Still Around

Nothing much going on...still hot....rain is intermittent...

Gardens are done - couldn't take the heat.  I planted a new round of beans (yellow this time)...the deer ate them...the only thing that grows now are the weeds.

Still commuting for work...getting really old after four years now.

Chickens are still giving us eggs...and we are grateful for them.

Planning our next camping trip...have learned not to do these during the summer.  Hopefully in September....

Hope everyone is doing well!

117 here today as I was running errands in Big City. Have to go hose down the chickens at least once a day. The garden -well some of it anyway- is still surviving. The peas, tomatoes, and sunflowers are goners.

Hi folks,one thing that I would advise people on,which we are doing now,is start NOW learning how to cook and prepare food for a homestead.Granted you can't have chickens in the city. I read EVERYTHING I can get my hands on and experiment constantly.Poor hubby and his stomache,oh well.But I have been reading your blog and I think it's great.We have purchased property ourselves and will be moving come March.

Just dropped by to see how things are going. Have you given up blogging???

I feel your pain. We are doing the same as you but we are putting two kids through college along with starting our farm/homestead. Dont give up and never give in. Things will be ok and work out in the end. I believe there are forces out there that do not want us to succeed. The best thing to do, keep trying. You have to learn to fall before you learn to walk!
