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.

More On The Peach Tree... and Farmer Liz's book give away!

I'm still standing by my earlier assertion that I will not complain about the rain no matter what.....

This poor little peach tree....

Altho..... The other side of the peach tree flopped over. Ugh! And wow what a rain we had! The other day we got about 2.5 inches. It still wasn't enough to knock the humidity out of the air but finally....last nite's cold front finally did the trick. Our 90*+ heat wave is over and now we have smooth sailing for the next week. I'll be able to get back to the garden just as soon as the mud swamp dries out.

Until then today is an all day Pickle Mania. More on that later.

But what I really want to tell you about is Farmer Liz's superduper book give away! Check out the round up she did for her series on "Getting Started With Growing Your Own" - the chicken edition. Great interviews with folks who love their chickens and how we all got started. I talked about my interview here.

Farmer Liz is giving away a copy of her favorite chicken book, which is also MY favorite chicken book, The Small Scale Poultry Flock by the best poultryman in the business, Harvey Ussery.

The giveaway is for Australian readers only, as Farmer Liz lives in Oz, but for everyone else you can find Mr. Ussery's stupendous book in my bookstore or by using the Amazon.com search box on the right side of this page.

Are you thinking of getting started with growing your own? How about getting started with chickens? Check out what other folks have to say and how they got started! Thanks, Farmer Liz for this great series!

Happy Wednesday everyone, anyone else have a hellacious rain?
