    How to Milk a Cow

    where-poppies-blow-10

    Hey, you guys! I thought that it would be fun to write up a tutorial on how to milk a cow, since we have one and I’ve never gone into detail before! The other day my Granddaddy was gone and I was supervising my cousins milk so I decided to bring along my camera and take pictures. I got the idea to make a tutorial out of it, so I hope you all enjoy (and learn something)!

    If you ever get a cow, now you know where to go. 😉

    Every year they host all our new little seedlings that we’ve planted. We improve our methods each year, and this year all the trays of sprouts are sitting on bread racks under growing lights. I’m not sure whether its the lights or the fish fertilizer (note: organic) they spray, but our sprouts grow awfully quickly.

    Hi y’all! I am finally back from my very long hiatus…in fact, it was more like a hibernation. XD The past couple of months have been really busy. My family and I went through a really hard time, but God sustained us with His grace and we are so thankful for our supportive friends and family. Now, summer has arrived on the farm and I am back!  Read more
