This site is about my life as a farmgirl, wife, mother and grandmother. We have a beautiful granddaughter and the cutest grandson. We own two farms in Craig County Virginia, leasing one and raising beef cattle on the other.
In six days it will be September 1st, where has the year gone?!?!? We prepare for winter all year practically by canning and freezing food, fattening the cattle, making hay and, of course, that critical harvesting firewood to stay warm.
Winter is upon us and 90* weather doesn’t much help the process so we continue to clean out the gardens, can and freeze all we can for us and the kids, and do minor repairs to the house and buildings as needed. Potatoes will be dug in the next week or so and then the apples will be harvested and stored. There’s more fencing to replace and of course, we can’t forget deer season is here in October and I have a new bow to use!!
This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
