Dear Readers

So sorry, I’ve been MIA.   Thank you for your concern and worry over our well being.   We are all fine; however, we’ve had a tremendously busy and utterly exhausting week!

A few out of town visitors to entertain, helping out friends with certain needs,  donating our time to help our school neighbors put in a vegetable garden for the kids, emails on top of emails to reply to (thanks for writing and patience in our getting back with you!) invitations to Earth Day celebrations, canning classes to prepare for, and last but some exciting developments that, God willing, will expand our work and outreach.  If you follow us on Facebook you will see some of the exiting happenings this week.

Also like take this time to thank a few supporters for their kind and generous donations.   We are humbled and extremely grateful.

Hopefully, next week will be a less disruptive one, so I can sit down and get some half written posts out of my draft queue!

Happy Spring Y’all!

    No longer on facebook, but would love to know about your plans. Maybe, just maybe, you might copy and paste your facebook posts once a week. If not, that’s OK. I enjoy reading your blog–A LOT!

    So I just found out that we will be traveling again during gardening season. This is my plan. I’m going to start my seeds in Apr and plant them out June 1. With deep mulch, automatic sprinklers, and ditch irrigation, the watering and weeds should be OK. As we come and go, I can fertilize with kelp tea. Sounds good? Anyway, I hope to still get a harvest.

    My elderly neighbor across the street said his family did something like that in the old days. As sheep ranchers, they took the sheep up the mountain after planting their garden at home in the valley. In the fall, they harvested cabbage, carrots, potatoes, and onions for the root cellar and canned beans, tomatoes, pears, apple sauce, and peaches.

    I’m sure hopeful that it will work. Wish me luck!

    Greetings and Happy Spring to all of you,
    We read you regularly and truly enjoy all you write. You have inspired us senior citizens to do more toward self-sufficiency and utilize our 1/3 acre to plant more of our food. We do enjoy gardening and the fruit from our trees. Even in Wyoming, many fruit trees and bushes will produce heartily.
    We don’t go near facebook, but would love to read of your expanding plans. I second the invitation to post some of them on your blog, also, but realize time is critical for you.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration.

    Not on facebook either, so I third the invitation to post some on this blog….We woke up to snow yesterday morning – just enough to blanket everything, fortunately it was gone by evening. Woke up to sunshine today so continued to put the compost/mulch on the garden – now we have rain clouds moving in and the breeze is still tinged with winter. We have been running 10-15 degrees below normal – wish some of that summer mid-west weather would move our way 🙂

    Love your blog, though.

    Anais, I do have facebook but I’m still trying to figure out how to follow the trail of events in order on yours. I believe that the entries skip left to right top to bottom. It’s just a different way then I’m used to.

    Spring is a very busy time for me as well. My blogging suffers greatly. So much has to be accomplished all in a short time. With the new garden expansion and fence building, it’s definitely go to bed tired every day time. I don’t mind because spring is my favorite season as I slide into the golden years of life. :0)

    I’ll try to catch more on facebook. Have a great busy spring day.

    Hi .. Not on F.B. either … don’t want to touch it with a 10 ft. pole since Evil “M” bought out the intelligence division of BW. Always check-in here though so would love to hear about the “goings on” from time to time. Glad everyone is doing okay.
