The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

Spring on Coal Creek Farm


Salt the Barn Cat had kitties.  She had two white and two black, like little piano keys.  I keep asking them to sing, “Ebony and Ivory”, but they don’t get it.  So, I sing it to them.


Salt helped me plant the day before she gave birth.  She was incredibly helpful and not at all needy.



I’ve planted beets, onion sets, spinach, lettuce, carrots, radish and broccoli.  Oh, how I hope they grow quickly.  I’m a month behind because of the late April snow falls.  I’m taking produce to a farmer’s market this year and I’m a little nervous that I’m going to fail.  The first market is next week.  So far, I have two crops and pork to take.  It’s a small offering, but that’s all I have.  I am learning a lot this year, hopefully I can stumble through and do much better next year.


I can’t write a post without talking about my hair.  I went in for a trim and came out looking like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music.  I was a bit shocked and compensated for it by applying and reapplying eye make-up.  Baseball caps are my favorite accessory right now.

It’s spring on Coal Creek Farm.  We have so much to do and so little time to do it.

What are you growing this year?
