Luna Moth

Our Luna Moth cocoons are starting to hatch...we woke up with a beautiful surprise! Kristine is now in design phase for a moth and butterfly house. We will keep you posted!
This moth, named after Luna, the Roman goddess of the moon, is one of the most spectacular-looking moths, with sweeping tails and feathery antennae. Unfortunately, it is threatened by the use of pesticides.

Planting our second run

Kristine and I planted over 600 Buttercrunch lettuce transplants this we are eating a huge salad topped with eatable flowers for lunch. It is nice having greens around again!!!

After lunch we plant our second run of Red Chard...

Zoey our rabbit has been having a relaxing day lounging on the sofa. He also enjoyed his salad and flower lunch


Something got one of our ducks the night before last... last night Maya caught this opossum. Hopefully he was the culprit! He will be playing dead for a long time.

Check out these duck killing hand... this guy was the largest opossum I have ever seen!

The Smell of Spring

The Chickasaw, Mexican and Red plums are in bloom. The fragrance is truly intoxicating! Ummm... I love the Smell of Spring at Eden Creek Farm! Today the wind gusts got up to 43 miles per hour...That should help dry out the fields!

I can taste the plum wine now.....
