Hey dirt lovers!
With winter in full swing, our runner ducks are happy in the gurgling stream which runs directly through their enclosure and makes me the the laziest (and happiest) of water fowl owners.
My minor obsession with goats has gone full boer (that's a goat joke) and I may or may not be researching electric fencing and secretly hoarding building materials.
The chickens are pecking their way through a variety of the 55+ pumpkins that exploded from the garden over the summer.
So, all's well on the farmette.
On the best days, I roll out of bed, make coffee and wander across the patio to my herb garden.
I pinch off some mint, sage, oregano, lemon thyme and rosemary to chill in water with lemon, lime or orange wedges for lunch.
Hours later, I can be found in the garden, still in my pajamas, elbows deep, ripping up weeds. Around noon, freshly laid eggs are liberated from the chicken coop and voila, lunch. Late summer omelets include cukes, tomatoes, and a variety of vegetables and herbs.
