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.

Lard Inflicted Injury

Farming is not only the oldest profession... its the most dangerous. Seriously. Take today for instance, I got a lard inflicted injury today. Can you believe it?

Me (holds out hand to show my hubby): They got me.

The Big Man:  Holy cow!!!  Are you alright?!?!

Me:  It's just a flesh wound (I've always wanted to say that).

TBM: Seriously - how did you do that?

Me:  On the lard

TBM:  But lard isn't sharp!

Me:  But its kinda slippery.....

TBM:  Do you require medical attention?

Me:  Nope.  I poured tequila on it. (beats chest, inhales deeply) I'm good.

Just another day, another narrowly escaped visit to the ER.  Note to self:  Them pigs is still tryin' to get me. I hates pigs!

Here's the hunk of semi-frozen lard-to-be that got me.
