Really?!

People are just NOW seeing that prices are going to go up? Gas going up=Everything else going up.  For all of the people out there that laughed at me for getting chickens, a milk goat, and growing my own food.....Who looks like the smart one now?

That may have sounded mean, but people who have thought I was crazy before, are NOW the ones asking ME questions about gardens and chickens. Are they just now getting it? I guess, better late than never.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, prepper.

Good for you!! Just keep on doing what your doing!! People will always find something to laugh at someone, maybe they are just uncomfortable with themselves.

Rae said...

Lol. People think we're nuts too. Bet they change their tune this fall when we'll have fresh eggs from our hens, a full pantry from the garden, and a freezer full of pork. :)

Keep up the good work!

So true! We are saving so much money! I was surprised the other day that my neighbor would rather buy eggs from the grocery store than from me! People will be knocking on your door when you are the only one who knows how to be self-sufficient. Secluded, self-sufficient, solar powered ranch in Montana anyone?

I think we're going to see a lot of large home gardens this year. Can't afford anything at the markets! Something is amiss in the US...debbie

I laughed so hard at all you guys' comments. I felt like saying," How do ya like me now!" hehehehehe. I guess we have all been told we are a little different. Oh and Phelan, I like being different. lol.

I guess that goes with the song "How Do You Like Me Now". I have found that people dissown you when times are good but always come calling when they need something, like food. HMMM, I wonder if that is kinda like what the Lord feels like?

Hey, once your skin thickens you're known as a troll!LOL!!!! We've been at this for well over a decade and people, including our families, that thought us nuts are now admitting we were instead very WISE! I love it! Now to get them going and all prepped, so they don't move in with us*wink*

I've ALWAYS been of the belief that if the majority is doing it or beleives it I want NOTHING to do with it, LOL!!! I'd rather die free than a starved slave.

Hear Hear Kelle. My friends and family still think I'm nuts (although it does run in the family LOL) Mom just couldnt believe we wanted "dirty" chickens. Well now I have fresh eggs and only have to go to my backyard to get them. We have always planted a garden since we got married. Nothing wrong with being prepared, nothing wrong at all...
