Milking Mama

Milking Mama

Mama Mello is a pain in the ass on the milking stand. I don't mean a little persnickety, or tough to get up on the stand, I mean kicking, screaming, falling down on purpose, ridiculousness. If my Homesteading Dreams weren't so tightly wrapped up in her I might give up entirely... But damn, her milk is good! Let me back…

Usually I refuse to incorporate any kind of Holiday Cheer into my daily life until the weekend after Thanksgiving (a lady can only take so much red and green, carols and decorations, ya know?) but I've made an exception for this project because, well, I was so inspired by it, the pattern is free (!!!), it's incredibly cute, and it…

Red Delicious Apples

Red Delicious Apples

There's a gorgeous old apple tree on the property that is incredibly prolific and massive in size.  It maintains its green leaves and produces good sized apples much later in the season than the other trees and is home to the gorgeous Nuthatch bird I asked for your help identifying earlier this year. And yet, we had no idea what variety of…
