On the farm: 5 more fat baby rabbits, and a craigslist trade: one of our 13 week old does for this handsome, albino male -for introducing new genes into our rabbit family. He has been named "Big Al" (albino). Supposedly, he will throw some awesome colors -just like his dad. Lance will be building him a proper hutch this weekend.
Dispatching (and cooking!) our first round of rabbit this weekend! Can you say Wabbit Satay?

I have a love/hate relationship with our Food Saver. I love it for the "fresh" garden vegetables it provides in the middle of winter, but dislike (hate really is such a strong word) it for consuming plastic.

One of the best things about moving our family to the farm is the ripple it creates in our family circle -sharing love and awareness, the why and how of where our food comes from. It makes my heart so happy. These kiddos are what its all about!

Yes, we were spoiled indeed.

A New Year, full of hope and dreams. Embracing the joy of fresh beginnings, and holding on tight.
To bring the New Year in properly you must rid yourself of the past years "baggage". And that is just what we did New Years Eve, we torched the burn pile! Topped with our recently discarded Christmas tree, we burnt the ever accumulating 2011 pile, the one that took up residence in our soon-to-be home for pigs...yes, Pigs! Now with the pen clear, we are one step closer to our goal: "Pigs: Spring 2012".
Another milestone was reached this past weekend. A milestone that helped kick the New Year off to a great start: major demolition/remodel work on my parents home has begun! Really and truly. I can see progress, and it comes at a time when I am yearning for such. It's amazing how a touch of progress can make one feel so very determined, and grateful too.
2012, We welcome you with Full Hearts and Determined Minds.
