About me

love life love gardening love farm love farm animals love seeing young people turning back to natural food, truly it is the exact way our grandparents lived life. Chickens, cattle, horses, hunting and fishing fresh vegetables from fields, not gardens, even pure water. They had extended family on farm nearby. Go swimming in the creek, with watermelon from the field floating in the cool water. I WANT CHICKENS GROWN NATURAL WITH NO HORMONES. I joined site cuz wondered how to start. Got it. I will keep you posted on the project!

Current project

Painting pictures. downsizing possessions that have no meaning, or use. closets, furniture, and garage ~~~husband loves collecting tools which I cannot cull through. The cars are parked outside and test my patience. And that is a task between me and God.

Type of gardener

My pet project ~~ I have a small field of white day lilies in their second year. will divide this fall. Should have 4-5 times my present field. I think I will have to &#x27;talk my husband into making a new field with his new mode of transportation on the farm ~a tractor!. He will have to start now to figure out how to plow!!! <br/> <br/>I am planning for a home for chickens.
