About me

Location Annapolis, Maryland, United States
Introduction I was a farm girl on the prairie of North Dakota most of my life. The early years. I grew up learning how to cook and sew and craft; gardening and farming; raise cows, chickens and pigs. We butchered our own animals. We ate the foods that grew in our garden. We did a lot of canning and preserving. At the age of 16 we moved from our small farm in the middle of ND to a city in the middle of Arizona! At the time I felt like I was living the high life. I was now a city girl! And I loved it. I still do love living in a town but I'm starting to rediscover my farm girl roots. The roots I'm getting back in touch with are canning and preserving. Eating local, fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables out of someones garden. Making things from scratch rather than running to the store and buying it. This is my blog about my journeys. My husband and I lovingly call our journey "the adventures of John and Joni!" I hope you enjoy.
