Welcome "Newbies". I am a one generation removed farmer. Meaning, I never have really farmed, but grew up on the tales. I so enjoy listening to anything you want to share.

Welcome Eggabirdis. Is it safe to assume you have a chicken or poultry farm?

When we lived in Portland we had chickens and a huge Vegetable Garden. You can embrace your farming gene no matter where you live.

Welcome Linda,
I too am a token non-farmer unless someone counts two sheep. I am the first non-farmer in generations of farmers on both sides of my family. My mom's dad raised horses for the calvalry in North Dakota, and my dad's family was blown out of Kansas during the dust bowl.

One pound to be banished by Sunday. Thanks for the friendly challenge.

What do you say? Shall we revive the old chat topic of "Let's sit a spell and talk"
or should we start a new challenge page??

HI everyone and Happy Sunday to you all! I fall into the category "other" too and am very happy to be here! You see I have been surrounded by people who farm all my life! I have fond memories of my grandma's farm! I belong to a few teams that have all kinds of confusing things to perform to belong to the team! I was looking for one simply that may have a 1 week challenge for a pound or two or perhaps to just better ourselves! Skip the competition, I am competing with myself to lose one or two! I love people and love to read about all the sweet things they are doing with their crops! My mom and I use to walk (salt shaker in hand) two miles to go to a neighbors garden to sit on a log and munch away on tomatoes, cukes, carrots and even rubbing raw potatoes on our shirts salting and staying in heaven for a while! This group rekindles that for me a bit! That said, ANYBODY HERE WANT TO LOSE 1 POUND TOGETHER BY SAY NEXT SUNDAY?

LOV2u

Rimajo,

Don't worry, I am another also. I grew up on a Midwestern farm and now have lived in Nashville or one of its suburbs for the last 6 years.

I enjoy the country life, but couldn't handle that type of work. I need definative hours and something indoors. I work as a registered nurse, not always the definative hours, but still good hard honest work.

Welcome to the Old Fat Farmers and Others site. Us Others can help remind the farmers why they stay in the business.

Blessings,

Not to worry Skeeter.. I was actually thinking you must be talking about some sorta tractor or other type of farming equipment that I hadn't ever heard of, yet.

What a nice introduction you gave, we know more about you now. Fruit trees and gardening ARE VERY hard work too. We struggle every year to keep ahead of the bugs, air born diseases and weeds and grass, in our garden same as on the farm. You mentioned the hard work on the farm, I know , I can't hardly get my GLEBE out in the field everyday. Skeeter emoticon

Greetings folks: This group was brought to my attention by your kindly leader JustLyle. Thank-you Skeeter, for the invite.

I'm not a farmer, although I do love everything I'm learning about farming since moving to the mid-west. My husband is the one that grew up in this world, helping his Dad manage & harvest several cherry orchards over the years. This is where & how I got my first taste of what farming is really like (lotsa hard, sometimes frustrating work!) & really feel a connection with this lifestyle/path.

I enjoy going to our farmers markets & getting to know our local farmers personally. Most all our veggies are either grown by us, or come from one of the 2 farms we actively support. This year I became a dropsite for one of these farmers - who sell their produce via CSA (community supported agriculture).

Outside of that, I'm mostly a know-nothing, who's trying to learn how to grow more & more of her own, as I also learn more about canning. Guess you could say I'm growing in baby-steps.

Now that I'm among 'experts' I imagine I may get myself a REAL farmers style education from the ones that know it best. Happy to be here, looking forward to getting to know all of you.
