It’s been a long while…I read lots of homesteading blogs so I’d guess I saw a link somewhere…and the rest was history!

I think I was searching the web for how to write a romance and came across Suzanne’s blog many moons ago.  I quickly became involved in her life and couldn’t stop reading!  Still check in at least daily, if not more.

I started reading the CITR blog when the kids were still numbers, there was only one dog, and maybe three cats, the ground had just been broke at Stringtown. I can’t remember what brought me here….(sometimes I can’t remember where I left the car at the grocery store). I can say: that what I read that day had to be entertaining or I would not have bothered to search the archives for any and all of the previous missed posts. I’m hooked, an addict! Love the stories, the photos, the honesty of the whole thing. The way Suzanne writes is easy for me to read. If that makes any sense. Waiting patiently for the book to be in my hands, it will be fantastic. I don’t do Facebook, so this will be my only entry:(      Thank you for everything Suzannehug. One day I hope to see you face to face.

I found out about CITR from reading the Moosletter from Cheesemaking.com.  I think it was Suzanne who made my husband and me so interested in making cheese.  From cheese curds (yum!) to lactic cheese and grandmother bread made from lactic cheese (yum!), we have delved further into cheese-land.  I hope to eventually have my own source of milk, and I look forward to eventually becoming more self-sustaining as well.  I enjoy reading the posts, and I have found so much inspiration for all kinds of things, from homemade hamburger helper to homemade soap to homemade hot dogs!  I love being able to show my children that you don’t have to buy things at the store.  chicken

I was looking for a recipe for a friend of mine.  She is now a follower too!

I had to start at the beginning to catch up on all the posts because I got hooked right away!

I aspire to be you but alas I’m stuck being a city girl.

I have been reading CITR so long, I don’t remember how I found the site, but I have used many of the recipes, so I may have been searching for something which led me here.  I have told many friends about the site and we regularly discuss the latest adventures of Suzanne.  I’d love to win a copy of the book.

I found out about CITR while my son was at Navy boot camp.  He graduated a couple of weeks after Ross.  He was involved in the rifle drill teamhappy-flower and took part in a couple of graduations before his own.  I was looking for a glimpse of him in people’s graduation pictures.  I saw Suzanne’s photos and from there discovered her blog.  I’ve been a fan ever since.

I found CITR by googling a recipe, also. Haven’t the foggiest idea what that recipe was. I found the recipe, and found a lot of really nice people. Hard to beat that!

Spring 2012 I had just been gifted 6 baby chicks and 2 hens and went online to research how to best care for them, and I found Chickens in the Road!

I knew immediately that it wasn’t all about chicken care, but I began reading and got hooked! This is hands down, my favorite blog!
Then I went on a CITR marathon, reading all the previous posts!

I already prepurchased the book online through Amazon, and I had planned to send my mother my copy when I finish reading it. If I win, I can keep a copy and still gift the other!

I first found Chickens in the Road through an article in the New England Cheesemaking Supply Company newsletter about Suzanne’s personal challenge to make a new kind of cheese each month.  As a cheese maker myself I was intrigued and impressed so followed the links to your blog.  I got hooked going through your many different categories and, as they say, the rest is history…happy-flower

I was looking for a recipe…orange marmalade if I remember correctly.  It has been about 2 years and I read every day!  I am a true farm girl stuck in southern California.  It won’t be for long though!  I can’t wait to read your book.clover

I was intrigued with your newspaper articles in the Charleston Daily Mail and looked up your website.  I really enjoy your articles and your website is great.  I hope to come to your open house in October.  I really would like to see and meet you, of course, but that funny goat too.

I stumbled across Chickens In The Road and remember giggling thinking I HAVE to check this site out, as it sounded so me!! We have had our share of animals through the years while our children were growing up. Our neighbors chickens often came to visit ours, and would always be “in the road”.. I am so delighted that I checked this site out. Though I have not been actively posting I have been following along this summer. We have had some hardships engulf us this season. Getting back into the groove now. I love everything about CITR, all the wonderful folks here and you Suzanne.. you all rock!!   hug

I found this site with a search for how to render lard after trying lard biscuits for the first time…then seeing the price for icky ‘hydrogenated lard product’ in the store.  After I got what I needed I came back to read other posts and fell in love with this site.  I read your posts every morning but have been lurking for the past 2 years.  Just registered today :)
