I love photography and am always finding fun things to photograph here on the farm. Last December I went through my photos and put together a special 2011 On the Farm calendar featuring various critters here on the farm, some images from the garden, and even some farm landscapes. The purpose of the calendar was not only for our own home use, but it also made wonderful gifts for the holidays, and we also hoped that sales of the calendar would bring in a little cash that we could put towards caring for the farm critters.


I thought I would offer up a free calendar to one lucky Grit blog reader! If you would like to enter the drawing for an On the Farm calendar, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what you most look forward to in the coming year. I'll randomly select one name from all comments on Friday, January 21st at 10am Central. The one lucky reader selected will be given their choice of a small, or standard sized, 2011 On the Farm calendar.

And well, if you don't win the drawing on Sunday, it's not too late to order up your own copy of On the Farm!


As always, you are invited to read more about our life on the farm.

Anna, It looks to be a great calendar from the cover. From following your blogs I suspect that the inside pictures are just as good as the one on the cover. I am amazed at some of the close up shots you do. My old 4.0 Megapixel easyshare Kodak camera and I have traveled a lot of roads together and it still works great. I even forgot it once in Nicaraga and it found it's way home. Can you imagine? I know that who ever wins the calendar will surely enjoy it for the entire year. Have a great contest day.

What a wonderful calendar!! I'm looking forward to finally obtaining a piece of rural property so all the things I've been practicing (in town) can be put into action. :)

My wishes for the coming year would be Peace. The Military to all come home and be with there families. The war to be over. So many young men and women have lost the lives way to soon. To be able to find a new job and make a new start. I became disabled in August of 2008 and have not been able to find a job. Those would be to wishes for the coming year. Thank You

I'm looking forward to getting out of debt. It's a process I started back in 2007 and I"m almost there!!! It's been difficult, but so worth it ;) :) I'm also looking forward to figuring out how to turn my passions into something that can earn money for my family :) :) Thanks for this giveaway and letting me participate ;) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather ;)
