The Art of Substitution

Blog: Millican Pecan Company   -   Thursday August 30, 2012   -   By Kristen

Right Where I Want To Be

Blog: Millican Pecan Company   -   Sunday August 19, 2012   -   By Kristen

Most of the time you will read about a pecan orchard and you can tell that the minds that formulated the words came from a man. Of course, I love to listen to my husband talk about life in the pecan orchards because his eyes light up and his voice reflects...

Pasture Maintenance

Blog: Texas Herb Company& Crafty Threads   -   Thursday May 17, 2012   -   By Petra

A beautiful morning to really enjoy pasture clean up. I am amazed how well the camelid manure turns this dry and stoney land into great fertile soil. The ranch is full of beautiful wild flowers and I am sure it is because of the great rain that we had the...

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } The tide has turned. The seasonal tide. The lettuces that have been taking 7 to 8 weeks to market will now take 10 plus. Funny it has taken so many years to accept that fact. That after the October full moon, there is a...

Country Girl, City Girl

Blog: Mott Family Farm   -   Thursday June 24, 2010   -   By Shelley

When I was little, I called myself a "country girl." No matter that I lived in a suburb of San Fransisco, no matter that we had neighbors 10 feet from our exterior walls, no matter that our house took up pretty much the whole city lot of 50'x150'. I...

Only In The Country

Blog: Breeze Hill Farm   -   Wednesday June 24, 2009   -   By MaLinda

Things I hadn't considered...

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Friday January 09, 2009   -   By Candace

I collect trivia... odd bits of information that will never help me win Jeopardy or any kind of game show.  Unfortunately, with all the bits and pieces, I have to admit the only thing I really knew a lot about was raising kids and now somebody has gone...

Off and Running

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Monday November 10, 2008   -   By Candace

So, we bought a little farm - 3.5 acres that had been parceled off of a "real" farm - and set out to try our luck at being county folk.  It has been a wild and crazy ride so far. The house itself, was in terrible shape.  We joked...
