Some of the many adventures on the farm. 

Just my life.

Excuse me!!! I’m nesting here!!! 

Of all places for this duck to decide to nest. In the center of my cows hay bale. Try explaining to a cow that it needs to be careful when eating it’s hay! Ha! 

It is priceless though watching the cows try and figure out what’s hissing at them inside their hay bale. (As muscovy ducks don’t quack they make hissing type noises) just a little tid bit for those that haven’t been around these kinda ducks. 

I have a couple ducks nesting under my grainery. Which wasn’t what I had hoped for but had to cave due to the fact my dog decided to become an egg eater this year. So it’s one place she cannot get to.  

Another duck choose under my porch in the garage. Not safest place to pick. So I had to make up a nest type box. To help protect her and her eggs from kids and dogs.  Thankfully she s now use to me walking through to milk goats. As my milk stand is right by the porch. 


 Anxiously awaiting the arrival of black pigs babies. She is due the 20th of this month. So this Saturday. She could go sooner or later. 

Just a waiting game. I’m hoping she has them on a warm day. The last few days have been cold and windy. Lows in mid 30’s highs just hitting high 40’s low 50’s. 

Any guesses as to how many piglets she’ll have. The most she s had is 9 i believe. The least was 3(that was her first farrowing)  

Friend or Foe? Yesterday this little cat showed up. First appearance was in my cow barn. Scared me as I was not expecting it. I tried to coax it to me. But it’s terrified of people. 

I of course laid out some extra cat food for the little thing. Figured if it’s gonna be here it needs to eat. And be friendly so I know it won’t cause harm to my other cats. Or my ducks. 

Today the cat snuck up under the car in the garage behind where I milk. I again tried to get it to come me. But nope. It however did not run right away. It walked over and climbed on a box and began falling asleep. I snuck over and gently petted it’s head. 

Not sure who jumped more. The cat or myself. Cuz as soon as I touched her(or him) not sure gender. She jumped up in the air and ran away. Definitely got my heart going that’s for sure.  

So the saga continues. Will the cat be a friend or a foe?  Will it be a girl and end up having a litter of kittens?(hope not!!) 

J learning to mow. He’s almost 6 and a half. And was thrilled to finally get the chance to mow. A true country boy. I never enjoyed mowing so to see him loving it so is amusing.  Not gonna lie it’s scary for me. Cuz I see all that can go wrong. Of course. But he’s never alone we are nearby at all times. 

After he mowed a few times. He determined he was ready to drive the cars now. Ha! Slow down there little man. You got a bit to go before you can just hop in and drive one! 

Today I also went in and volunteered at my son’s class. Last chance I had before school is done for this year. It was Beach day. Not the greatest weather for that. But kids still had fun. A lot of the kids want to come to our house to play with the animals. 

Which once school is done I have no problem with that. Give J something to do. Aside from getting into trouble. 

Also lost power this morning. For 3 hours. Of all mornings also. I needed to shower before heading to the school. 

But anyways. I must get a certain little boy off to bed. School tomorrow. 

Soooo….to..be..continued..

Alright first off I do all my writing via my phone. So please don't judge me to harshly on the typos. I try to catch them but will most definitely miss a few. Next I'm not great at writing the about me sections of these things. You'll find out more about me by reading my posts vs me trying to squish something into the about me section. But here's a little tid bit. My name is Misty. I am 31 year old country gal. I'm a wife and mom. My son will be known as J in my blog posts. And hubby well will be hubby. Easy enough. I am a stay at home mom. Where not only do I tend to my son. But I run our small scale farm. Which includes cows, ducks, pigs, dairy goats, a pony, a dog and a cat. And coming soon chickens. We got rid of our last set of chickens over the winter. To make room for some young hens. We also have 2 large gardens and 2 smaller ones. I raise and grow about 90 percent of the food we eat. Lots of canning in the fall. I also enjoy hunting and fishing. So be on the look out for those stories in the blog. I created my blog to have a place to write. To share my thoughts/ramblings. Share our adventures. Good or bad. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
