Well, this is exciting. We are starting a new adventure – in the hopes that it will grow (literally) into a FARM!
A garden is always a work in progress.
Yes, for those who know me, having a farm is a dream of mine. I love (LOVE) to garden, I love farm animals and I love the hard work it takes to make a garden successful.
So, we’ve created Pig Dog Farms to start things out. I am still gardening in the backyard and I am definitely NOT an expert. I’ve had my fair share of mistakes this year – and in year’s past.
I am so excited to share this new project/idea with you. Please go take a look – and let me know what you think. And, of course, any gardening advice is always welcome.

The beginnings of a garden for 2014.
My first garden in 2009.
I love gardening. I love the feel and smell of fresh dirt, I love having dirty fingers from digging and I love watching things that I planted as seeds flourish into a flower, fruit or vegetable.
What a ride these past few months have been. I swear it feels like they went by in a flash (but when I was stressing and so busy I couldn’t see straight they seemed to drag on forever.) Continue reading
