Keeping busy on a cold wintry day

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday February 13, 2014   -   By Terry

Cabin fever?  Not me!  I am ready for spring, but there's lots to do indoors.  I had taken a bunch of neat pics of the snow all around the farm, but somehow they got lost in between the camera and the computer--I'm sure you know the feeling ...

Life in the Country

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Monday February 03, 2014   -   By Terry

Life in the country is somewhat different than life in the city, or even in the suburbs.  If you live in the country you have to get used to seeing, uh, well, dead things. Theres'a perpetual spring really near the farm, called "Baker's Spout" ....

Living lightly

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday January 23, 2014   -   By Terry

Did you know that if everyone unplugged their clothes dryers ALL the nuclear plants could shut down?  Interesting........ In the winter I hang laundry on the stairway railing, in the summer on the porch railing.  Haven't used the dryer in.....6...

Brrrrr! Cold Chicken Toes

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Wednesday January 08, 2014   -   By Terry

That's the only suitable title I could come up with for this post.  Sunday was fairly warm for January--in the upper 40's actually--then the wind blew and blew and the bottom fell out of the thermometer.  Monday and Tuesday night were both 8 degrees...

A little more protein than I bargained for

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday October 17, 2013   -   By Terry

Yesterday morning, instead of the usual yogurt, fruit, and granola, I opted for a fresh pear that I picked from a friend of a friend of a friend....well, somebody's tree, and a piece of Friendship Bread with cream cheese on top--a little indulgence to break...

Little Miss Muffett

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday October 10, 2013   -   By Terry

I know why the spider frightened Miss Muffett away....it was probably a Black Widow. Today was one of those "piddling" days where there are some things on the to-do list but nothing really pressing (finally!)  I had gone to the big high tunnel...

Out of the Box

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Friday March 15, 2013   -   By Terry

Everything on a farm doesn't have to do with dirt under the fingernails.  Sometimes it's grease under the fingernails.  The Subaru Veggie Wagon has been letting me know for the past few months that something was going on with the front end.  So,...

Diary of a diet

Blog: Will Heal Farm   -   Wednesday March 06, 2013   -   By farmernudd

I created this blog to offer insight into healthy eating.  Thinking of food as medicine and not just a meal.  I love to eat and when food taste good I feel more satisfied.  I have learned over the years that too much salt and sugar ruins the...

Blog: For Dragonflies And Me   -   Wednesday September 05, 2012   -   By Neil & Jean

Our homes should be a blessing to our family... and whether we like it or not, we moms/wives/ladies can make it or break it!  We need to strive to create an environment that is welcoming, peaceful and cozy for all who...

Late winter on the farm

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Wednesday February 29, 2012   -   By Terry

Although mud is still the most popular flooring in the great outdoors, spring is creeping through the cracks.  A couple of freezer burned hyacinths stand amidst the bones and skeletons of the front perennial garden, and the spring peepers have been...

Fall is in the air

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Friday September 16, 2011   -   By Terry

Fall is my favorite time of year–always has been. I love the colors of the trees, the cooler weather…..and putting on a jacket after hanging it in the closet last season. You know where I’m going–I put on a jacket this morning to pick peppers and tomatoes...

Do you remember?

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Friday September 09, 2011   -   By Terry

Do you remember where you were when JFK was shot? I was in Mrs. Watson's 2nd grade class, probably spinning my wooden chair around on one leg, when the announcement came over the loudspeaker. Do you remember where you were when the terrorists struck on...

How was your day?

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Tuesday June 28, 2011   -   By Terry

Yesterday my son called and the first words out of his mouth were a question.  I must have sounded kind of short with him because he said "You sound like I interrupted something".  I apologized and after we hung up I realized that this time...

Keeping an eye (and bucket, and board, and stick) ...

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday January 06, 2011   -   By Terry

Here we are, "knee deep" into winter.  December around here was as cold as I remember it being for such an extended spell.  At least the temperature has gotten into the double digits now, although still quite cold.  Back in the...

Winter Projects Underway

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday December 02, 2010   -   By Terry

The summer season is way too busy to work on house-building projects, so each winter there's a list of things to do during the funky weather.  One of the projects is flooring.  A friend of a friend had oak tongue and groove flooring left over...

Summer Showers

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Thursday July 29, 2010   -   By Terry

It's been exceptionally hot and dry here this summer.  I've been able to irrigate most all the gardens except for the corn, sweet potatoes and assorted winter squash and melons, but even with regular irrigation, it "ain't like Mother Nature" did...

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Sunday May 09, 2010   -   By Terry

Happy Mother's Day!  I went to visit my mom and dad, sisters, brother in laws, nephews, etc., today and we had a wonderful picnic on an absolutely gorgeous spring day.  There is a bumper crop of bibb lettuce at the farm this year, so I picked a...

Somewhere over the rainbows....

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Sunday April 25, 2010   -   By Terry

 Yes, I said over the "rainbows".  Saturday was a very unsettled day around here as far as the weather was concerned.  The weather folks were predicting strong storms, lots of rain, thunder, lightning, hail....so we were all "on...
