Spring on the farm is not usually my favorite time of year. I have insane elm tree pollen allergies, and since my house is surrounded by elm trees … well, you can imagine my springtime trauma. But this year, even though I’m already sneezing and wheezing, I am excited about spring. Can you blame me?? For the first time in several years, my old-fashioned lilac bushes didn’t get caught in a late killing freeze, Continue Reading
This post was most recently updated on July 11th, 2015Clearly, those people do not live in the country. Oh sure, it’s ‘nature’s rebirth’, a renewal of life … blah, blah, blah. To those of us in red dirt country, spring means one thing – mud. At least it normally does. For the past several years, this part of the country has been in a terrible drought. The last time it rained with any accumulation and Continue Reading
This post was most recently updated on April 21st, 2018 I bought a fancy ‘grown up’ camera last summer. It was on QVC as the ‘Today’s Special Value’, and it was a deal I couldn’t pass up.

This post was most recently updated on May 18th, 2015Well, I didn’t post an update to The Farm Mama yesterday like usual, but I swear I have a very good reason. *Insert anticipation-building musical intro* … It was … Date Night! I know, I know – it was SUPER exciting for me, too! It was the first actual date night Sexy Hubby and I have had in about 14 years. That’s coincidentally right about the Continue Reading
This post was most recently updated on May 18th, 2015It’s no secret that I get really excited about saving money. I don’t think of myself as cheap per say, just really discerning about how I spend money. I’ll buy things I don’t need, but I want to find the best possible deal on those things. It’s how I roll. To further my money-saving efforts I’ve done a lot of different things. I’ve clipped coupons, made Continue Reading
This post was most recently updated on May 18th, 2015Well, it seems I just cannot stay away from y’all! I’ve got another fun and super helpful tip for you from the Farm … You know how when someone “goes to the bathroom” in your house and even though you might have air fresheners or sprays or incense or what-have-you in there, the stink just sort of … lingers? Yeah, me, too. It’s nothing to be Continue Reading
This post was most recently updated on July 23rd, 2015Okay, I know I said I was on a break with the blog, but I found something so exciting this past week that I just have to share. Where I live, the red dirt is a nightmare for white clothes. It’s so hard to get out that I stopped even buying my family white clothing to wear years ago. No white t-shirts except for pajama shirts.
