About me

Industry Agriculture
Occupation small business owner
Location WA., United States
Introduction A native of Washington State, I moved from Seattle to Lummi Island in 1999. There I established a small homestead on 3 acres where I learned most of what I know about farm poultry, goats, making goats milk soap and the pleasures of living in a small community. After 8 years I sold my little farm and moved to Lopez Island to help my guy whip his house into shape for selling. We moved with our two teen girls to another more accessible island to be closer to the colleges they would need in the next few years. I and THE MAN are currently living on 4 acres. The chicken coop has been built and the garden established. THE MAN and builder of all things on "The List" is currently working on my never ending and always growing requests. Our goal is to become more self sufficient and have fun doing it. Oh ya and get our daughters raised and into college. A feat in itself. So if you are into some humorous farm antics, recipes, organic gardening, with the occasional tip for solving a problem or two read on. Make comments. I love learning from my readers. Sista
