It’s been a while since we’ve shown you some of our animals so today we’re taking you along as we do our morning chores.
We have hard, clay soil here. I’ve been working for several years to build up the soil in my garden and have come a long way. I just need something that will give it that extra boost and I think I found it.
Most of our seed sprouted and have grown enough that we need to get them transplanted.
We had snow and freezing temps but it was cozy warm inside our cattle panel greenhouse… actually it was a little too warm!
We finally got some snow and that made someone pretty happy!
It’s a windy day here in Kansas! Just thought I’d give you an update on the cattle panel greenhouse and how it’s holding up in all this Kansas wind!
The pig feeder has rusted out on the bottom otherwise it’s in good shape. We don’t want to buy a new one so we figured out a way to fix it. Now it will get us through this season, and hopefully more!
Today is the first day of the season to milk our goat. We shared with the pig… but she wasn’t so sure about it.
We’re fixing a pot of chili to celebrate our 6th year of homesteading. Join me as I make chili and talk about how this last year has been.

Our last bunny had her kits and we get our wood burning stove installed in our shop.
In this video we show you all our board games and how we store them, plus we point out some of our favorites.
The day we’ve been waiting for is here… the new bunnies were born.
Since we down sized and rearranged our animals for winter, our chores are short and easy now.
We made a few more preparations for winter and now have all the animals tucked in where they need to be. Fences are fixed, hay is stock piled… so we’re ready for winter whether we want it to come or not!
We’re having lovely weather so it’s the perfect time to get out and make preparations for winter before it gets colder.
It’s Halloween and we’re getting all our work done so we can go trick-or-treating out and about on the town.
Join us while we carve our pumpkin!
Winter is fast approaching so I’m planning out how we’ll arrange the animals to make chores easier during the cold months.
We picked our pork up from the processor today and got our freezer stocked. So, how much meat did we get from 2 pigs and what did it cost?
We’ve been interested in seeing what the poultry auction in our area is like. Since we’re downsizing for the fall, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to go. Let’s just say… it was an adventure!
In this video I show you how simple it is to make Dilly Beans.
We’re celebrating being here on the farm for five years. I thought I’d share my great grandfather’s story, from a newspaper article he wrote, of his journey here and how he claimed the land we now live on.
We started out the day with our usual chores. Got a batch of apple butter started and chicken canned. The turkeys keep following Miley around and she’s a little weirded out by it because she’s not sure of their intentions.
Cutting butter into flour is always a lot of work to me. In fact I usually put off making anything that involves having to cut butter into flour. Just ask my husband how long it’s been since I’ve made him a pie… yep, he’ll tell ya it’s been longer than a year.
