Black Sheep Farm !

It’s been awhile and it’s been busy! I know this is a blog space for mostly climbing blips and outdoor adventures, but something so awesome is in the works on my family’s land. We are the proud owners of 10 acres out in magnolia Texas. And for the longest time we hadn’t done much with it. Our 14 dogs usually just took reign of it. We own about ten pigs alongside a donkey and horse. But let’s face it those guys don’t take up much space.

As of late December my wife’s sister and boyfriend moved home to the farm. And with 8 people and two house holds on the land, we’ve decided we need to provide for ourselves. We’ve decided to grow all of our vegetables and plants, while having enough to also sell at farmers markets.

We have successfully grown over 500 seedlings after many trials and errors. We’ve got seedlings ranging from cabbage,beets, tomatillos, and even sunflowers now planted on tilled land!

there have been long hot and exhausting days trying to figure out a timed water source, root stimulates, and even how to keep all the animals away. But so far we have found our way and all on our own! My family is pretty proud of what we were able to Accomplish in about three months time, and cannot wait to see just how big our small funny farm will grow!

As always thank you for thso read!

    I am not climbing (though I’d love to), but I connected with your post because, as a trail runner, I have had such a long recovery time after being injured last September. I am back to it and improving, but sometimes when I think of the ability and fitness I’ve lost, I get discouraged. It is important to remind oneself of the improvements one is making, and to stay patient. I think for my upcoming race, I’ll still be that sailor going through rough seas, but hopefully, that journey will lead to calmer waters and better performance later in the year. Thinking long term and trying to focus on the joy of the moment!
