A little bit of warm weather…

I started working outside a little bit with our first stretch of nice weather.

The chickens have a hay day with mulch and dirt around our home.  This is my strawberry bed.  You can see the coffee filters surfacing from all the dirt they have kicked off to the side of the box.  I managed to get it cleaned up and dirt/manure added back to the strawberry bed in hopes of salvaging what is left.

The guilty party.

So usually I blame the chickens for messing up all the mulch around our farm.



I’m wrong…

That would be Chance.  I had just gotten all the mulch raked back around our elderberry bushes when he came flying by and tunneled right through all the newly piled mulch.  He was too cute to scold.

Our new adventure.

These are Romanov cross bottle lambs from Dad’s farm.  They will be raised on a bucket of milk replacer (you can see the bucket hanging in their building) and supplemented with a bottle as needed.

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.
