How We Get Our Kicks

They ask for the pot of kitchen scraps.
Then I hear them all giggling out on the porch.

This is how we get our kicks at the Knitty Gritty Homestead.


  1. So funny ~ I will take that any day over TV or a hand held gadget. I love this post!

  2. I love it! As everyone has said so much better than a tv or gadget!

  3. Ha Ha! I can SO relate, my littles LOVE feeding the hens whatever morsels they may find. Feeding them through the fence is especially fun, for some reason. The challenge of fitting things through the chicken wire, perhaps. Great for fine motor and planning skills. Lots of trial and error. Will this corn on the cob fit through? How about this bean? The raspberries?

    I love that last shot!

  4. Wonderful activity for the kids! Yours will be among the few that REALLY know where the food comes from. I totally agree with W-S Wanderings about the lessons learned.

    Isn't it something that the little 'uns are sitting out in next to nothing when it's darn near the middle of September? Can't believe we haven't had a frost up here in the Valley yet.

  5. I can't tell you how long I've been trying to find Alyce and Shira some chickens to visit. I love spending time on farms and I'm dying to watch Shira's face especially when she sees one. How much fun are those pictures?

    Thanks for the comments this week. I'm hoping my Blue Fall doesn't last too long. Finding a job will help! And this Kindergarten craziness! I had no idea how hard it would be, but of course it was. I expect that the kids in your class are especially lucky to have you as their teacher. Good luck with the first day!


This space is a creative outlet for a busy mama; I warmly embrace your comments and feedback, as well as questions/requests for details. I do check them daily and will respond where appropriate! Thank you for visiting the Knitty Gritty Homestead!
