K is for Kids at the End of the Road Farm. There are always projects and chores. Rory is collecting food for the worms. He and his cousins built our worm bin for vermicomposting, and have helped keep the worms fed when they are here. We’ve had the worms for five years now.
Sometimes we have special events like riding lesssons at Birch Glen Stables. All the boys got lessons, and most of them were enjoyed. I like getting their rotted manure for the vegetable garden. Horses have all kinds of value.
There are chores, too, of course. Fortunately, getting to run the equipment is fun. So far.
Our neighbor has goats and sometimes the boys get to feed them at milking time. We love homemade goat cheese.
Raspberries and Blueberries to pick.
Now we are looking forward to getting the GREAT Granddaughters into the garden and everywhere. They used to live in Florida, but now they live near!
I do have four granddaughters including the mother of the two great-granddaughters, and the younger girls now 26, 22 and 18, but their years at the End of the Road were pre-digital photos.

Kids and gardening just seem to go together. I grew up on a farm, which is why I love growing things so much today. I started composting with worms about three years ago and continue to be amazed how well the poor worms survive my less than expert methods.
