Ruby Lane Farm and Garden is now functioning. We have chickens and goats and dogs and a cat and even a rabbit! Farming is a labor of love, and being a Farmgirl is a Condition of the Heart.
The goal is simple: Raise my own food from garden to bacon; grow enough to share with others and run a cottage industry to fund Ruby Lane. This has long been a dream of mine.

Break from Crafting
Even crafting fun has to come to a (temporary) end sometimes...so I can do other things like BUILD! (My other favorite activity.) Today I cut apart the privacy fence that separates the back yard from the front, and built a little double gate out of two crib ends. I don't have any hinges, and will have to wait til I get some money to buy some; I will also buy some kind of paint to help weather proof it.
Even though it's not done, I like it!
This is what it looked like before.
That's our Border Collie, Mary Jane. She's a real scaredy cat. She's not scared of Timmy at all though. We got her from the pound nearly a year ago.
And this is me. I get pretty hot and sweaty and covered in sawdust when I build. It's not my favorite condition, but it sure gets things done!
