Over on the Farm ...

Hi, friends. Have you noticed fewer posts here at the blog? It's because I'm posting so often over at the Red Robin Farm blog, which is loads of fun.
I'm making soap:
lavender oatmeal, lavender, lemongrass poppyseed
We've put in an early herb garden bed with herbs I already had in pots:
Adam is testing whether I like a diet of collard greens and sweet potatoes, for future reference. The sausage, which is not in the long-term plans, came from Piggly Wiggly:
Adam finished tilling a 1/4 acre wheat field. He'll plant a blend of four non-GMO, heirloom wheat types:
The puppies are having loads of fun outside for hours while Adam works:
Not every meal is meatless, but even a little steak is pretty rare (haha!) around here:
We continue to make little pieces of progress on the house too, like installing the kitchen overhead light, painting the living room, and getting our last inspection. I think we're finally settling in.
Be sure to click over, and subscribe or follow the farm blog. When I'm not over here, I'm probably over there.


  1. I cannot remember the last time I had steak but the fried squash and onions for supper tonight were wonderful! Have you ever made sweet potato fritters? Delish!
    The soap looks great...nothing beats hand made soap.

  2. I love the soap! I put the farm blog on my roll so I won't miss posts anymore.
    Wow! You guys are farmers! Yay! Aw, the pups look very cute!

  3. I keep forgetting to add your new blog to my list -- will do so now.

  4. Mmm, I love sweet potatoes! For our dinner we had Soya and mozzarella burgers with a corn cob and then oven-roasted veg- potatoes, broccoli,red bell peppers, shallots, garlic, carrots, courgettes, Aubergine. Twas nice!x
    How long did that take Adam!??!?x

  5. I used to have two blogs. One for family, one for art. But it got to be a chore trying to post to both. So, I combined them and put it all on my art blog, which is now a "all of my life in one place" blog. I still have a link on the sidebar to my old blog because you don't want to lose those old posts! Both of your blogs are on my roll. I'm enjoying the continuing saga! :)

  6. I need to add Red Robin Farm to my blogroll too. Sounds like things are really coming along. I like your soaps!

  7. Homemade soap is wonderful, so much better than store bought.

    I am so enjoying your farm blog and all that is going on there.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady
