The State of Things

Lately I’ve been thinking about “the state of things”; the state of my household (that’s for another post), the state of our state, the state of our nation and the state of our world. Sometimes it’s easy to put blinders on and just go about your daily life; work, school, home

BT Corn and Other Stuff

I posted this picture on our FaceBook page the other day.   There was quite a discussion on the “benefits”(insert sarcasm here) of GM products and the company producing it. Anyway, one of the trends in conversation was “cant trust any food unless you grow it yourself” and/or

Surprise!

Look what was waiting for us in the barn this afternoon!   Apparently, Poppy’s due date was not Saturday and being the kind of goat she is (a pain in my bum) she kidded all on her own! A beautiful little buckling and a teeny tiny doeling! All are doing great! *Sorry the pictures

2012 Earth Day Food and Wine Festival at Pomar Junction

Whew!! What a day!! I had a fabulous time at the EDFW12 on Saturday. This was our first “event” so I wasn’t sure what to expect exactly. We had a great table in a very high traffic area…tons of people walked by…unfortunately, that’s what they did…just walked by. Due to some

Cool Things This Week

Okay, here is what I’m going to do…I follow quite a few “all-natural”, “frugal” and “homesteading” type blogs. I LOVE to read what other people are doing and their creative projects. I’ll admit it…I’m a shameless copycat! So, what I would like to do is each week, probably on
