After dragging my tush for three weeks, I am finally on the mend and glorying in the autumn weather we are having around here. 

I've also been blog-hopping, and it's time to talk about some of the wonderful blogs I try to read regularly.... I hope to do this more often, because some are truly inspiring.  It never ceases to amaze me at the creative and interesting people out there who take the time to sit down and write about the things that they love!

Some I feature in my side-bar... and some, I'll tell you about today.

First, FarmGirl at Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in the Good Land.  She is amusing as well as a good blogger... and I love to read her.  She also linked me up with a couple more good blogs... and if you take a look, we are all posting about the D. Landreth Seed Company, oldest seed company in America, which is in receivership right now.  I hope, no, we all hope to see this old company stay alive... Jere Gettle, are you reading us????

Through her, I found a new blog, Kristen at Rusty Moon Homestead, who blogs about gardening.  For a new blogger, she looks like she'll be a keeper!

And also, I found Robin at The Gardener of Eden , who has a super gardening blog with great pictures.

For bees, Susan and Roger at Squash Blossom Farm write not only about bees but CSA gardening.. they are serious about it, and also, many of you read, I'm sure, Jayme Goffin at Tales from the Coop Keeper, and I am sure have laughed along with her at her informative bee-keeping videos she posts on her site, thanks to help from able cameraman (and son) Aaron.

Janis, at Animal Instinct , has not only the most beautiful herd of cattle you have ever seen, but they made it through losing not one but two barns last winter, in horrible conditions, and still look like they have every hair in place.  She takes truly remarkable pictures, and I really admire her stick-to-it-iveness.

Patrice, ("Follow Patrice, she has cookies") at Everyday Ruralty not only writes a good story about her place, but interviews other "Farm Chicks" on her blog regularly, so you can get to know them. 

What can I say about one of my favorites, Michaele at Sprout 'n' Wings Farm , I bought great skin butter from her for Christmas presents, and she has a really good blog with an especially good entry today for Michaelmas. 

If you want to learn about rare breeds, take a look at The Farmer at Hidden Meadow Farm for some awesome Highland Cattle.

I haven't even mentioned the horse blogs I follow or the traveling blogs... in England, Wales, and Scotland, or the decorating blogs... I'll talk about them in another post. 

Don't I have lovely ears?


  1. The llama looks like he has gotten a little static electricity going on there. Glad you are feeling better! The chickens have missed you I am sure.

  2. hahaha, funny ears

    Glad you are feeling better.

  3. Thank you for mentioning me, Mary Ann - I love your blog and I'm so glad you found me so I could find you! :)


I love comments!
