Everyone has a Blog

When I realize that everyone out there doing the farming, homesteading, livestock life also has a blog, I think I must be very behind with the times and missing out on the following of 'readers that can come with an active, funny and interesting blog.
I already have a website, Lucas Farm, that gets a great deal of traffic, but it does not really tell our story, and I so enjoy visiting the other homesteading blogs, I think I need to give this a try. Besides, I lends a different spin on homesteading - I am a vegetarian, and that can set our experience apart in a real but humorous way.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
