Turning Tables

So, I've been writing here for about 5 years now. I have watched my followers numbers increase. Each time I see that number increase I get a little thrill.. So this evening I looked at my stats and I saw that I have a real international following.

So I would love to hear from you. Where are you from? What are you growing? How do you spend your time? What are you making? What are you reading?

Please share:)

We're from Saskatchewan, Canada. Just moved to an acreage last spring, with the hopes of growing our own high-quality free-range organic food. Love it out here! We've got a big old garden and some goats and chickens...we have a baby on the way, as well. Been too busy planting garden and trees and fixing and tidying up the house for baby to be making or reading much, lately...

Hi there, I'm in South Wales, UK with my son and husband. We are dreaming of a small-holding with lots of hens, goats and sheep plenty of land to grow our own food. Trying to make the most of a small garden with 3 hens and a small greenhouse in the meantime! I home-educate my 4 year old while learning to knit and learning to make my own dressmaking patterns.
I've just found your blog and love it :)

I have a small farm in Ga. near Chattanooga, Tn. I have market gardens and sheep for meat and wool. Also Lamancha and Nubian dairy goats. Plus lots of chickens for meat and eggs.

I enjoy your blog. I noticed on my little blog, there are people from other countries that stop by too. Cool!

I'm originally from Worcestershire, England, but have been living in Upstate New York for 6 years. We grow and preserve lots of our own vegetables, and try to use our farmers market and coop as much as possible for other items. I get my livestock fix helping at a neighbors small farm, she has Shetland sheep, llamas, and free range chickens. My 'barter' is help with mucking out the barn, shearing, fencing etc in return for spinning lessons on my new folding Lendrum spinning wheel. I love reading blogs about people who are doing the things I dream of while at my office job, these include, yours, Jenna Woginrich @ Cold Antler Farm, Jon Katz @ Bedlam Farm, and my 2 friends who have Shetland sheep - Whispering Pines Shetland Sheep, and Inspiration Fibers. I'm reading a few farming related books at the moment 'The Sheep Book for Smallholders' by Tim Tyne who writes for the UK magazine Country Smallholder. Also the newly released 'Greenhorns - the next generation of American Farmers' which has 50 short essays from beginner farmers - there's also a documentary featuring some of the writers. Hope you enjoy the feedback - thanks for setting aside time to share the blog with us. HR
