It has happened the past couple years that the last week of May is the one when conditions combine and the hay is ready for us to put up for our cattle’s winter use and the weather is forecasted to be fair enough to get it done. It seems that the entire weeks energies are […] Read more…

We’re thanking the Lord for the bountiful harvest we reaped from our little 2 1/2 acres this year! That total yield is about 1000 pounds per acre!  Over a whole ton of food! Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honor all the day. Psalm 71:8 Read more…

{week one} {week two} {week three} {week four} This month brought an end to most of the garden.  The onions were pulled, and although they’re smaller than I’d like to see, I’m just happy that they grew.

Until this year, we’ve had very little experience with harmful insects sabotaging our efforts to raise our own produce. This season, after inspecting the growing number of leafless broccoli plants, I discovered we are dealing with imported cabbageworms. (And that lower leaf appears to have a problem with a leaf miner.) These little fellows are […] Read more…
