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.

So, it rained a little.... and sprouts!

After the last real snow... so we hope... it rained a little. Actually it rained a lot!  We are a big muddy soup now. Yesterday the ducks were hanging out by the new "pond" by the driveway. They thought it was terrific.

Everywhere. This mud soup is everywhere. 

The good news is that my sprouts are doing great! The bad news was that it was not supposed to freeze last nite....I woke up to 26*. I hope my salad is going to be OK.

Potential salad.

Today more sunshine! Allegedly this will be the last cold nite.

Just in case I started another tray of sprouts. I'm hoping for a salad by the end of may

In other news, The Big Man fixed the mower. You know what this means, don't you? Yes, that I will break it again soon. Yipeeeee!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

ROFL - last week I broke the tractor, the mower AND the weed-eater. Damn the man, he has now fixed them all....

ha! Kate, good thing we have fix-it-guys right?

I am not allowed to use the mechanical equipment. Which is great! Now Lester is the full time farm man he has taken loads of jobs off my shoulders, except weeding, which he does not have the patience to do!

you'd think that by now i'd have enough practice to be able to use the mower properly, Vera... nope. ha!
