Sandhill Flats Farm: The Unbelievable Move to Kansas

Tales of stunning sunsets, happy sheep, and peace and quiet on a 10-acre farm in Central Florida (soon to be Northeast Kansas).

When People Leave Their Pets Behind…

The house we purchased here in Northeast Kansas ended up coming with two cats, 12 chickens, and two ducks! Yes, the sellers left their pets behind. Can you believe it? Neither could we. We continue to be horrified.

Moving: Part II & Yoga With Cats

We are all moved! It's taken me a while to sit down and admit this as it's been "traumatic". I returned to Kansas with the last load on June 29, and we didn't finish unloading the truck until yesterday!

Trailering Horses Long Distance 101

The next morning she wouldn't load up. We tried everything including coercion, extortion, bribery, and asking nicely, for close to 8 hours. The horse would not go in.

Delivery! Ewes Go To Kansas

Toto, we're not in Florida anymore! The ewes have landed and have been taste-testing the grasses and weeds in Kansas for the last 10 days. They've also been through a really severe thunder storm already. We had 60-70 mph winds and a t-storm night before last. No hail, thankfully.

PermaNet Tryouts & Weed Wacking

Well, the weeds are growing fast now! Meanwhile, we just got 2 inches of rain, which we desperately needed for the grass as it was down to the quick! It's time for these ewes to do some weed wacking!

Moving: Part I

Did I mention I don't want to go to Kansas?  My onions are growing nicely finally!  Also, my green onions, leeks, and beets.  I won't get to eat any muscadine grapes this year, and it looks like it's going to be a bumper crop!  I feel so interrupted.  

Hedgerows

Recently I've become fascinated by the British and their iconic hedgerows.

Finishing Projects

I admittedly have a track record of "finishing" projects 95% of the way before I move onto something else. As long as the product is functional, I always seem to get sidetracked from doing the finishing touches! I really want to curb that kind of behavior and really start finishing things 100%.

Springtime

Spring is fully here for all of us, and I hope it is for you, too.
