We recently purchased property that adjoins our current farm area, and we have a lot of clean up to do. However, with determination and a vision in mind, we know how beautiful this area can be.
Small Hobby Farm
Well, it has been a long time since I have given an update about the farm and the process of moving our double wide mobile home. So, since I have been getting a lot of emails I decided it was time to give you all an update.

Our small homestead area sits on just two acres, but with a bit of planning we hope to make 2019 a great year. Expanding some of our areas, more clean up of the property and growing a bigger garden is just a few of the goals for this year.
I love decorating my outside spaces as much as I do my indoor spaces. When it comes to gardening, whether it be flowers or vegetables, I enjoy adding a touch of vintage charm.
I often think about how wonderful it would be to garden without the worries of little critters like rabbits nibbling on my lettuce and carrots, hornworms chomping away on tomato leaves, squash bugs devouring my squash, and all the other little pests that find my garden delicious. It doesn’t matter how much I think about how nice it would be to avoid these little creatures because they won’t just go away without a little action on my part. That is where this simple and easy all natural garden pest control spray comes in handy.
Are you looking for a great cut and come again flower for you cut flower gardens? Start with Zinnias. Zinnias are one of the easiest flowers to grow from seed, they grow quickly and bloom for long periods of time. And, as an added bonus the butterflies love them!
One of my favorite sites to see is the beautiful butterflies that gracefully flutter through the air, fluttering from flower to flower in my garden. One of my hopes this year was to create a small haven that would encourage the butterflies to visit our area more often and to plant several variety of herbs that they love to use as host plants.
