I thought I’d share a little bit more about my home, which is an organic homestead in Garrard County. Paint Lick, actually. Yes, that is the name of the nearest town (even the people at the post offices in the city raise their eyebrows at me when they see it.) We have only been on our land a little over a year, and are working towards being more self-sufficient/resilient. We compost. We garden. We heat our home with wood. We do have chickens, bee hives, sheep, milk goats, and lots of farm babies. And my babies! Here’s a little slice of an average day:
After barn chores comes time with my littles! They are fantastic. Brother said “I blowed her a crown!” The Littles and I spend a fair bit of time in the yard, where we have a couple of gardens. On this day, which was the day the breeze warmed up and the grass began to grow, the honey bees and native pollinator bees were converging on our ornamental pear tree. My littlest little spends her time in several different carriers. She helps me garden from her perch on my back.
Now summer is here, I spend less time at the barn, and these images from the earliest spring day make me look forward to cooler weather, and the expectation of new baby animals once again. :)
