Oh my, there’s clutter and everything galore
There are Christmas boxes all over the floor
I have books aplenty and furniture too
I love all my beautiful things, this is true
Vibrant plants fill the places fighting for sun
An inspiration ignited has begun
Trying to find my husband in all this stuff
But getting started here can be kind of tough
So out with the old, the new year rings tonight
And I want my house to be a pretty sight
So we’ll start with a paint can of creamy white
And begin to fill this living space with light
As the promise of bright tomorrow dawns clear
I’ll tone down the clutter, put things away I hold dear, decorate, because that’s what I do
And start the year 2019 anew.
Check back January 2nd for the “After” pictures and post! Happy New Year!
These late summer days have found a familiar rhythm that I once knew, only this time it is less rushed. My gardens in this climate are amazing and the height of the weeds is pretty astonishing too. Once I could no longer find the corn stalks I donned my clippers and headed into the mess […]

All my Farmgirl readers, I am transitioning everything to my newer blog, Medicinewolf.net. Today’s post continues a post I did in January on Farmgirl about the history of our new house. Continue following me on Medicinewolf! We have lots to do!
That’s right, Folks. From small town urban farm to prairie homestead to friend’s houses to apartment living while farm dreaming to….our own homestead. One that we own. As we approach the four year anniversary of Farmgirl School, how fitting to start it off with a bang. A new farm. An urban farm. Watch as we search, find, purchase, decorate, and turn an ordinary place into a beautiful and inspiring homestead. Farmgirl School is back.
Musings from my new blog…
Don’t miss any of our new adventures! I should have named my new blog Citygirl School! This is my newest post on Medicinewolf! To sign up simply add your email on the right hand side of the page on medicinewolf.net
In winter, you might find a child riding a zebra or a toddler on a horse. Perhaps you’d like to sit with Santa or drink hot chocolate. We choose our perfect Christmas tree and haul it home happily in the season.
In spring this same place is a gardener’s best friend. Heirloom seeds abound, many plant starts, and a greenhouse of intoxicating brilliant blooms to take home. I get my seed potatoes, garlic, onion sets, seeds, and most of my plants from my local nursery, Holly Acres.
It is so important to shop local. I cannot emphasize this enough. Our communities rely on the mom and pop shops thriving. Holly Acres is owned by a family in our community, whose children grew up with ours, who shop local themselves, and who have an amazing oasis of nature and beauty just down the road.
Last year when we needed a bird bath for our instant rose garden, I got it there. Same with the roses. And when I taught you how to plant trees, I got the trees there. They have the best fruit trees as well as many, many other varieties of trees. They have everything one could want at a really great price. They are very competitive with big box faceless stores.
If you need seeds, garden décor, compost, or healthy affordable trees, head to our local nursery, Holly Acres and say Farmgirl sent you! (And if you don’t live here, seek out a local nursery by you!)
