A couple in their 60's, a 1940's army building turned into a 3 bedroom cottage, 2.5 acres, vegetable and herbal gardens, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, Great Pyrenees, rescue dogs and cats, living as simple and frugal as possible. That is what you will find written about here. Thank you for stopping by. Share anything you like and ask any questions you wish!
Finally named Gerda's baby girls. The black one with frosty ears is BeBe and the white with gray spots is Sissy.
Can't believe I haven't posted in a week but blame it on the weather. It has been so nice I am out in the veggie gardens, herb garden, or greenhouse every spare minute. The trees all have their leaves and our oak trees are already providing our canopy of shade I enjoy so well in the summer. The dogwoods have bloomed and gone already as well as the azalea blooms are almost gone. We have tiny tomatoes growing on a couple of tomato plants with others full of blooms. Herbs are doing fantastic. Tinker is due to have her puppies in a couple of days. This being her first she is nervous and doesn't know what is going on in her body. She weighs around a 130lbs and is trying to be a lap dog and sit in my lap the past couple days. I sit and brush her while talking to help calm her. Hopefully after the puppies are born she will feel lots better. Buttons still has to wait a couple more weeks before her kidding time is here. The chicks in the incubator are starting to hatch. Heard lots of peeps this morning. They were due to start hatching tomorrow. There were around 300 eggs but hope they all don't hatch! Tessa the turkey is sitting on eggs as well as Bonnie the goose. Have 6 ducklings with another duck making a nest with a few eggs. Will leave her and see if she sits.Am very thankful for crockpots and slow cookers. I start dinner in them right after breakfast so I don't have to come in early to start dinner and can get more gardening time in. I have taken on a small job for a couple days. I will be digging up and redoing some flower beds for one of William's customers. Will have to work on them in the late afternoons and evenings after I feed the animals but looking forward to making beautiful flower beds and getting paid to do it! I am also going to make them a herb garden next to their back porch. Saturday will find me at Tractor Supply selling baby bunnies.If you are in the area stop by. I promise not to talk you into a bunny. LOL Well my lunch break is over and its time to take care of the animals and get back to gardening. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to count those blessings!
