If planting the garden, tending to the chicks and getting the Inn ready for the summer season weren't enough, we had a baby fawn arrive and she made Joe and I her parents. We ignored her as much as possible in hopes the mother would come and take her away, but she would walk up to the house every morning and cry wanting to be fed. So we fed her goats milk in a bottle to ease her hunger pangs. We realized by the third day that this wasn't good for her or us so we brought her to the Warwick Valley Humane Society and they put her in a Wildlife Release program with other abandoned fawns. It was an interesting and compassionate three days however, and an excellent photo opportunity for us and the guests.
We are expecting eggs from the chickens in July and a harvest from our just planted garden showcasing organic tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, beans and zucchini. We can't wait to fry up some tempura zucchini blossoms for our guests at breakfast! Hope to see you soon!
