On the Road Again
As I write this Allan in on his way back from Oklahoma with a stock trailer load of animals. And on Saturday, as you read this, we will have a cattle truck enroute from Oklahoma to Arboles with the calves that we will be finishing on Colorado grasses. Yahoo!!! This is always an exciting time for us, but also a time when we realize that our calmer lifestyle will be changing to a much busier schedule. Wish I had pictures to share, but I will definitely have something for next month's newsletter.

I am trying to do a better job with our Facebook page for GrassRoots Meats. You can visit us at I will be posting lots of pictures as the summer progresses. I can share more pictures there than I can on this newsletter. We would LOVE it if you would LIKE US!

Update on the Chicks
Chick Update It is absolutely amazing how fast our little chicks have grown. And we haven't lost a single one. God knows I need some chicken encouragement, having lost so many of last year's. Won't be long now and we will be letting them out onto the green pastures. Allan is planning a new home for them, with electric netting to protect them from predators. We will keep you posted.

No Shipping June 17th
Our whole family is headed for Cincinnati on the 10th of June, and will not return until the 18th. We will be checking emails every day, and you can still contact us by phone - all the lines will be forwarded to my cell phone. So if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us. However, we will not be shipping anything on the 17th.

We WILL be shipping on the 10th, and we ask you to please get those orders in by noon on Saturday, June 8th. We will be packing the meat on Sunday, and it will go out as usual on Monday. Thanks so much.

Before Pictures
Before Picture of Greenhouse We are putting in a very large outside garden this year and thought you might like to see a before picture. We will be planting in front and to the right side of the greenhouse, as well as inside. While I know we will have setbacks and disappointments, I can hardly contain my excitement for what we might be able to produce.

There will be a woven wire fence completely surrounding the outside growing area, and we will use this as a trellis for growing tomatoes, squash, beans, cucumbers, melons, and peas. In the inside rows we will plant kale, spinach, lettuce, radishes, peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, chard, onions, celery, beets, okra, potatoes, corn, turnips, and pumpkins. I already started the tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, pumpkins, and okra inside, so they will have a bit of a jumpstart. God willing we will have a long, warm growing season here in Arboles. Where we live is considered the "banana belt" of the area, so we are hoping to grow a lot of vegetables. Again, we will keep you posted with pictures as we go, both in this newsletter and on our Facebook page.

Recycle Liners
Some of you have suggested that we recycle those liners for the boxes we send you. If you would fold them up and pack them in a large box, we can send you a UPS prepaid label to ship them back to us. One at a time is not worth it, but if you can accumulate them and pack them up we would love to be able to reuse them. Just give me a call or send an email when you have some ready to ship back.

Cranes on the Pond
Crane on the Pond Every morning we have a couple of cranes that come in to the pond. Thought you might like to see one. Isn't it amazing how its colors blend with the wood? The pond is just below our house and offers some lovely surprises from time to time.

In Closing ...
As is so often the case when planning this newsletter I think I have very little to report, but as I go along I remember other things I want to share with you. This month is no exception. I always try to keep it short and simple because I hate long newsletters. Thanks so much for being part of our family, and for wanting to hear about GrassRoots Meats. Your support is such an encouragement. God bless you.

Lois & Allan
