Plays Farmer
A bit about me:
Getting my hands dirty is not an option. It is what drives me in life. Between the food & herb garden, chickens & beehive plus my sporatic projects either in the home or the workshop, I raise our 3 children {between the ages of 5 & 12}. 'mI known as The Unusual Farm Chick online where I blog with the ocassional homesteading and project video. I could not imagine life any other way then playing farmer as I do while raising my children. It is truly what makes life beautiful.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Pork tacos { I grew up in Florida where Mexican food was my staple}
