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

Gardening/Farming

Summer is Fading, Fall is Here!

I have seen my first yellow leaves of fall...  (I think depression is setting in!)  As the weather cools, I am gnawing my nails worrying over the coming winter, thinking about how few cold-weather clothes I even own, and agonizing over how much more hay I need to bring in.  I am feeling this strange sense of impending doom.  I know, really melodramatic, right?  Well, I haven't had fall or winter for nigh on 13 or 14 years.  Give me a break!

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.

It’s Official…

Sandhill Flats Farm is moving: sheep, chickens, horse, cats, and all! The Husband got transferred to NE Kansas. We will start our farm move on or around June 1. It's always an adventure with this guy!

Happy Easter

Harvesting Seeds

Choy sum grows like a weed here in Central Florida. It has won in the contest against kai lan (Chinese broccoli). I will only grow choy sum from now on, especially since I will have a billion seeds!

Winter is Here

The build up of winter storm Grayson froze us good. After four nights of subfreezing all-night temperatures, all the plants are dead, dying, or hybernating. It got down to 25 here.

Brrrr! Baby, It’s Cold Outside…

I am always incredulous when it frosts or freezes here in Florida. It just doesn't seem like it's possible, but it often happens here in Central Florida. Hence, we really have to watch the weather forecast so we are ready for it.
