Small Farm 'Winter Sports'

Published Jan. 27, 2015

My husband calls them “winter sports.” But if the images of gliding down a picturesque slope on skis or cross-country skiing with every twig and tree branch covered in snow; or beautiful, graceful iceskaters doing long glides and jumps or even the brutal clash of ice hockey sticks comes to mind, you would be thinking of “normal wintersports” not Ashtabula County style, small farm “winter sports.” ...

The 12 Days of Christmas

Published Dec. 23, 2014

Most of you are probably in a panic because Christmas is only a day or so away. There are never enough hours in the day at this time of year.  Listening to Christmas music is one of my favorite ways to try to calm down.   Recently I heard the wonderful English carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and it occurred to me that our farm and the song have several things in common. The first line is “On ...

What Are You Thankful For?, by Kathy Smith

Published Nov. 19, 2014

What are you thankful for as we celebrate Thanksgiving 2014? High on my list is the fact that our country conducted an important mid-term election on November 4 of this year and there wasn’t a tank in sight. There were no protestors at our polling place, I didn’t have to fear for my life or the lives of my family if they did attempt to vote, and the evening news did not report any rioting in the s...

Most Farmers I Know Are Workaholics, by Kathy Smith

Published Nov. 3, 2014

Most farmers I know are workaholics. Of course anyone who works for themselves really has to be. When you are self-employed, everything and there’s no two ways about it---everything--- depends on you getting the job done no matter what it takes to do it.  But I think every one of our lives needs balance. Yes, the beans have to be combined, the hay has to be baled and the cows have to be milked. Yo...

It's Time to Preserve Some of the Abundance, by Kathy Smith

Published Sep. 24, 2014

Are you so tired of canning and freezing vegetables that you’re ready to scream?  Do you have nightmares about someone leaving a huge pile of peppers on your back porch or you’re seeing ears of corn in your dreams? Well, you’re not alone.   Here in northeastern Ohio we’ve had a pretty good year for nearly everything except tomatoes. Several people have said that there just was not enough sun to ma...

Summer is Going Fast! by Kathy Smith

Published Sep. 2, 2014

Summer is going fast! That means it’s time to pack up the kids, the dog, the tent and go camping. Most farmers I know think that they get enough time enjoying the great outdoors while working in the fields every day. So they really aren’t all that excited about camping when they have some rare time off. But that’s not true of our city cousins. A friend spent nearly a month getting ready for her fa...
