… then we applied 3 tons of lime.  Next was 500 lbs. fertilizer, and then 150 lbs. seed, and now we are hopefully finished reconditioning our pasture!

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
