Each year we grow what some would consider to be a large garden.  At this time of year its fun looking a seed catalogs and planning for Spring.

We are anxious for spring and to start the garden.   I ordered seed but it is so rainy and muddy it will be a while before we can plant.




Anna Claire received a terrarium kit from Karen for Christmas.    She and Ethan have enjoyed watching the seed sprout and the roots grow.


While not necessarily part of the garden, our freezers also hold our meat.   the lamb we eat is of course our own.   Pork, we purchase hogs from local FFA students that raised them as a project.   We recently stocked the freezer with beef.   It was raised by our neighbor and the meat is wonderful.  We also got the bones for making stock.   Nothing can beat the flavor of locally farm raised meat.
