A Summer Day on the Farm

First, my 9 year old son picked dandelion greens randomly when outside playing because he wanted to eat them - I thought that was awesome:  that he knew you could eat them and picked them on his own!

How many kids know what they can eat that grows in nature without human planting, something they do not grow in stores? How many kids actually like to eat those things?

Wow! This is what homesteading would be all about.

Here is the bucket of greens, as he brought them into me, and he is right, they are great when looked like spinach or turnip greens.

Now, I finally got a very nice Sigma 10-20mm F4.6 wide angle lens to do
outdoor and wedding photography.

Might I say, I am VERY happy with this lens, and it will help get the shots
I need at upcoming weddings I have booked, but it also takes
amazing landscape and other creative shots.



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."
