Well. . .farm girl is a little bit of a stretch, but some things have changed.
For one, we now have a tractor. . . A TRACTOR!!
Another thing that's changed is my desire to work in the yard. Pat and I have both discovered this change in ourselves. I guess that's a good thing since there's now five acres of yard to deal with. At the other house, we neglected the yardwork as much as we could get away with. However, I now find myself outside almost daily pulling weeds. In fact, I spent a large portion of this past weekend hunting air potato (an insanely invasive weed) sprouts to try and stop them as much as I can. And, I wasn't bothered at all that I was out in the dirt sweating away, hunting weeds. What is wrong with me?
Of course, the prospect being able to cool off in the pool after getting so hot could have something to do with it.
And now, Pat and I are talking about getting chickens. We've toyed with the idea ever since we decided we wanted to get some property. However, I think it's getting serious now, and I've got so much nervous excitement about the prospect.
See. . .I'm getting to be a farm girl. A weed-pulling, pool-floating, chicken-talking farm girl. And, I couldn't be happier!
Do you have chickens? I need tips, pros and cons, and lots of info. Share away!!
I'm a Farm Girl Now
I’m a jewelry-artist, treasure hunter, & nature-lover that finds joy in the smallest things. I hope to spread that joy and inspiration.

Green Acres with ZsaZsa Gabor comes to mind . . . but you aren't that far gone! I vote "yes" for chickens!ReplyDelete
I'm definitely nowhere near as glamorous as Zsa Zsa and we won't have pigs for sure. Glad yo know you're pro-chicken. We're actually thinking of picking them up this weekend. Eek!! We'll see how that goes. Thanks for taking a peek.Delete
Wow! A tractor and chickens sounds like a lot of work, thank goodness for the pool!ReplyDelete
Jenna, I don't run the tractor (yet), but the fact that we need a tractor to care for the yard is indeed a lot of work. We're enjoying it too though and are definitely thankful for the pool. Oh, and the chickens are just talk for now. . .though we have talked about picking some chicks up this weekend too. We'll see! :D Thanks for swinging by!Delete
