Need Care-Free Maintenance for Chickens and Other Farm-Fowl?
Try these for new or existing flock! We simply set up a rain barrel which collects off the corrugated plastic roof of the coop, put together the water drinkers with a drill and small piece of pvc (all direction make this very simple--don't be intimidated! If I could do it . . . !) As long as the rain barrel had some water, your chickens will always have what they need! Get yours today and atomate this process. Less time on chickens--more time for you!

POPPING PEPPERS-It’s How We Do on Sunny Funny Farm
We can only HOPE the peppers pop. Turns out there’s a lot to it for successful pepper germination. I found out, after MANY failed attempts to grow various peppers, that they need several elements to be present before they grace you with their delicate, green presence. But they're SO worth it I’ll tell you all I’ve learned—click the link and pop those peppers!

SKIPPING LEG DAY on Sunny Funny Farm-It’s How We Do!
Just picture it--an old woman in her mid 60's, gasping across the yard, wishing she'd had the foresight to wear a more appropriate undergarment, breathlessly stumbling back to the house for a cold one and a fist full of Advil. On second thought- paint your own picture. No doubt—it would be less traumatic than mine.

SEE YOU AT THE OPTOMETRIST
I took Mom to her optometrist appointment since she was uncomfortable traversing the distance on her own. This visit fell during the Christmas holiday season and we couldn't help but feel that we were being watched in the waiting room. It was inevitable that we would find something funny about wherever we found ourselves—it’s how we rolled. Our comedy routine had not yet commenced, not until we looked closer at the decorations.

The continuing story our farm Mascote Henrietta. She is a force to be reckoned with--a legend in her own mind. In this episode, she models her anti-Thanksgiving costume which consists of a karate robe with a black belt.  Being of the "fowl" persuasion doesn't mean she should be considered part of the holiday fare. 

So Don't even THINK about it. She will NOT be coming for dinner. To further her self-preservation, she carries her broken board as a symbol of defiance.

HENRIETTA ISSUES A WARNING on Sunny Funny Farm!
She is our farm Mascote and a force to be reckoned with-a legend in her own mind. Thanksgiving is upon us, and being of the "fowl" persuasion doesn't mean she'll be considered part of the holiday fare. She further wishes to confirm sternly--Don't even THINK about it. She will NOT be coming for dinner. To prepare for this momentous occasion, she has enrolled in karate classes and risen to black-belt status in a relatively short time span. She has made the board her b1tch! Click for more!
This day began with a crown falling off while eating homemade soup. Happily, no pain was involved, and the tooth was easily reattached. But not before I gave the dentist office a chuckle.

LONG IN THE TOOTH ON SUNNY FUNNY FARM--It's How We do!
Once in a while, something interesting happens here on the farm. Sometimes, you are innocently eating a bowl of home-made, bone broth, beef and barley soup when your crown falls out. Yep--that's what happened. Now you may be thinking, "What the hell was in that soup?" I can assure you, it was not bones. I guess it was just its time to fall out. I hear they occasionally do that, so I guess I it was just my turn. A trip to the dentist was definitely in order. Click the link for more!
Our two new horse-neighbors bring so much joy to us, as we watch them do their thing, next door to us on Sunny Funny Farm!

Meet Victor, a large chestnut brown horse, and his new baby brother, a similar color miniature horse. 

Victor gallops and in general, cavorts around his paddock, especially when he spies someone or something to show off for. Then he is especially humorous, as he gallops and rears up. 

Hoof beats and hilarity is sure to ensue. Click the link for more! Cai Arabi, Horse Sketches, Funny Horse Memes, Horse Meme, Horse Quotes Funny, Horse Jokes, Funny Horse Pictures, Horse Riding Quotes, Horse Cartoon
BEING NEIGH-BORLY--It's What We Do on Sunny Funny Farm!
When we moved to the farm, the neighbors to our immediate left that had an empty paddock, which was finally occupied by his wife's horse, Victor. I, of course, immediately began to call him Victor Victorious because it's what I do. And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, then came a little miniature horse named Boomer, affectionately known as boom-boom. Since Justice had a relocation situation, Boomer was purchased to keep Victor company. Meet the new neighbors'-click the link!
This article discusses misleading information on seed packets as it pertains to timing for planting.

Seasons are backwards, soil isn't soil, and let's face it--it's tough to grow anything in an oven. Not to mention seasons are changing, it's staying hot longer; even predicted frost have pushed further into the winter, which extends fall growing, but throws off your timing.

MISLEADING SEEDING-This is How We do--on Sunny Funny Farm!
We're working hard to learn the special skills of growing in the south. Having come from the north where I could grow ANYTHING, southern adaptations have been a real conundrum. Seasons are backwards, soil isn't soil, and let's face it--it's tough to grow anything in an oven. Not to mention seasons are changing, it's staying hot longer; even predicted frost have pushed further into the winter, which extends fall growing, but throws off your timing.

This article discusses the nasty little insect called the Leaf legged stink bug. It's a real thing, and it removes chunks of our beautiful, ripe tomatoes just as they ripen.

The ugly little critters have what looks like chunks of leaves on their back legs, giving them the appearance of having saddlebags built in. 

But we will triumph over them--we MUST! The future of all of our tomato sauce-based meals depends on it. Leaf Footed Bug, Red Insects, Organic Insecticide, Fire Ants, Stink Bugs, Insecticidal Soap, Japanese Beetles
LEAF LEGGED STINK BUGS-It's What We FIGHT With, on Sunny Funny Farm!
Yes--this is a real thing. And worse, those pesky insects are using surgical precision to excise chunks of flesh off our beautiful tomatoes. This does not make us happy. We've tried everything from dish detergent, to cinnamon, peppermint & neem oil, just to name a few. They've scoffed-- even LAUGHED at our efforts. But we will triumph--we MUST!
