliverd - yes it looked like a shaky operation! Playhouse being unloaded! First day chickens are in their new home. Finally finished! Retrofitted playhouse, new range coop for additional hawk protection, 200' of electric fence for raccoon and dog protection and chairs for when they need to rest...hahaha! Backporch that I built. I will probably enclose this and make the coop bigger for more chickens...
