Organic Food, yum!

My Parents House.

Did you know I grew up (since 4th grade) on a farm? Yes, I never had a summer job, I always worked on the farm to earn my $$$. I can buck hay, REALLY! Somewhere along the way I got super girly and squeely.

I love going to my parents house. I think Im bi-polar. I want to be crazy and move to the big city and live the urban life........BUT.... I just appreciate owning lots of land and growing your own food soooo much!

So until we do I will "grocery shop" at my parents.

So my cute little dad entered a bunch of his veggies at the state fair and came back with a TON of ribbons. He ended up with the purple ribbon which is granted to the farmer with the most points.... so like grand champion I guess. He is so funny!

My momma has work so hard on their garden and its huge like 1/2 acre! It has everything. I admire her. I hope I can be as hardworking as she is. She HATES to be bored and ALWAYS has a project around the farm or in the house.

While my mom and I were hanging out my dad and Phil butchered his kill! SICK!

My dad is sooooo proud of Phil. He thought it was so special that Phil wanted to butcher his deer together. Sometimes I think my dad likes Phil more than me. ha ha ha ;)

SICK DONT LOOK! this is Ace, Apple's future boyfriend and Pebbles, Apple's half sisiter.

The boys cut up the meat and my mom and I packaged it. so gross but Im proud of my guy!
We brought a TON of veggies home a week before this.
Pumpkins, pears, 4 kinds of tomatoes, tomatillos, zuchini, cucumber, green beans, oregon green giants, corn, egg plant, apples, banana peppers, jalepenos, carrots, 2 kinds of potatoes, rose mary, basil, oregano
