Fasting on the Farm

This is our second Ramadan on our farm. This year, our farm is more established with animals. when we are fasting, the animals can be quite bothersome. I usually like to go back to sleep for a short time after the Fajr. Roosters, chickens, guinea hens, ducks and geese are just waking up and making all kinds of rukus. We have a mini rooster and he has a high pitch crow that goes on and on. Each morning we would take him from the barn and put him in a cage so he could not come near the house. Also during Ramadan, our garden was growing fast and we did not have enough time to eat it all. Therefore, most of the zuccini and tomatoes are in my freezer. I made relish and pickles from my cucumbers. We should still be enjoying the garden veggies until spring again!

Assalamu Alaikum umnour, Alhamduillah hope you and your family are doing well.It's almost a month before I saw this post. Masha Allah I hear you with those animals. My neighbours' rooster does the same to us. At the same time it's good to hear some real animals.

Assalamu ALeikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuu,

Dear Um Nour,

I got your blog's address from Sister Anie, Yusuf's mom. I really enjoy the beautiful pictures and I ask Allah swt to let me and my family have our own little garden one day In sha Allah.
Hope to meet you someday.
