Welcome to the Farm! {grow your own food}

I think we all know by now that I pretty much live on a farm. My 25-year-old city-girl self would never have believed that this is where I’d be 5 years later– in the middle of nowhere with a pen full of quails, a compost bin and a backyard beehive. Not that I’m complaining. I’m…
