Since we are still overflowing with zucchini at the farm, I’ve been making zucchini bread like a mad woman. Andrew loves it as a breakfast bread with butter and honey but I enjoy mine plain with a big cup of coffee. Whatever you fancy, this zucchini bread will fit the bill. After sharing a loaf or two with friends and family, the response was overwhelming and I’m here to share the much desired recipe. I discovered the original recipe on Real Life Dinner and adapted it to suit our taste buds and ingredients on hand (less sugar and flour with loads more zucchini). Hope you enjoy it as much as we do at Cypress Bayou Farm. Pin the recipe for your future reference!
With each new season comes many different changes and Spring, by far, is my favorite season of all. The birds are having babies, the flowers are blooming, the grass is green and growing like wildfire, the wind is blowing, the horses are losing their winter coats and the days are long enough to fit in all the farm memories you could ever dream of.
When we first decided to add chickens to the farm, I wasn’t quite sure what type of coop would fit our needs. Because we are located in a flood zone, I felt a chicken tractor would be the best option for us, allowing relocation to higher ground if needed. We plan on free ranging but like the idea of having a run attached so that we can leave them inside while we are away from the farm or during heavy storms. I had no idea where to start or who to turn to for the construction of our chicken tractor. My cowboy is talented in many things but construction isn’t his area of expertise and quite frankly, I knew we would kill each other trying to build this thing ourselves. I need as little stress in my life as possible. No DIY chicken tractor project for this gypsy girl.
After a long first year at the farm and lots of big projects, we finally added our first set of chicks. I’ve been dreaming of this day for a long time and to see the fluffy, fuzzy little ones dancing around, chirping about made my heart skip a beat. While our coop is under construction, I went ahead and placed an order with Meyer Hatchery.
