Well, another week has ended. We thoroughly enjoyed the first week in September up here in Maine. The cool nights and sunny days, the arrival of goldfinches to our feeder and even the distant howling of coyotes. And our spring ducklings laid their first egg yesterday! We know that this first winter especially will be a true test of our will, but I think we're all up to the challenge. The chickens are all molting in anticipation of winter, so they'll have nice new feathers to keep them warm come the first frost and they have a nice new coop to protect them from predators and the elements. Enjoy this peek at our week!
