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.

It's HOT - do you know where your sprinkler is?

Baby, its hot!  Do you know where your sprinkler is?  I do... 6:24am and its on the job.

The Meeps know how to cool off.... with a little swimmin' and a little divin'...
All Meeps in the water!
But wait.. didn't I just say not to put ducklings in the water?? Ah yes... but these are Meeps - goslings in the common tongue.. and for some reason they seem to be much more precocious...and they are bigger so they have more body mass to keep them warm.  And it was hot hot hot so no danger of getting chilled when the water is warm and the sun is hot. We took them back inside and put them under their lamp. They were thoroughly meeped out....and fell into a deep meep-sleep.

Stay cool! And get out there and get your sprinkler goin'!

How much area do you have planted?

Will OD let them back into the gaggle when they get bigger?

Its their funny little butts and all the wagging around! Oh golly they are cute! And they are so happy to see us! Thats the best part for sure.

We dont know if OD and the goose crew will take them back or not.. at this point its more about if WE are willing to give them up! We are totally smitten....
