  1. You're making me jealous for the eggs Barbara. We lost our best 3 layers last month to some varmints (they're no longer around either) but my younguns aren't ready for laying yet. I love the photos! Except for the trees, it looks kind'a like here. I sure love the willows by your pond though. Beautiful!! Thanks for inviting us :-D God Bless! <3 Carolyn

    1. We've been fairly blessed this season. We gather from 8 to 15 a day. Most would grade size large. Get our share of double yolks too. And the willows are fairly young. Can't wait until they grow more! We had some mayhaws planted on the other side, but the drought last summer took them. Thanks for visiting. See you soon, one place or another. - Barbara

    1. Well, Pete, Bug and I each counted them and come up with fourteen apiece...so I think we got it right. Of course counting in the photo is much harder than counting on the branch! Will be mid summer before they are ripe, but yes, they are usually so very sweet. Pete makes all the perserves he can. And when Bug was a toddler, if she went missing, she was either in the fig tree pouting or under it picking and eating all the figs she could!

  4. Your property resembles what I imagine Heaven would be like. And those eggs! I bet you've got milk and honey too. I can just smell the jasmine.

    1. How sweet of you Francene! Glad you enjoyed your time here. Every corner is not equally as inviting, but over all I find it pure bliss when I turn down our little road each evening and the trees start closing in upon me. - Barbara

  5. You live in a beautiful area.. all those willow trees are so lovely! We have one huge willow in our backyard (along with a huge pine and some fruit trees). Your little puppy is adorable! I get eggs from happy chickens (free range) down the road. Can't bring myself to buy the ones in the grocery story anymore!

    1. Dezi is a real cutter! LOL Our chickens range some and also have a large fenced in yard with a mesh type top on half of it, tin on the other half. As lovely as free ranging sounds, and as fascinating to watch them all around the yard, there are just so many varmints to contend with! Stray dogs and cats. Chicken snakes, chicken hawks, racoons, minks...devistating. I seldom have to buy any eggs out of the store...although they do go through cycles when they all but quit laying or we give too many away and then plan a cookout with a menu that requires more eggs than we have. LOL Stop back in and visit anytime! You are always welcome in Caneyhead.

  6. I've enjoyed your pictures, brings back memories of my childhood. I haven't had a good egg since I was a kid and the chicken was so much better than you can buy in the store. I sure don't miss the stinking feathers from plucking them though. Mom had several willow trees in the backyard, the limbs hung down to the ground. During summer Mom would fill a #3 galvanized tub with water beside the willows and after the sun warmed the water us kids would take a bath in it. They made a good switch too,ouch! Don't miss that either, lol. I thought your tractor looked kind of like my husbands Farmall A so I had him look at the picture. He told me his is older and doesn't have a hydraulic lift. He said he thought yours might be a Super A or Super C but because of his eyesight he couldn't really tell by looking at the picture. My husbands was still running until last year when he took the carburator off to replace it and he can't find another carburator or kit anywhere. It's really a shame because that old tractor would start up no matter how long it had been sitting in the building. Barbara, you have a beautiful place.

  7. Barbara, I have to laugh, I had to come back and correct myself on my last comment because my hubby said I was making him look dumb. He said he knows your tractor isn't a Super C because they are totally different from the A. Guess I should listen to him closer,lol. Sorry. Hubby said his tractor is 1942.

    1. Hubby is right! Pete's is a Super A. His does has the hydrolic lift. We're not sure of the model, but it's been around as long as he can remember and he was born in 1962. He has had to replace the carburator on it as well. He used one off a 1960 Lincoln welding machine. He didn't have any ready ideas for your hubby. Thanks for visiting! Come on back any time. ;o)

    2. Gary said they quit making the A in 1953 and started making Farmall 100 from 1953 to 1960 or 1961. He told me his tractor was built during WWII and they used whatever they had so the Farmall A came out with three different types of carburators and the one on his is a Carter. We used to have a store here where he could get the kits but it closed down several years ago.

      There's something I forgot to ask you in my comment last night. I know this might sound silly but I've never had a fig, do figs taste like the little fig bar cookies you buy in the store? If so I love fig bars and would probably like figs but I've never seen them in the stores here.

    3. Sorry it took me so long to answer! The fig bars have the taste, but most add a seasoning to the figs. In a good wet year, the figs taste like a sweet mild syrup when you eat them. Nature's own candy, if you will.

    4. Thanks Barbara! Sounds delicious!

  8. Oh my gosh, I love the fresh eggs! I should have grown up on a farm. I love fresh produce, tractors, rolling hills, all the Laura Ingalls stuff. Beautiful photos!
