Episode 17 – Rosie Hill Conversation

Are “farm birth stories” and thing?  I don’t mean, like, giving birth on a farm (though those would certainly be rad.  I can’t wait until Suzie the Goat gives birth here on the farm, but I digress).  I mean stories about the journey people took to decide to make that jump and move out to a farm.

If it’s not a thing currently, it is now.  We talk this week with Rosie Hill, and she tells us the story about her family leaving D.C. behind and buying a farm in the Shenandoah Valley.

You can follow Rosie’s adventures at her blog, A Blog For My Mom.

Fisher cats attack humans!  It’s true!

People, these things HUNT PORCUPINE.  Think about THAT.

Ghost Fawn Homestead post on how to put up 140 lbs. of apples without losing your mind is here.

I can’t take a picture of the finished kitchen wall right now, because I’m busy processing the tomatoes (more on that later), and the kitchen is a WRECK.  Here’s my parents hard at work halfway through:
