Yesterday I came home and found the most amazing thing sitting on my bed. Ten trees from the Arbor Day Foundation packaged in a white bag with a picture of a stork on the front. We got their Autumn collection and look forward to watching the trees grow and the leaves change from season to season. We'll be planting them in pots for now, until we get our home and they will be transplanted into the perfect spots.
In June of 2011, my husband, three of our five children, our Black Lab (Blue) and our four inside cats (Freak, Fizzle, Rusty, and Bella) and three rabbits (Luna, Midnight and Winchester) have been living at our 1.3 acre farmhouse. We’ve been working on converting the land back to a farm. Since moving here, we’ve acquired a Great Pyrenees (Ollie), a number of outside kitties, a handful of goats, a couple sheep, a couple alpacas and bees/chickens are scheduled to arrive Spring of 2013. We also planted a number of fruit trees on the property (and plan to add a few more) and have been working on putting in gardens to grow as much of our own food as possible. We certainly aren’t experts in any of this, please join our adventure as we muddle through becoming farmers, beekeepers, shepherds and more.
