Family Visits the Farm
It's been a busy and exciting weekend - we're almost there with paperwork for purchasing our home and then comes the fun on the other side - selling ours. I can't say I am looking forward to it very much but I am keeping the faith that it will sell quickly. Pray for us: 7 adults (yes, that's one more than the last count), 1 bathroom, teeny tiny house and multiple showings...ack!
We took all the kids to the house today (all nine of us showed up)since the sellers were having another open house - we prayed for rain so no one else would come :) It rained but a few people came through anyway! It's our third visit there and I am starting to feel like it's home.
I asked about the rhubarb - there are two great big patches - one in the sun that is ready earlier in the spring and one in the shade for a little later. The gardens were more uncovered today as we've had some nicer weather to melt the snow. The largest plot is out front of the house and split into 4 sections by a gravel path - I see an English Country garden - I can hardly wait to start digging in the dirt.
The kids were outside exploring the barn and the yard and realised that there is a small paddock at the front of the barn - perfect for a few goats. The fence is very secure and there's a gate - I wonder if some acrobatic goat will still be able to get out somehow. I've heard lots of stories!
Our amazing adventure of God proportions continues...
I am a mom to many and a wife to my best friend. We live on 10 acres of heaven on a small farm that needs lots of work and will keep us busy for years! We love people coming to visit, animals and the peace and quiet that you can only appreciate after living in the city for 20 years. I love to write about our adventures in homesteading, country living, food storage, canning and emergency preparedness.
