I took all these pictures on my Blackberry phone, really happy how clear the pictures come out. Just wanted to share a walk/hike I took with my husband and my dogs on the farm trail. I am lucky that I live near a farm and the owners like for people to use the trails. My dogs love the hike and they know that after the hike we go and feed the chickens, I love visiting the Lovely Ladies.

A while back I posted a walk on the farm called I hiked. Well after Hiking the Flat Iron in Boulder, I feel like my Michigan trail is now more of a walk/hike in comparison.  But a walk is a walk and I love walking outdoors.

Kind of obsessed with taking pictures of shadows.

This years crop is going to be field corn, and field corn gets super high, so I hope to show the progress the corn is making. I walk this trail often so I will keeping posting pictures and share them. Last years crop was soybean and they are not as exciting as the corn is, as far as the growing process goes.

Stuart loved the trail. He smells and marks every thing.

Killian always leads us, he gets the long lead leash for farm walks.

Stuart gets tired on this walk, but he really pushes through it like a stallion.

So after the walk we headed to see the Lovely Ladies and give them my kitchen scraps, some bread and some shredded carrots. I love to feed the ladies, they really are beautiful.

They love human visitors. The dogs stay in the car, they stress the chickens out so we only let the dogs watch them from the car.

Then we headed home. Saying good-bye to the farm. I love being out on the farm.

But we left with a treat. Fresh asparagus that the farmer had on his personal vegetable plot. Score.  I think foods from the farm that are fresh always taste better than the vegetables I get from the grocery store. I am very excited that after Memorial Day my Friday Farm Market opens up. All the products sold are from local farms in my area.

Had a great day, perfect weather, and stayed active.

Question of the Day: Do you notice the taste difference from fresh farm foods over store-bought foods?
