THE SIMPLE LIFE ON OUR OZARKS QUAIL FARM

After I retired I wanted to stay busy on our farm. My almost 30 year career was in the hunting & fishing industry, so raising the birds I had hunted for years was a natural for me. Being married to my best friend, wife & help mate is all I could ask for. My wife of 34 years and I love living on our farm and doing the chores it takes to maintain it. We are living a wonderful slow life in our retirement. Our grand daughter is such joy. Having a big garden to feed us, raising bees for honey, loving our pets and no debt. I feel blessed to have enjoyed this country living and sustaining our family through growing our food and simple ways my whole life. I am happy to see others across this great country deciding to live instead of just collecting more. A less-stress farm life is making us very happy. *******************************************************

Just Going About Daily Chores

Kinda boring on the farm.  Quail are brooding great, they are about ready to go on auto feeders and waterers. Our second hatch will be next Sunday.  Our next brooder barn is all ready except putting down the pine chips.  Received 2 orders this week from dog trainers. Our garden is giving us lots of greens and the blueberries are going great.  The strawberries are all but done. Noticed some pears coming on our young trees.  We haven't heard any cicadas yet.  They seem to be all around the area near us.   Was looking at our grove of persimmons and there is going to be a huge crop this fall.  Thinking about doing a 'You Pick' on them.  Our neighbors are cutting their first hay crop, it is very good.  Life in the country is sure peaceful, especially if I leave the TV off and the crazy news that seems to permeate the world.
