The animals we know and love

I can’t remember where I read it but apparently Orson Wells came up with the idea for Animal Farm after seeing a boy with a string leading a mule. He thought it was strange that such a thing could be done. What if animals realized their own strength compared to ours. From that idea sprung

The Beginning Of Spring?

We are at a the cross roads of a major shift in the seaons. Winter has gained a strong foothold these past few months. Sending down wave after wave of arctic cold with and scattered but significant snow. With such a strong front line the newly awakened Spring doesn't seem to have much of a

Mountain Time

Its been hard to get off the mountain this week, really its been hard for the last several weeks. Not having internet or a phone and being a mile up a dirt road and having so much to do really makes it hard to take the time to drive away and communicate with the outside

Natural Udder Care and Rectifing an Uneven Udder.

August. The beginning of the bounty months. Our tomatoes are beginning to ripen, the peppers are hanging heavy on the plants, the carrots are getting ready to pull and the beans always need picking.

Two Precocious Does?

We adopted an orphan.

The warm weather is winning. It was in the 80's this week, my delicate winter skin got an unpleasant surprise when I wore a tank top in the hot sun for 8 hours last wednesday. I am still sitting tenderly to keep my back form touching the chair behind me. The warm weather brought more

Pregnant or Precocious?

_ So spring is still being cruel. Snow this morning and frost for the last three nights. We had an insane wind storm that blew the top of our composting toilet, ...scattered all the plastic in the garden ....and lifted our solar shower over the goat fence and into their pen. It was one hell
