Spring has sprung and peeps are popping out of eggs. Somehow I missed the vernal equinox marking the spring date with more or less equal hours of daylight and night., This year, it fell on March 20th which no doubt here in the South was cool and wet. But...the birds and the bees got the message. As did the grass and clover and flowers. Daffodils are almost a memory and azaleas are beginning to bloom. Rosemary bushes are covered in tiny purple flowers attracting honeybees and bumbles alike. Are you ready? Hello spring!
Kelley Creek Farms is a small (micro really) hobby farm located in Central Alabama 30 minutes south of Birmingham. We raise heritage and rare waterfowl and poultry along with a myriad of other creatures that give the farm its life. In addition to the birds, we raise heirloom tomatoes and vegetables.
Each day is different and brings a new set of adventures. Some make you laugh and some make you cry. Some are just plain frustrating. But we persevere knowing that tomorrow's set of problems will be completely different than today. Still figuring all this out ....one day at a time and striving for a more sustainable way of life.
