How lucky we have been the last few days here. The weather is breathtaking, so warm and so windy. I love to do wash on days like this and hang them out on the line. They smell so good and so clean. Well my chickens are just about old enough to start laying. They are a comical bunch of girls. As you can see from the picture these 3 are the most curious and there is nothing safe with them around. They are the first out in the morning and always the last to come in at night , and usually I must persuade them to get them to go in. I can not imagine life with out chickens now that I have had them so long. I can not wait for them to start delivering the goods. It did get so cold here this winter for a couple weeks that my husband truly thought that I would be knitting them little sweaters. Yes I am a knitter and crocheter and I love to sit out on my deck, enjoying the view of the woods, listening to the chickens and working on a little knitting project. I have been busy though the last couple of months though as my dear husband gave me a new puppy for Christmas. She is a doll and I truly love her but she does keep me hopping and my knitting bag is not safe unattended with her around. She and her brother, my little wiener dog do give me delight all day though and I would be lost with out them........... and my chickie girls! Well guess I better get to knitting. I have been working on making washable , reusable swiffie covers and I love the fact that I don't have to spend money on those toss aways to keep my floors clean. Come back often and stay as long as you like. You will see updates on the girls. the puppies and the knitting projects. Take care and be blessed.
Welcome to my little farm in the city.
This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy
