  • Harley and I wanted to say sorry for the lack of posts the last two weeks. My husband and I have been in the midst of some big changes for our family and took some much needed time to adopt some new things into our lives! But it’s lamb jackpot season and so I’m excited to be back and sharing what’s happening here again!

  • Seed potatoes. 
You put them in the ground and in three weeks you will start to see green leaves popping up... a few months we will dig up the plants to find the tuber and POTATOES have multiplied... It’s weird... I’m all like so I order potatoes, that look just like potatoes, and then I let them start to sprout and “eye” and then I cut them up and they multiply and give me even MORE potatoes.. Ok, I get down with that ! 
Potatoes do ya thang!

  • I keep telling myself that I’m going to miss these days... The little feet on hardwood floor, the mess and the chaos. .
But I sometimes find it so hard to take it all in... the beautiful mess that is life right now? Where are my type a mamas at? .
Will I ever have a happy kid and a clean house? .
I’m truly asking..... . 
Send help.......... and a maid.

  • When the shorts you just bought in March that fit like a glove then are now getting too 𝐁𝐈𝐆... 🔥
.
.
This journey isn’t about the number on the scale anymore, because quite frankly it’ll go from 147 to 152 in the matter of 24 hours. Did that bother me for a while? Yes. I thought there was something wrong with me because of it. Turns out my body likes to play with the numbers.🤷🏻‍♀️
.
.
I might not have crazy inches shed or weight lost with this program I’m testing out for all of you because LIFE has been a little crazy + I’m no longer trying to lose weight — but I did make some crazy 𝐦𝐮𝐬𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐬𝐞𝐭 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐬.
.
.
I like to say I dropped some emotional & mental pounds the last 100 days because I truly have. I’ve proved to myself I can do 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙙 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙩 & 𝙘𝙧𝙖𝙯𝙮 𝙖𝙨𝙨 𝙢𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙨. I can maintain progress made for months and not stress about giving myself treats or “falling off of plan” and that is 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀
. 👊🏻
.

I can’t wait to MELT with you soon!🔥💪🏼

  • I've not always been like this (this is my second season), but our veg game is strong! I mean growing our own. There's something so fulfilling about pulling a huge carrot out of the ground or harvesting your own beets. Feeling so much more connected to the Earth is an understatement.🍠🥬🥒🍓🥦
•
I've started noticing in the last few days that our baby radish leaves all have little holes in them, and yesterday I finally found the culprits. Tiny little beetles have been chewing at the leaves, which is just not on! •
So in true me-style, I ran into the house and made a spray to word off these little critters!
•
✨BEETLES BE GONE Spray Recipe✨
✔️10 drops Rosemary
✔️10 drops Peppermint
✔️10 drops Thyme
✔️10 drops Clove ✔️Top with water and spray all over leaves

  • It’s hard to believe 6 yrs ago Casey & I met in Chicago both from the Hampton Roads area and eventually wanting to return! He is now my husband, father to our children, business partner on the farm, & best friend on most days 😝! We now live as far from a city as possible & are doing things we could have never imagined! #farmlife #lovelove #babies #happyfathersday #littlelate #partnerincrime #husband

  • Part of this #berm washed out with one of our recent heavy rains, so we shoveled all the dirt back in and dug a better #trench up at the top. Now we are #mulching trees that we had to cut down to clear the garden space and will be planting a cover crop in it soon to strengthen it👩‍🌾 #lifeonthefarm #somuchdirt

  • Who else could look at cows and pictures of cows and videos of cows all day long?? ✋🏼
.
This group of cows will all be brought up to have CIDRs put in. The CIDRs will synchronize their estrus (heat) so that we can breed this group at the same time.
.
This will allow us to have a shorter calving window and potentially a more uniform calf crop in terms of size at weaning.

  • I love the stillness and quiet of this place at 4 in the morning. I can assure you that from the hours of 7:30 AM-7:30 PM, this place looks and sounds so much different. It becomes way more chaotic, loud, and messy 😆🤷🏻‍♀️ #MomLife.
.
.
'Twas an early morning brainstorming ideas for y'all. While I have lots of exciting things in the works for the Driskell Farm shop, I thought, who better to ask than YOU?!
.
.
Please head over to my stories and answer a few short questions to help me better provide y'all with items you want in the coming months! And if you don't have time for that, I would still LOVE to hear your ideas so drop them in the comments below!
.
.
And just in case you forgot, I wanted to say thank you. You see that picture of those people set as the wallpaper on my computer screen? That's my family. And each time you allow us into your home, whether that be through a bar of soap, a soap tray, or even just supporting us on social media...you support us as a family. Our small shop thrives on the love and feedback we get from you! I personally pray for each and every one of you as orders are shipped off, hoping that our products can impact you and your families even a fraction of how much you've impacted us and thanking God for allowing our paths to cross. You are appreciated more than you know!
.
.
Have a great Monday!

  • Our two newest kittens, born just hours ago to Olivia. Still waiting to see if the liter grows. Assuming just these two cuties, the girls will then go through the “who’s cat is mine” and naming process.... #lifeonthefarm

  • Better late than never!  Cukes are on their way!  Season extension has never meant as much as it has this year... We've lost almost a month of our regular growing season due to cold temps, high winds, and flooded fields... But inside the tunnel it almost feels like July!  #seasonextension

  • When you are up close it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. But every know and then, when you give yourself the chance to step back, you catch a glimpse of that big picture.
.
Our place is a mess. The garden is a mess, the house is a mess, the chicken coop stinks, the shed is a mess, the yard is a mess, our fences are a mess... But man is our corner of this world beautiful when you look up and stop focusing on the small things!
