Easter and Springtime…

Things are busy, busy here on our little chunk of the globe.  We celebrated Easter with family and lots of wonderful food.  We have Randy’s family coming in this weekend, so there is lots of housekeeping and food preparations to get finished up before they arrive.  Hopefully the weather is nice, but they are already calling for rain here on Saturday.  The rain will be good for the pastures and we need pastures desperately right now.

Chas has a Giveaway!  So go check it out.  She has a wonderful blog and the giveaway is great too!

So far I only have potatoes and onions planted.  My peas didn’t come up and our garden isn’t fenced yet, so our free range chickens will eat the seeds if I plant them.  Hopefully this weekend I will get the majority of my seeds planted. 

I know it’s late, but this is a wonderful recipe for Blarney Stones for those of you intrested in some fun Irish food.  One recommendation is to use salted peanuts.  I made half with raw unsalted peanuts and the other half with regular salted peanuts and they were MUCH better.

Have a wonderful day!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
