"Today, it is brought home to me, that it is no small thing to celebrate a simple life." Bilbo Baggins
Yes, I'm a J.R.R.Tolkien fan. ;)
One of the things which makes me happy is Backyard Farming. I'm a hobbit at heart, although I sometimes fancy myself an elf.
I will be posting about my backyard farm under the name of Westfarthing Homestead in honor of Tolkien. The actual backyard farm has a different name for privacy reasons.
I'm interested in chickens, raised gardens, container gardens, rabbits, quail, and chickens, and maybe Nigerian Dwarf Goats one day.
Busy today, so I can't write a long post. However, here are two YouTube channels I've learned a lot from, for your viewing pleasure.
Imasurvivornthriver raises Jumbo Coturnix Quail and rabbits, Florida Whites I think. https://www.youtube.com/user/imasurvivornthriver
Pavlov Fowl raises organic chickens and quail for eggs only, I think. I think she's vegetarian. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX1ZrB4FT0mPuxcttCM6ljQ
Now, go dig in some dirt or dance in some mud puddles!
