Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Finally. A little relief....

The best thing about Friday was.....

... it rained. Finally!

And all God's people said... Amen.

Looks to be more later this week - we could be catching a break from this dry weather. I'm working on planting root veggies for the fall including more beets, turnips, and carrots. If we can't get reasonably priced corn, by golly, we'll have fodder for the stock.

Is everyone getting their turnips in? Remember what the old timers say, "Wet or dry by July 25."  I also think I can get another round of beans in...here's to hoping!

Happy Monday everyone!
