Working On


What I’m working on right now….. My homemade liquid soap shampoo and body wash recipe, with an herbal infusion. I’m getting ready to sell my made-from-scratch shampoo in my Etsy shop. (This is genuine liquid soap, made with potassium hydroxide by the hot process method, not a fake liquid soap from pre-fab ingredients. It’s the real deal, the whole way, and all natural.) I’m doing lots of test runs and prototypes, making sure I have it just right. I should be ready to start selling it within the next week or two. (That’s my “Chocolate Kisses” Rustic Farmstead Soap in the background.)

Giving Me the Evil Eye


Pumpkin (left, Glory Bee’s calf), and Gingersnap (Moon Pie’s calf). Calves always look at me so suspiciously when I walk into a field.

Why are you here, Woman?

Are you going to take my mommy away to work?

What do you WANT?

    Check in with Bossy and Oreo–isn’t Oreo growing?! She’s 10 months old now, so she could start cycling at any time. But it’s best not to breed a heifer until around 12-13 months old, so she and her mama are separated to a field to themselves for now. Bossy is already bred, so she doesn’t need to see her boyfriend right now anyway. … Continued…

    That title makes it sound like I’ve been on an alcohol binge, doesn’t it? Heh.

    But actually it refers to the two cheeses made by participants at this past weekend’s hard cheese workshop at the farm. They were guided through the creation of a Blue Gouda and a Beer Cheddar. Now the two cheeses are air drying before being waxed. The cheese waxed by … Continued…

    I’ve never had Little Ceasar’s Crazy Bread Bites, but I saw a commercial for them on TV and instantly craved them. MUST. HAVE. So I made some, homemade.

    This was too dead simple to do a recipe post–it’s just garlic breadsticks, cut in pieces, then melting cheeses on top with diced jalapenos, crumbled bacon, and whatever else you want. And they’re delicious!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
