Places To Go, Things To Do


This rooster has places to go, things to do!

What’s he running after so eagerly? Cracked corn? A lusty hen? A PILE OF FRESH COW POOP? (Oh so appetizing!)


He’s catching up to Fred and Jumbo! He loves this pair, follows them around the barn yard all day long!

Chocolate Croissants!


I’ve made SO many croissants lately. These chocolate croissants are my favorites. I need to do another croissants post, as I don’t make croissants the way I used to. Time! The time! I’m gonna try, since I’m slightly croissant-obsessed lately!

  1. February 20, 2017 - Farm Crop

    Since the Great Flood last summer, numerous items have turned up on the farm, washed up from the flood waters, to be harvested like a wild crop. One of my favorites is this vintage Royal Crown Cola bottle.

    I did some research on the bottle. Like many manufacturers, RC used different bottle styles during different periods of time, which helps to date the bottle…. Continued…

  1. February 16, 2017 - Early Easter Basket

    Spring seems early here this year with this back and forth warm weather, and apparently so is Easter!

    The new Araucanas (from last summer) are starting to lay their pretty little blue and green eggs. A lot of their eggs are small right now, as first-timer eggs tend to be, but some are already starting to lay bigger eggs. I’ve missed the blue and green eggs … Continued…

  1. February 3, 2017 - Coming In the Gazette Metro

    Charleston Gazette Metro Section writer Bob Saunders, on the left, with a Gazette photographer (unfortunately, my brain has lost his name), visiting the farm last week to do a piece on me and the farm, workshops, etc, which will appear in the Gazette Metro’s special Travel & Tourism edition later this month. It was snowing the day they were here, taking pictures and video–of me, freezing, … Continued…

  1. January 19, 2017 - Free At Last

    Free at last, free at last, the chickens are free at last! (I should have posted this on Monday. Heh.) This winter has been really hard on the chickens. We have rain instead of snow, and temperatures fluctuating between mildly warm and slightly chilly. And the forecast calls daily for mud, mud, and more mud. I have young chickens in the chicken … Continued…

  1. January 16, 2017 - The Winter It Was Weird

    These are some of the newer Blue Swedish ducklings (all grown up!) that I got a few months ago, along with the Black Swedish and Cayugas. This picture is from last week when we had around 3 inches of snow followed by a few days of single digit and teens temperatures. Then it was nearly 70 degrees. Then it was 40. And now … Continued…

  1. img_2958 December 23, 2016 - I Dream of Pepperoni Rolls

    When I posted A Hand-Crafter’s View of Etsy a week ago (December 15), I’d had 160 sales in my Etsy shop. A week later, I’ve had 226 sales. Do the math, you know what I’ve been doing! All of those sales weren’t pepperoni rolls, but probably half of them were. I’ve never made so many pepperoni rolls in my life. I … Continued…

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....
