Thought for the day

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who as the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. [Theodore Roosevelt]

This blog has been quiet for some time as I have been real busy on the farm and with my business.  I am reopening this blog but I will be focusing on the things I really love such as sustainable agriculture, preserving food, self-sufficiency, cooking and life on the farm in general.

First let me start with a reading list.

If you have not read it, start here.  This will change the way you look at food and what you eat daily.

If you are too busy to read or do not like reading, watch this movie.

Finally, I will leave you with one of the most enjoyable reads of all by Joel Salatin
