Thoughts from one busy mom to another.
Teaching the next generation has already begun!
And Landon is a very willing student when it comes to eating strawberries out of the garden. But...
He has a long way to go when it comes to learning his colors. LOL
Fortunately, we had an incredible crop of strawberries this year. This video was taken on May 31st, and we've never before harvested as many berries as we did this year.
Not only did everyone eat as many as they could, but we also shared some with friends and froze (best guess)...
Traditions are super, super important to me. And so I'm always looking for a way to add a new tradition to our family!
Years ago, we started having a weekly homemade pizza night. But over the years, as we moved to the new farm, for some reason, we dropped that tradition.
But it's back!!
And better than ever with the addition of our outdoor wood-fired pizza oven.
Enjoying watching the chaos that is our weekly pizza night!

Gardening takes soooo much time and effort!
So why do I do it?
I have lots and lots of reasons...
And then there is the reason I discuss in today's video!!

I have a very large garden and I spend a LOT of my time in the garden.
It's never mostly not a chore, but instead, a time that I look forward to. Gardening relaxes me and gives me a chance to think and pray and plan.
We've been constructing new garden beds and filling them with soil. And because all of the soil has been turned over, all the weed seeds have been exposed and the new beds are full of weeds.
After spending a few hours weeding, I sat down for a break and just thought about...
Our goats are a part of our family.
As you can tell, Greyden knows each and every one of them by name and points each of them out as they hang out in the field one afternoon.
They are due in about a month and the anticipation of new baby goats is starting to build!
Are you looking forward to the new kids?

We've lived at our farm for about 8 years. And every year, I save up some money so that I can expand and improve on our gardens.
This year, our garden has been getting a major addition.
During construction, we had to remove the raspberries from where they were and then "store" them while the new beds were built.
As a result, the raspberries have been transplanted twice.
Some of the raspberries have handled the transition well... and some haven't.
Find out if we have been able to...
I love living in the country. There is always something new to learn about the land or animals.
We were enjoying dinner at a friend's farm the other night. They keep 4H pigs for some of the local young people who can't keep pigs at their own homes.
After dinner, the pigs went out for a walk!
I'll be honest, I've never seen that before so I filmed it and asked some of the questions that I was curious about.
I hope you enjoy learning some basics about 4H pigs!
