Things have been going good here. Things are, so far, looking up. We changed doctors for Hubby. I don't know about you, but I don't like a doctor that throws pills at you and says, "Take these and come back in 3 months. If they worked, we know we diagnosed you right." Uh.....no. We don't "just" take pills to "see". Anyway, we found another doctor that believes in natural medicine along with modern day medicine. She also specializes in stomach issues. She is a great find! We got to talking and she informed me that the food that we eat today has caused so many of the health problems that are out there today. I would love to be able to sit and pick her brain for a few hours, but I'm sure that would be expensive. :0)
We have been trying to eat as much organic food as we can. It's hard. I will be the first to say that our diet wasn't the best. Now we have to change our "tastes" of food. I've been spending time going over the Internet looking for recipes and such. Pintrest is a life saver. With me working, it's also harder to find the time to make the good meals that we need. I'm having a little problem trying to balance work, farm work, and house work. I didn't realize how much there is!!!
The garden is starting to produce now. Lots of cucumbers and peppers. The cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen also. The bigger tomatoes are starting to develop nicely. Hubby put up the rabbit fence around the whole garden yesterday so I'll be able to go in and weed the garden now. I know that doesn't make since, but I had to keep weeds in my beans to hide them from the rabbits. If I weeded them, the rabbits thought I was uncovering the beans just for them. Now that the fence is up, I'll try to make that garden look like it should. Plus, I can plant more beans and other things for the fall.
I keep having good things to tell you all. We had a new calf born! We think it's a heifer.(girl) She will be a keeper. No freezer time for her. With cattle prices being so high, having a heifer born on the farm was good news indeed. She will, hopefully, give us many years of more calves. I haven't been able to get too close to her for a picture just yet. The three older cows that we have are wild. They won't let us near her. I promise though, I'll get a good picture and post it on here. She is the color of a chocolate bar. We called her Hershey.
Another good thing happening around here....The "dream thing" is coming true. I wished I could tell you more, but I want it to be official before I can tell you all what it is. This, keeping it a secret, is driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!! It's hard for me to keep in good news! Oh well, it will be out soon. I hope. :0)
Well, I'm going to get off here and get back to work. No time to relax around here anymore.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, good news teller and secret keeper.
