© Copyright 2009, the morning people (unless it's been a late night) foodie farm blog where we love our Rooster Daddy (whose most recently hatched kids are already almost grown up!), but we know from personal experience that all that propoganda about roosters only crowing at the break of day is—how should I put this?—such a crock. It's more like whenever he feels like it, which around here is all day, all night, and any moment in between. One time we were off the farm and didn't get back until 1 a.m., and as soon as we opened the truck doors we heard COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO! I burst out laughing. We were definitely home sweet home!


  1. So beautiful and peaceful! Fall is already here too!



  2. I love those photos. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Great photos--they really do give a sense of morning calm. Well, except for that rascal in the last one. The tree with the sunlight filtering through looks so wonderful!

  4. again I'm reassured we made the right move in not having a rooster - noisy enough with our goats! beautiful photos Susan - late summer is a special time in the country - do you have any more haying to do?

  5. thanks for the beautiful and peaceful pictures on this Monday morning.....made me smile.

  6. Your rooster is adorable! Someday I'd love to have chickens and a rooster when I have my own home. However, I'd have to convince my rooster that morning started closer to 10:00 AM, which I feel is no easy task.

  7. your farm is beautiful.

    someday. *sigh*

  8. I grew up on a small farm here in Southwest Missouri and though I have lived in town for several years it is pictures like yours that bring back such fond memories. Thank you for posting these and hope you will continue to do so.

  9. Great, peaceful, morning pictures. And about the rooster? We had one that crowed at 3 am even in the winter, not 30 feet from the kids windows.

  10. Gorgeous photos - including the rooster! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  11. Gorgeous! We almost moved to 40 acres in Oklahoma but it didn't work out. I still think about all that land and seclusion sometimes!

  12. I so enjoyed todays pictures--but then you always share such beautiful farm pictures with us--thanks--oh and i love the picture of lazy Daisy!! I just wished I could figure out how to put the label on the base of the pictures like you do--maybe one of these days I will get it right???/ Hugs, just, DI

  13. i could just soak myself in your photos! picnic under your tree please!

  14. the photo with the mist is great. haunting and beautiful at the same time.

  15. Wow, the 2nd and 3rd photos are stunning!!! :D

  16. LOL @ Rooster Daddy! I have three roosters now (long story about those guys) and they truly do crow whenever they feel like it. I've heard them at 3:00am; I guess they're the "party-hearty" type.
