And the Most Inconsistent Blogger Award goes to…


I haven’t posted since April! So what’s been going on at the farm?

We (again) tore up the front yard and flattened out the garden we had made. After almost seven years of fighting weeds, I’m throwing in the towel for real this time. I lost my husband to that battle three years ago when he declared he’d never touch the front yard again. I guess he’s that much smarter than I am! Or perhaps, I’m just that much more stubborn. Anyway, all of the perennials have been dug up and are sitting in pots, awaiting the day I decide where they’ll live. We’ve decided on a small, fenced-off, raised bed garden, with an attached greenhouse. Easy Peasy. That’s what I’m all about these days.

As far as the chickens, I don’t have too much to say. No funny stories, no cute baby chicks, nada. Boring, right? This was the first spring in over five years I haven’t bred chickens. I’m tired and over-extended. So like I almost always do every fall, I review the year and decide what stays and what goes.

Staying: Farming, gardening, cooking, learning more about herbs/essential oils, chickens (though reduced in number), crafting. I should add “husband and kids”, but surely that’s obvious.

Going: Extraneous chickens, things that interfere with family time, too much time spent on computer/phone, Facebook (except for business activity), huge garden.

So there you have it! It’s been a very fast summer. I had no real spring or summer garden again this year, so no nice photos of that, either! Boo! But be on the lookout! I think you’ll enjoy what’s coming up!
