Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #131

DSCN3364Welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop!  So happy you have stopped by to read a bit and share a bit.

I don’t know about you but living this farmgirl lifestyle is a constant stream of learning!  Whether you are discovering a great new paint for refurnishing furniture like Deb over at Dandelion House, cooking up something new and yummy like Dolly, exploring and learning about your community like Heidi, learning a new way to garden or something new to grow, or a new craft, or how to do something yourself that never occurred to you before or…. well you get the idea.  Us farmgirls are always learning and trying something new.  This weekend I head off to beekeeping school. Did I ever have that in my plans a couple years ago?  NOPE!  But it seems perfectly in sync now with my ever evolving lifestyle.

That is why I love our blog hop on Fridays!  You share so many things with us that enrich my life or that gives me confidence to try something new.

Last week I read with such great interest City Boy’s blog on finding that his Honey Bee Queen had died and what he did when that occurred.  Since I have bees on the brain right now that caught my eye, but also educated me on something that may occur in my future with our bees and was just a darn good read!

So what are you learning, trying, experiencing this week?  Grab a seat and share some of your farmgirl (farmboy) happenings!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FARMGIRL SISTERHOOD to join the FARMGIRL/BOY FRIDAY BLOG HOP.  BUT with all the cool stuff ya’ll do I would highly recommend it!  Earning badges for doing stuff that we are doing!  It’s like scouts for grownups.  How fun is that???  I just love being a part of the Farmgirl Sisterhood.  Finding MJs Farm  is helping me discover and embrace all the things I love!  

Friday Blog Hop

 

So if you love to play in the dirt, in the kitchen, in your craft room, with your animals or where ever you do your farmgirl thing come on and join the fun!

So, who are your hostesses? Be sure to visit them and see what they are up to.  Say “hello” while you are there!”

Unleashing Can Be Dangerous(ly fun)!

Unleashing your inner farmgirl can be dangerous.  She will want to do and try so many things and it will be impossible to contain her. 🙂

I have taken the week off from my “day job” in corporate and it really allows my farmgirl to dream, plot and plan.  Watch out!

Things I have experienced today:

  • Started worm compost tea
  • Ordered an Earthway Seeder
  • Researched Wheel Hoes (any suggestions?)
  • Watered my seedlings for my fall garden
  • Read and read on green shield bugs
  • Baked (usually hubby’s gig but my inner Farmgirl loves it) —cookies and banana bread
  • Ordered beekeeping books and chicken books and gardening year around books
  • Watched videos on high tunnels (oh boy!)
  • Read a lot of blogs that are of interest…chickens and bees and veggies oh my!
  • Ordered some shea butter so I can add lip balm to my DIY products
  • Started a notebook/journal each on bees and chickens—recording planning and dreaming is oh so important!
  • Ate lunch on my deck which was just peaceful and awesome

And most importantly dreamed and dreamed and dreamed.  More fun to come today-working the garden later today, getting on my tractor, feeling more sunshine and getting dirty. 🙂  Hubby said to me “I love it when you are like this…” My response, “me too.”
