Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Never underestimate the power of a plant. I saw it several times in Colorado -- not the most garden friendly place --- or at least it had a very short season compared to Michigan and that was if the hail didn't get to things before the frost did! This is a very nice picture. I'm assuming "Pint" is the wee grandson. What a cutie. The how-to's of gardening is a wonderful gift to give our children --- something they can carry with them forever.


Hurray! I need to start some seeds in Jiffy pots; I've got the seeds and pots, I just get nervous about the timing. Two years ago I ended up with tall, spindly seedlings that needed to go out weeks before the temperatures cooperated; last year was a bit better.

And kudos for being such a good "mom." (I MEAN that!) I need lessons in patience to enlist my little guy's help in all those tasks around the "farm" and home while creating bonds of love and a good work ethic.
