Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.


Some times things happen for a reason.  Some times someone can cross your path at just the right time.  Some times we are given a sudden and unexpected opportunity to save each other.  And we take it. When Tina came into our lives, we were at a breaking point.  We had recently lost a lot […]

How many pots can a crackpot crock if a crackpot makes crockpot soap?

It was another hot day.  Which meant we had to play inside.  Again.  Although the boys were all up for going to see The Three Stooges at the $3 theatre.  Not gonna happen, boys.  I can manage a lot of Disney and Pixar.  But a remake of The Three Stooges is a flick for The […]

They’re Here! They’re Here!

Tomatoes and cukes in the garden today! Can I get an “Hallelujah”?

What’s it worth to you?

Everything has a value.  Which isn’t necessarily what something costs in the store.  After all, the seeds for these newly sprouted annuals and perennials were only $1 per pack.
