my dreams... a reality :)

  1. Hi @lexilewis2001. Congratulations on your farm dream coming to reality. I've done gardening and some livestock decades ago, but made it my retirement plan to have my "wee farm" with chickens, lots of vegetable gardens and fruit trees. It's a lot of work, but so worth it. Keep sending updates and we love pictures.

    thank you ! I hope you enjoy your “wee farm” haha!
     
  3. Thanks, I do enjoy it. I call it my "Wee Farm" because it is 6/10 of an acre. I have a small flock of chickens, two semi-dwarf apple trees, one dwarf peach tree and a brown fig tree (of course they never get too big anyway), I have 5 raised garden beds for vegetables and am adding more this year. I used to have a little chihuahua for a farm dog, but she passed away shortly after her 15th birthday. And, I'm vertically challenged as well. So everything here is "wee" even my little cape cod cottage. "Good things come in small packages."

    aw i’m sorry about your dog. your farm sounds so cute though! I love talking to the people on here because everyone is so nice. I have trouble making friends in “real” life and get picked on at school a lot. it’s nice to have kind people to talk to about my passions!
     
  5. I got picked on a lot in school as well. Things were better once I got into sports. I didn't have so much time to hang out with the "cool kids" because I started working before and after school when I was 14. But don't listen to the bullies. I've learned that bullies are mean to you because they are usually jealous of you. Just be yourself and be kind and proud of who you are.

    We picked up our goats last night! Hazel is the light brown and Gus is the darker brown & white. I am so happy to have them here with me and they already follow me around. In love with them!
