Here in The Good Land I made my place beside the still waters. I became a tiller of the soil, a keeper of the flocks, and a hater of pigs.
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.
A few shots from my walkabout this morning... tons going on and everyone is enjoying a cool morning:
The tomatoes are really starting to come on.. I'm guessing the first of the Romas will be ready in a couple days. Until then these little Sweet 100's are just the ticket. Lightly sauteed in olive oil, add eggs and scramble, a few fresh herbs, and finish with goat cheese - that's my breakfast today.
Have I shown you my Salmon Faverolle chicks? The dark one is Mr. Tibbles, he is the roo. His gals are Eliza and Jane. If you zoom in you can see they have an extra toe! Creepy, but they are going to be beautiful. They don't have a momma so I'm going to see if Mrs. Dowlrimple will allow them to share the big day coop. She might take them on. No sign of Mrs. Beezley's chicks - I hope they hatch.
A few sprouts - I'm going to get these beans in just under the wire..the last frost that is...
My bean ladder is doing great. I bought this ladder for $5 at a yard sale, used outdoor paint to spiffy it up, secured it with a tpost (with a screw thru one of the holes)...these beans should be ready soon.
Sunflower... bee.... moon... I just love these shots.
And the pigz. My hatred for them grows as they get bigger. I fix my eye on the hams and dream of bacon.
In my previous life I was a fussy, type-a tech gal..and now.. now here I am in the flyover zone on a farm. I gave up my Big Life and I became a tiller of the soil, a keeper of the flocks, and a hater of pigs.
