What do you do when it's supposed to snow? Go to the grocery store just like everyone else!🙈 ▫ We did. We knew it was supposed to snow Saturday night, and since I hadn't been out of the house in a week because my car wouldn't consistently start (bad battery we replaced), we were in dire need of groceries. As in, there wasn't enough of anything to make a mystery meal. Yeah. Saturday grocery shopping generally isn't my favorite, then you add everyone in town is shopping for eggs, milk, and bread because ❄❄❄. #bigmistake Huge! ▫ Anyhow, we got it done, then escaped back to our winter oasis.⬅ I don't even know if that possible, but that's what I'm gonna call it. And just before sunset, the snow began to fall, and fall, and FALL. Everytime the weather people told us it should be stopping, they pushed back that time. I think they #makeitup as they go along sometimes. So, we watched it. Then Sunday, after making it home from church, we watched it some more. ▫ The kids we're enthralled when Grandpere came over with the tractor to clear the drive. Who knew how exciting #farmlife could be! Only through the #eyesofachild , right?

Finished product, crushed eggshells for added calcium. It really takes a lot for these to break down so you have to crush them up for them to really be any added benefit. And even then it depends on the pH of your soil. 🌱🌱🥚🥚 That said, if nothing else they prevent certain pests from crawling to your plants. #garden#gettysburg#adamscountypa#farming#farmlife#gardening
We got back from the farm last night. We don’t have internet there and it’s so peaceful to get away from it all. I downloaded some movies on Netflix so we could watch them by the fire at night. And I always have many podcasts to listen to throughout the week. I started writing the cookbook for a few hours every day. The hardest part is going to be photography. But before anything I need to find recipe testers to make sure everything is understandable and easy to make. Coming back to “reality” meant coming back to 33 emails (most useless) and a letter from my bank saying I need to declare some kind of American tax thing – I have nothing to pay, but anything to do with money, the bank, taxes or administration makes my anxiety so much worse. I start thinking about the future, and moving, and working, and how I will ever find an apartment/house with a dog and cat and no real job as of yet. And wondering how I’ll ever make money. Everything is easier and nicer at the farm. I pretend Trump doesn’t exist. Maduro doesn’t exist. Anti-vegans like the moron Piers Morgan don’t exist. Money problems don’t exist. Emails don’t exist. Social media doesn’t exist. It’s just the chickens, the dogs, the horses and the cows and me... and Netflix and my podcasts. 🐕🐄🐎🐓 I know reality is good. It’s where I actually live. But when you have the privilege of getting away from it all, you can take a few steps back and notice what makes you happy. I will need to work on all the money/tax/admin anxiety because to start any business or get anywhere in life, I will need to go through all of it. For now it’s not much. Just sitting down straight away, sending an email, dealing with it quickly, asking for help if needed and getting it over with. Making priorities; not leaving the annoying stuff for last. I want to simplify my online life. I guess a lot of this thinking came after listening to an episode on Dr. Mark Hyman’s podcast called “How social
Our friends’ family own this incredible 200-acre farm here in Florida and when they invited us to spend the weekend there with them fishing, riding horses, playing with the cows and sheep and just UNPLUGGING... Well, y’all better believe my answer was YES! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 @ethealey . The kids are getting bigger by the minute and I just want to soak up every single second of memory-making with them. This was the perfect way to do it! ♥️🐮🐷🐴 . Feeling rested + refreshed and ready to kick start the week! Happy Monday, friends! 💋
It’s been said that “an only goat is a lonely goat,” and we think truer words were never spoken. Once bonded, goats are never far from their chosen companions. Before coming to Farm Sanctuary, both Cali & Freddy both lacked the companionship of other goats, which can be heartbreaking to herd animals like them. Everything changed when these two met. Though they arrived years apart, it’s like they’ve known each other their entire lives. Their bond makes them ! Sponsor Cali and Freddy for someone you love this Valentine's Day: http://bit.ly/2BzXqKC (LINK IN BIO!). , , , DoubleTap & Tag a Friend Below⤵ 🙏 Plz Follow us - @farmerloveheart Tag your love 😘 Thank you !
...и слышу крик: "Петух! Гамбургский!"... . . . А тему вот какая - нужен ли петух б̶а̶б̶ь̶е̶м̶ курином царстве? 🤔 Раньше я свято верила, что данный индивид погоды в курятнике не сделает, а только будет объедать моих ласточек 🐔. В целом, он принципиально не нужен, если яйцо не на инкубацию. Но спустя некоторое время я изменила своё мнение на диаметрально противоположное. Если петух есть - будет и порядок в доме. И это факт 🐓 С м̶у̶ж̶е̶м̶ петухом куры спокойнее - все конфликты он разруливает. Не знаю как другие, наш Петя всегда проверяет качество гнёзд, приводит их в порядок, укладывает солому как удобнее. Когда кто-то из кур квохчет в гнезде - поддерживает и тоже квохчет. Кстати, когда курочки 🐔 были молодками и только-только начинали начинали свою спонсорскую деятельность на благо нашего холодильника и аппетита, Петюня их учил делать это самое дело в гнёзда - звал, загонял в гнездо, квохтал. Петух 🐓 смотрит за опасностью и если летит/подкрадывается хищник, то он своих девчонок загоняет в укрытие. Петух, найдя вкусняшку, зовёт своих красавец и угощает их. Так что, теперь я уже скорее "за"
Well it’s #meetmygoatmonday and I’m proud to present Meep and Toby out amongst us again... 🐐 If you don’t know these two they are the terrors of Little Farm on the Hill Airbnb.... 🐐 They’ve jumped the patio fence and went the bathroom on guests luggage, taken treats from guests and even stuck their head thru the guests quarters kitchen window.... 🐐 Not to mention they are not nice to the other animals in the Airbnb Clan.. 🐐 They have been on lockdown for over a month... due to flooding I had to let them loose... 🐐 So far they are behaving, they’ve been super polite to me... every once in a while we have a hiccup or two but all in all good so far..... 🐐 Sharing this with my friends @theyounghomestead and @newburyfarms Come play along with us @the__simple__things__ @gooseberrybridgefarm and @garrisongoatfarm
If you heard Ep 4-Fairly Heavy, this is a picture of the time I was describing in the end of the episode. I remember getting ready for this pic with my niece. I had hives on my chest, and I couldn’t do my makeup because my hands were shaking. I was about to take a couples pic with my amazing family....as a single. (I think it was even MY idea!!) . Satan had certainly convinced me that my family was going to cut ties with me after my divorce, and that I was absolutely and utterly alone on earth! What a “jack-leg” as my sister calls him! Do whatever you can to sift through the BS and distractions to get to the truth💕 . And that is this: There is NOTHING you can do to make the Lord love you any MORE or any LESS. His love is unconditional, and once you can embrace that, you can move forward! You are loved like CRAZY!! . So you want to encourage people to stay married, AND encourage those that have gotten divorced not to stay in the pit, all at the same time?? Yep, I sure do!! And I’ve got a beautiful 6’3 farmer with me while I do it! 💕🌿
