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.

Felting for Orphans
Some days I feel like the Little Red Hen! I bought some Angora goats for the fiber (of course), learned to shear them (thank you Denise!), figured out how to wash the fleece, experimented with the dyeing process, and began felting, a skill new to me.
Here's what I've done so far... it's not much. :D
The general idea is that I am going to try and sell these (or rather, trade them for a $10 tax deductible donation to Elias' adoption fund). What do you think? Would YOU buy one? I'm not asking you to, just to say whether you would. :D
When you see the picture of the little guy would it make you more likely to donate? Look:
How can you resist such darlingness?!
:D I'm off to school. (College for grown ups is exhausting!)
