Borrowing a Goat Buck – What to Expect

Borrowing a Goat Buck – What to Expect

Breeding season is coming to an end in these parts. While part of me is ready to pull my bullhorn out, announce that’s a wrap, escort the male stud out, then yell action on “Part 2 – the birth of the babies”, I suppose I have a while to wait yet. These things inevitably take time. So, while the Mama’s are growing the babies, let’s talk about goat love. But…

Zesty Southwestern Soup

Zesty Southwestern Soup

I promised on Facebook and Instagram that I would bring you this soup recipe. And then I promptly went on with my life, while you sat, suspended in time, waiting for the recipe to drop. Time passed. Days went by. Leaves fell from the trees. And finally, when all hope was seemingly lost, April looked up from what she was doing and thought “Oh yeah, soup”. I apologize leaving you…

Cinnamon Buns

Sometimes bloggers have to make sacrifices for their readers. And such was the case last week, when I posted a picture of cinnamon buns that was met with a response for the recipe. And so, I had to make them again. Which means that I had another 9×13 pan of cinnamon buns to eat. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it. As a side note my forehead has completely broken…

Rumor has it Monday is Christmas. Like what? Normally, I’m Mrs. Christmas. I love the season. The carols, the cards, the baking, cinnamon spice and everything nice.

Candles in the window, singing songs with my church family, gingerbread and tea waiting for me when I get…

Goodbye, 3 Birch Farm

Goodbye, 3 Birch Farm

Winter solstice, Christmas, New Years, this is the best time of the year. Reflection, rest, rejuvenate. And currently, we have been reflecting on 3 Birch Farm. We drove away from 3 Birch for the last time on Sunday. Everything was cleared out, everything…

The Quest for Order….and Underwear

The Quest for Order….and Underwear

Something wonderful happened on the farm last week. The farmer and farmher both got new underwear. I KNOW! Isn’t it exciting! Truth of the matter is, we’ve been going like mad people since we hit the ground running in September. And while we’re still running, the chill on the breeze has pushed me more inwards. Inside the house. Huddled in the warm kitchen with some sort of warm and comforting…
