With A Name Like "At The Farm"...

I'm sure you expect more farmish things when you stop by but it's winter and the farm in resting.  The grass hangs on in it's brown dreariness, the cows aren't calving yet so not too much excitement going on.

This is when we sew, warm by the fire, feed and water the animals and enjoy the fruits of our summer labors.  Soon it will be time to prune trees with our clothes layered to stay warm.

I am gonna let you determine my next post...any questions about life At The Farm?

i'd like to know the history of your farm.

I vote for history, too.

See, I know how you feel. I feel strange talking about our farm, when it's obviously not.

*hugs*

Hope you all have a wonderful day, Gail. ♥

I feel that I already know so much that I don't know what to ask for. You tell so many stories already. I say let them come naturally. Mayber you can talk about canning the food?

Yep, a great tale of how ya came to be 'At The Farm' would be great.

The Ponderosa is a third goin' on forth generation kinda farm...how 'bout you???

Hey girl, do ya have your high water waders out yet, it's comin' down by the buckets here. We needed a good rain.

Is your farming a necessity or a hobby? How much do you depend on it for your living. Hope you have a good day.

I'd like to hear history too . . . and also, sewing what . . . as you sit by the fire . . . quilts ?

TexWisGirl said...

how many head of cattle do you typically run? what breed?

Sue said...

The history appeals to me, too. And just more of the same. I like reading your thoughts...

And more poems, too!

Those are all wonderful wintertime "farm" activities that you are doing right now. We must all rest up during the "down" season so we have energy for the "busy" season!

Okay, here's my question: if there was one thing you could change about your farm, what would it be?

I'm content just to read your thoughts about each day- you have such a way with words. But I've said that before. Really, anything and everything you want to share is going to grab my attention!

Love reading anything you have to say about your life on the farm. It seems like most of the comments are wanting the history which would be fun to hear.
I loved reading this post too. It is that time of year to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labors.
Love
Maggie
