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.

Warmer Weather and Sandwiches

We are expecting the weirdest weather ever in the next couple of days. Instead of looking like the Ice Planet Hoth... we are going to have spring storms and temperatures in the 50*'s and 60*'s! I know its a false spring but its kinda nice to have all the hoses running and not to slide all over the ice.

Unfortunately tho, when we have these weird weather swings I usually end up under the weather. So me and Nicholas are holding down the couch today.


But nothing perks a person up more than a baked sandwich. So I made some. I've also got some chicken stock going on the stove. Tuesday we had a meat chicken day harvest and had incredible results. I don't think we'll be able to finish up tho. I need another day if sitting around.


Me, a hot sandwich, a mug of chicken stock, and Nicholas. That's what I've got going on today.

Happy Thursday everyone! Is your weather normal?

Our weather here in southwestern Illinois is the same. Sweet cornbread and ham and beans with ham hocks is cooking as I drink a cup of hot tea and read my seed catalogs ! HEAVEN !!!

HOT! thanks for sending the rain, I think you got our address wrong because we only got a few drops, but just a few km up the road got 10mL, but at least it cooled everything down so I could actually sleep last night! The only animals that are happy with this are the little guinea fowl keets, I don't even have to turn on the lamp in their brooder box as the outside temp is sufficient! Enjoy your false spring while it lasts....
