Sunday treat

So the husband starts banging around with the kitchen trash can. Flame jumps on the porch couch and looks through the kitchen window to see what's happening. 

"Oh boy," says Flame, "we're going to get a ride in the truck." And she starts jumping up and down like Princess Flame Jumping Bean (Aimee's long-winded name for her).

And it's true, they do get to go for a ride in the Land Rover truck. We drive all of half a mile to the transfer station, where I unload the trash and sort the recycling, and then we drive home. At no point do they get to come out of the truck. But they love it all the same.

Every week. 

Dogs love routine, and this is their favorite routine.

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.
