Well, life at the Powers house has been a whirlwind lately! In the past month Buddy and I got married, went to Jamaica, and started farming full-time. It has been quite a transition for me, to say the least, but I’m loving being a “farmer’s wife”. I’m learning A LOT about things I never thought I would…like how to “process” (butcher) a chicken, how to move cows, and next week I’m going to learn how to make strawberry preserve (thanks to my lovely friend Sheri!). My goal is to be a true domestic diva by the end of my first year of marriage! I’ve already made some killer dinners- just ask Bud!! But, if you had told me two years ago that I would be living on a farm and married to a farmer, I would have said you were on drugs…I mean seriously, what couple in their twenties graduates college, gets married, and starts a farm??!! JILL and BUDDY POWERS DO!!!
I already feel like I could write a book of stories from my new life on the farm and I’ve only been married for one month!! But instead, I’ll just blog as I go so I can keep everyone updated on what I’m learning, how I’m adjusting to “the simpler life”, and the pictures I take along the way.
So without further ado, here is my new blog series that I will lovingly call “Farmtography”… Photography on the farm!
Farm Lesson #1: It is imperative to have a pair of rubber boots on the farm! I CAN NOT imagine walking through a field with cow poop, chicken poop, and mud without them! Thank the Lord for Tractor Supply and their durable boots! (P.S.- For all you who plan on coming to the farm to visit, rain boots work just fine!)
And here’s the newest addition to our family, Samson Powers! His job is to guard the chickens on pasture, (still a work in progress!) but isn’t he just SOOO cute??!!The HONEYMOOOOON!! We went to Jamaica and it was the greatest week EVER!!
