A box of observations about sustainable hobby farming, microbiology, recipes, and odd projects

I planted some seed corn yesterday as on a whim I bought just one lone corn plant at the nursery last week. Hmm, pollination, anyone? Right. So, a friend gave me some seed corn - quite a lot! I only planted about 6 kernels. Knee high by the Fourth of July? Well, not quite this year. I am also waiting for some bush beans planted in situ to peek their heads up and join the party!
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
