Farm Cleaning and Tidying Considerations & Tips

[img] For those who have never lived on a farm before, their image of farm life is not truly representative. People tend to imagine the kind of well-manicured “show” farms that are run by a number of people and staff; the kind that feature charming farm shops and offer hay rides through the summer.

Farm Life: Surviving A Long, Dry Summer

Water Is Important on the Farm Given that the year has only just begun, it may seem odd to be contemplating the water needs of a farm during the summer months. With winter still in full flow for at least another six weeks and spring to follow it, it may seem a little rash to […]

Ask in Prayer, Believing, and You Shall Receive

Matthew 21:22 tells us to Ask In Prayer. “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Wednesday, I saw prayer work.

Rainy Flu Days & WIPs ~ Friday at the Farm

I Hate Being Sick with the flu. I know it’s not Friday. It’s Saturday. This is what happens when you make New Years Resolutions and then get the flu. (Why do I keep wanting to put an e on the end of that word?!) Actually, I caught this flu the night before New Years Eve. […]

The Ladybug Picnic at Friday on the Farm

One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six … For the past couple of weeks (and honestly every year around this time) we’ve been dealing with a ladybug infestation – in our master bathroom.

Happy Halloween ~ Friday at the Farm

All Hallow’s Eve It’s Halloween here on the farm, but you wouldn’t know it. To be honest, it’s pretty quiet here on Halloween. The homes out here are so far apart, kids don’t knock doors out here.

Percy the Peacock at Friday on the Farm

Peacock on the Run The other day, Hubby decided to let Percy the Peacock out of his pen. Now, Percy has been let out a few times before, but we had a little trouble rounding him back up to go into the pen at night. This time, however, when Hubby went out to feed, he […]
