You Can Be Happy, If You've a Mind To...




Roger Miller, one of the greatest singer/songwriter's of the modern age, sings this great song, "You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd." Such witty lyrics and a powerful message that we can all learn from: You can be happy, if you've a mind to. 

When you work a homestead or farm of any size, there are a lot of things that could get you down. Crop failure, pests and predators, your goat escaping his pen and eating the neighbor's prized rose bushes, or anything else, really. 

Last year, I planted 15 tomato plants and every one of them got some sort of leaf curl and bottom rot. I didn't get a single tomato off of them.

We've raised rabbits for three or so years now. We had years where we didn't see one baby rabbit, and we've had years where we only had one small litter. 

Strawberries and blueberries are a favorite snack, but we have never had enough to harvest more than a handful or two.
