Milk Pup

Jun
1


Casper gets SO EXCITED every morning when I come outside and pick up the milk pail. He knows what’s coming. He waits for me on the porch to come back. I still use a stainless steel stock pot that I sit inside this plastic milk pail. I like carrying a bucket with a handle, but I don’t have a stainless steel one, so I use my pot inside a pail method. (Maybe someday when I get RICH I will buy a stainless steel bucket!!) I pour the milk into quart jars before I come up to the house. I take the stainless steel pot inside to wash and leave the plastic bucket outside the door for the next day. Casper knocks it over right away and licks up whatever milk fell between the stainless steel pot and the plastic bucket. He lives for this moment each day.

And after it’s over, and he’s chewed on my chore boots and dragged them around the porch and knocked them over (because they smell like milk, too), he passes out on the welcome mat.


No more waiting for someone to hand you the “secret” starter! You can make your own Amish Friendship Bread starter from scratch. Let KentuckyFarmGirl show you how at Farm Bell today!

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....
