Changing our Blog and our garden

I have been talking with the boys today, well for the past several days. We think we would like to change the title and scope of our blog. Yes we have a ton of animals here and love this place to write about each and every one of them. But we also have so many other things going on here at our mini farm. And we need a place to share those tid bits as well. We grow organic produce, for ourselves and to share with our close friends, not in a business sort of way though. And we are looking at ways to cut our energy costs, live more green and eat better for our bodies.

So we are trying to think of a new title and will change it when we do, for now the title will stay the same but the content may be expanded.

Now we are coming to the end of our garden harvest. We have had such a great garden this year. And now we are harvesting the last of our tomatoes. We probably have a couple more weeks left on that end. It is so fulfilling to go out into the garden and bring back supper. Something about it just makes me feel like I am living such an abundant life, which I am. I love having a huge basket of tomatoes, or cucumbers or squash. We have had such great crops this year. Green beans, okra, radishes, corn, herbs, blueberries, black berries, rhubarb, our summer has just been so full of such wonderful, tasteFUL food. We have corn for our chickens, they LOVE fresh corn too. The deer ate our soy beans, second year in a row. Which is fine with us. Glad we could be of service, LOL. We try to plant more than we will need to leave some for the other critters that roam our property, and so far, that philosophy has worked out well for us. We have not had to use any type of deterrent for the pesky critters. We compost regularly, yes the chicken and rabbit "left overs" and also from the house as well. So we have a great compost heap waiting for us. Probably in a few more weeks we will be getting ready to mix the compost into our garden for next years crops.

Hopefully within a couple of years I will feel confident enough in our gardening to try a few more interesting things. We will see.

Ahhhh love the feeling.
