Pics of the day from her Aimee-ness

An excellent collection. Lambs up a tree, the new baby with his mom, seedlings in the hoophouse, and a close up of our tomato sprouts.

Spring seems to be in full force, with all the growth and green vigor. Ewes-a-lambing, hens-a-laying, sprouts-a-sprouting, peeps-a-peeping, and a partridge in a pear tree ...

No, no partridges, nor pear trees. But a dozen apple trees about ready to blossom.

Sometimes it's just good to be a human, on what Ed Abbey always called the best darn planet in the solar system. And it's good to be a homesteader when your homestead is steadily producing.

Just in case you thought of giving it all up for the good life, did I mention the blackflies?

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
