This is a blog about a guy who has wanted to be in the country for a long time. I'd much rather smell manure than exhaust fumes. I want to produce as much of my own food as possible. I have a lot to learn and will probably be pretty entertaining in my journey.

Took the plunge...
Alright, I couldn't wait any longer. I've been going to TSC regularly and resisting the urge to get chicks. Thursday, my willpower gave out. I bought 8 chicks. I'm telling you, watching these little peeps is way better than TV. Here are most of them:
Sophie likes them too. They smell like her treats.
Chad's practicing for farm life. I think he likes his new rubber boots more than he admits.
Just a few more days. We take possession on Wednesday. I'm getting very anxious. I made invitations for our housewarming today. Here's the picture I used which is from the 1875 census of our county. There was a great sketch of our farm in it.
