We are always happy for moisture, but along with it, comes ruts.

Vile Ruts!

While country life may seem peaceful and serene, there is a lot of work involved.   We are responsible for everything: maintenance, water, sewer, and even roadwork.


So it’s an exciting day when we are finally fed up with the potholes and ruts and ready to spend some money on gravel.


I’m always looking for a smallish bit for my pathways in the yard also…..


It’s Gold Baby!  Pure Gold!


Now doesn’t that look nice?

    Who is that beautiful black dog? One thing I love about your blog is that your life is so completely opposite of my own. I love learning about what farming is like in what I am assuming in the Midwest U.S. So different from my own life.

      That is my dog Sara. She loves me so much! Lol! We farm in the central plains. I so appreciate your open mind Kim. What I want to show people, is that although we are maybe bigger farmers than some- We are still a family -We love our farm – We love our land with a passion – We choose to be here – We try so hard to to do the very best for the environment, after all, we live here! Please keep reading Kim, and I do hope you enjoy as you learn. 😀

    It’s all about perspective, isn’t it? Most people don’t think of gravel as much of a blessing, but those who live in the country certainly do!

    Yes! Looks fantastic. Always so exciting to get new gravel. I hope to put some in this fall again, although I lack your beautiful toys and will have to do a lot of manual labor. Well, it will take a while 🙂

      Ahhhh, the right equipment sure does make it easier…..but maybe the manual labor is why you look so pretty riding your horse! 😉

        😉 I chalk that up to long distance running, but thank you!
        My next gravel project is more of a backbreaking, wrinkle making type of ordeal 🙂

        Oh bummer! If I was close, I would come help you.

        Haha, love it! (The vision of you driving down the highway with a helpful tractor. For 3 days!)
