The first picture is a painting titled Wheat Harvest that I (Malaika) did for an art show at the Webster Fall Festival. It is oil paint on a pine board of Grandpa Whitney and my twin brother getting ready to harvest wheat. First they are walking down the lane, then they are in the wheat field examining the crop, then they are climbing up onto the combine to go harvest.
The second picture is of our red wattle pigs feasting on a mixture of kale and radish that we planted for them in mid summer.
The third picture is of our cattle herd grazing a hay field. It is November 6th and they are still happily grazing lush pastures.
The fourth picture is of our Ann Arbor Farmers Market booth. Our Winter Meat CSA filled up and our members picked up their first share this past week. We have lamb, beef, greeting cards, and wool at market now, and will have pork again come mid-December.
The fifth picture is of the progress on our new barn. The brick is laid and now Matthew and Ethan (a friend of ours from college who is a timber framer) are almost ready to start cutting joinery for the timber frame. The brick you see in this picture is the same brick my great grandfather Horace used to build a milking parlor in the mid 1900's.
