Technically, I'm not a farm girl. I don't live on acres and acres of land. I don't own a barn or a cow to put in the barn. But...my last name does qualify me to call myself a Farmer. Yee Haw!
This whole comeback of urban farming that you've been seeing all over Facebook, Pinterest, blogs, etc...has been the greatest thing for this farm girl. Urban farming, chicken raising, organic gardening...these are all subjects of my current reading selections. I have books scattered all over the living room, kitchen counters, nightstand...pretty much anywhere I may sit down for 5 minutes. Shoot, I even have an orcharding magazine on my front porch.
Though I'm very new to everything pertaining to the urban farm, I'm dreaming of it. We have 6 chickens, 2 ducklings, 6 fruit trees, 8 blueberry bushes and far too many slugs. I've found I can grow green beans but not zucchini. Who can't grow zucchini you ask? This farm girl can't. Seriously, I've tried for 3 years now and got nothing. Some day.
Here are some photos taken around the "farm" this week. Enjoy!
And there ya have it. Enjoy your weekend!
