Grateful 2

I am so grateful for the knowledge that my husband and I have that was acquired from our parents, grandparents, and family that knew and taught us so much about how to live on the farm and provide for our family. The knowledge is so far-reaching in so many aspects of life. The knowledge of respecting and the regard for others and our land always uppermost in our minds.

The knowledge of caring for and feeding our family. The knowledge of sharing our life and way of life so that when we are gone they can if they so desire to use and share it with their family and friends.

Gardening, managing the orchards, grafting trees, fishing, hunting, logging and cutting firewood, preserving food, caring for livestock, raising your own livestock, feeding all the animals on the farm, operating farm machinery and so much more is knowledge we have tried to pass on to our children and grandchildren.

Beautiful 4 x 4 bales that the cattle will love come wintertime!!
When the sap goes in the pans it’s clear as water and the longer it cooks the more golden it becomes.
Grain and hay feeding our cattle
Left-hand side of the cellar shelves are overflowing!
They’re really nice this year and sooooo sweet!
And these logs to saw up, split and stack.
We had this stack of wood that didn’t need split to stack.
Rabbit ration, carrots, apples and lots of green grass is their diet that they’ve been eating for three weeks. My granddaughters love bananas too.

FAMILY IS EVERYTHING!!!

    Love, love, love this post, Rita. So well said, so full of love as well as reminding us all of how much work there is in farming, and also values that carry over to all aspects of life. And the pictures are perfect. You need to open a store to make use of all those preserves! 😊
