A Picture Worth a Thousand Giggles

Harvested Our Cabbage

This year we’ve been having good luck growing some vegetables that we’ve normally had trouble growing in the past. The first one is broccoli…


I have to laugh because in past years our broccoli never looked that good, in fact it didn’t really resemble anything like this at all. When Brooke saw that, she said, “Wow, I can’t believe that came from the garden. It looks like what you’d find in the store. It’s awesome!”

Just the name alone sounds pretty disgusting and like something you should be pretty alarmed about.  Luckily it’s harmless, to people and pets and actually beneficial to plants because it breaks down organic matter which adds nutrients to the soil.

One Eggstraordinary Day… NOT!

It was just one of those days, I don’t even know how to describe it, other than it definitely was NOT Eggstraordinary, it wasn’t eggcellent or eggceptional either. I guess I’d say it was pretty eggy and plenty messy…

Doing a Little Companion Planting

I’ve wanted to grow some herbs and try drying them this year. I bought some and planned on making a little herb garden but never got around to getting it done. Then I went on a short vacation before I got them planted, and for some reason they started dying. So instead of planting them in their own little garden, I decided to do some companion planting and put them in with vegetables that they grow well with.

How We Process Chickens


Chicken processing can be quite intimidating, especially if this is your first time doing it. This is our 7th time to do it, plus we’ve also processed our own turkeys 4 times. Each time it gets a little easier because we learn something new or discover a different way to do something that helps us to become more efficient at it. Here’s how we process our chickens…
