I never thought I'd ever have a blog, I hadn't really ever thought about it except to think ... "why would anyone do that? and who would read it?"
But in 2010 as I started working on my garden, I started journaling for myself the process... which is very unlike me. But I did it in Word, in private, just for me.
Then, my dear friend Cari who lives WAY too far away (I know... it's my fault... I'm the one who moved) and I decided to raise chickens this year. We didn't plan it together, it just happened that we both were doing it at the same time. I don't think we'd ever even talked to each other about wanting chickens. I know I wanted to get some last year, but the timing just wasn't right. My husband, Joe, was running for public office, our business was in major growth mode, then we decided to sell, then the economy took a nosedive, and the chickens had to wait.
