…and this year they are smarter than ever. I’ve been growing my own corn for a few years now, determined to grow as much of what I eat, as I can. This spring I didn’t have a chance to start more than one batch of seedlings. The first ones weren’t warm enough in the beginning […]

Yes! So… can we tell when winter is coming and how long it will be, etc…….without looking at the Farmer’s Almanac, and googling it? Hubby reminded me yesterday, while we peered out the window at the dusky white day that had arrived, about the year that winter had arrived and stayed so early, years ago. […]

The longest day of the year has arrived. I stayed up all night to see where the sun went… …then it dawned on me.

Babies add joy to my life. My 50 chicks are almost 2 weeks old and eating  over a gallon of ground up alfalfa, clovers, and dandelion greens….phew!…a lot of work for me and my blender. These young plants have about an 18% protein content which, if supplemented with a small portion of fishmeal or other […]

I had a few special privileges when I was growing up. Being in a Brownie pack was one. That sounds strange when I think of a brownie, now, as a sweet and gooey baked desert. Anyway, I obviously wasn’t that kind of brownie. I don’t think I had a uniform right off, so I would […]

As a little girl I had dreams about horses and riding them. These dreams were likely based on a book I once read called “Black Beauty”. The book was narrated from a horse’s perspective. This Black Beauty was a good-natured horse that had been told by his mother to always do his best to please […]

The most amazing things about having a sea of yellow fluff in the chicken house is how much time I can spend there while outside the door the grass keeps growing, the meals go unmade, the phone doesn’t get answered, the sun rise and sets… The mail arrived  at noon with 52 (2 are extra […]

The Mousey Heaven was in my parsnip patch last winter. My Mom’s yard was so riddled with tunnels and mines I was shocked…and so was she !! The only good thing about she figures is that she didn’t know she was completely surrounded by the varmints. I just realized I have some stories I haven’t published about […]

I had one lonely half of an apple on the counter and a dried and shrivelled up old lemon. “You look like you would make a pair” I said to them. So I bagged them together and left the apple to moisten the lemon, hoping I might be able to get a knife through it […]
