Raising livestock can be very rewarding. You get to build this intimate relationship with the creatures that provide your food. You take a great deal of care in their raising because you want them to be healthy and happy. The healthier and happier they are, the better the food they produce for you will be.
On the other side of the coin, sometimes, no matter how well you care for them, you’ll end up losing livestock. For whatever reason, they may give up before you do, and once they do, there really is nothing you can do to save them. Mindy was my biggest heartbreak. I still get teary-eyed when I think about her.

Inspired by the basic 2133 model, this beautiful home has retained the curb appeal, the inviting porch and the symmetrical gable design of the original but the added projection to the right side not only enhances the dining area with well fenestrated square footage it also adds enough space to accommodate three bedrooms on the main floor.

That’s my mantra these days, as I begin to jump out of my skin living the joys of the farming life. Waiting for winter to end. Waiting for the ground to dry so it can be worked. Waiting for the temperatures to climb. Waiting.
February and March were just brutal, weather-wise, here on the farm. We got slammed with multiple snow-, ice-, sleet-, hail-, and rainstorms. Couple those events with a lambing and calving schedule set for a March 1 target date, and life became a drag. Cutting and hauling wood in the knee-deep snow. Feeding hay in the knee-deep mud below a foot of knee-deep snow. It was, in the words of many “modern farmers” who speak about the days before tractors and combines, total and complete drudgery.
Look at me, playing the role of the complaining farmer. It’s
Decoration of a room means you are an artist presented with several surfaces. You have the walls, ceiling and floor as your canvas, where youll be able to create using paint, wallpapers, rugs, coverings, textiles and decorations for added pattern.

Dutch design company Tjep have been busy lately with their modular dining table being featured on PSFK recently as well. In a similar vein they are now working on furniture which can be mapped to your DNA custom furniture like no other.
The founder of Tjep has been working alongside Eric Wolthuis the founder of DutchDNA to produce these stunning creations. Erics own daughter was the subject of the piece featured at the top of this article. The table is called Darwin and was created using a swab of her DNA.

If you have to transport your fish from one location to another it’s best that you get fish bags so that your fish are moved in a watertight bag and in the safest means possible. There are leak-proof bags which are suitable for sea anglers and these ensure that you do not have to deal with any leakages while out in the sea. Some types are also designed to be used by kayaking fishermen and if you are one it’s best to get something that is of good quality so that you are certain it will not fall apart in a few months.
