Asparagus! It’s what’s for dinner….

First fruits (okay, vegetables) of gardening this year!

I’m not sure why so many people think asparagus is hard to grow. It isn’t. Maybe it’s because it can be so dang expensive in the grocery store that people just assume it must be hard. Or maybe it’s the patience factor….. Continue reading “Asparagus! It’s what’s for dinner….”

Natural Wellness Class 8pm CST 3/24…’s gone to the dogs!

Good morning friends! You know I’m about all things wellness oriented by now…. our farm is run as organically as possible, and that includes what we use on ALL of our animals. I am not teaching this online class tonight, but I have friends who are. This is an open class, so all you have to do is put in a request to be added to the class and there ya go… you’re in!

If you’d like to protect your pup in a healthier fashion, sign up, and then take notes on what’s best for your best friend. Cancer and AutoImmune disorders are on the rise within the dog population just as they are in humans…. no surprise. They tend to be exposed to even worse stuff than we expose ourselves to. Learn how to ditch toxins and switch to natural options. And remember, just like in us, all positive health changes begin in the gut…. not just in humans, but with dogs too. Ol’ Roy and Alpo are both junk food doggie style!

I’ll be sitting in on this class tonight too. Hope to see ya’ll there!

Please FB message Melissa Eaton @  and she will get you added to the class invite list.

(PS: please message me if for some reason this link doesn’t allow you access and I’ll talk to those in charge and get you in!)



Purity Matters…. and so do Toxins

Earlier this week I made a comment in a gardening post, and I wanted to expand on that a little more. The comment made was in regards to the purity of our gardening bounty and how important it is to know both your source and how your food (ie: the plants or animals) is cared for from seed (or birth) to the farm table.

As you might have guessed by now, I am an advocate of following this principle in all aspects of life.

Knowing your source……whether that be your: Continue reading “Purity Matters…. and so do Toxins”

WOOF(er) Pups

I think gardeners must suffer a worse case of spring fever than the average Joe, and North Texas weather only plays with our emotions making the situation even worse. We have beautiful days followed by cold snaps frequently with little or no warning. It’s a dance of self control and roulette with the Farmer’s Almanac officiating.

We have no kids of our own, so the farm and garden are managed by us alone. If you live on a farm, you know that the chore list is never ending. Gardening season kicks that list up a notch or two. This season we are trying something new. Have you heard of WOOFing? Continue reading “WOOF(er) Pups”

Gardener’s Crack

In early winter I start itching to get my paws on the latest edition of The Whole Seed Catalog. It’s crack for the organic gardener. Truly. I’m not sure how many times I thumb thru the catalog highlighting, circling, and dogear-ing pages before I make my final selections. I feel like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. is my ‘go to’ source for seeds simply because I trust them and I respect their ethical stance on heirloom seed preservation. Their seeds aren’t just heirloom, they are also organic. Continue reading “Gardener’s Crack”
