Have you ever thought "I'm not that busy" only to get ill for several days and have to reschedule or cancel so many different things that you can no longer believe that statement:) That was my life this week. Most of the time I know I am busy (as most mom's are), but assume that since that is my "normal" there is no reason to change in any way. After this week, having to let go and do some necessary self care, it was a good reminder that not only do I "get to" instead of "have to", but that if I don't-the world still goes on:) Happy Mother's Day!
It's mid March and we, as most people, are craving signs of spring. Over the last week we have had signs from mother nature: rising temps, rain not snow, and thawing ground. All of which have resulted in what I refer to as "mud and flood" season. Granted I appreciate this more than the ice and mud season of earlier this month, but it does bring up its own challenges on the farm. We are grateful to live on a hill, so overall our flooding concerns were small.
However, last night we had the surest sign of all that spring is here: the dogs now smell like skunk!
We are thrilled to be a part of the Soil Sisters Weekend August 2-4, 2019. Please see the Soil Sisters website for more information and we hope to see you then!

We continue to try and find ways that we can be more kind, humane, and sustainable on our farm. One that I recently noticed we doing was using coconut oil as a lubricant when working on machinery and/or outdoor projects. We have found it to be nature's WD 40:) It is much safer to have around our curious dogs/cats/chickens who roam about while we are working. It also allows us to know exactly what we are using which helps us to be more responsible as well. Hopefully we will continue to find ways big and small to make a difference on our farm.
