|A picture taken by our 4yr daughter (who is now 10 eek!) when she was just messing around with my camera that she wasn't supposed to have is now one of my favorite photos so I decided to make it the face of The Bull's Pen.|
Fun with the Bull Family as seen through the eyes of me (Ruby Bull) with lots of help from the hubby too(Thad). Being raised in this same area our whole lives we have enjoyed the pleasures of the country/farming way of life and we enjoy sharing this way of life with our children.
We are located on the edge of a small town in Upstate NY we enjoy every minute of our life in the county. Our kids, animals, friends and of course our family make each day a dream come true for us. We love our lives here and all that our property has to offer us. The kids have a brook, and 50acers to learn all about life on and we have our three kids to watch have fun. What more could parents ask for.
The Bull's Pen is the farm with out the barn so to speak. We have a wide variety of animals, from a turtle to goats but we are not technically farmers. Neither my husband or I was raised farmers so most of the fun with our animals are new experiences to us. We were both raised in families of former farmers from day gone by so farming is in our blood just not our budget. We are probably put in the "Hobby" farmers category.
Gardening is one joy the whole family shares. The only vegetable the kids ever want to eat are fresh from the garden and definitely not cooked. We have a shorter growing season here then a lot of places. We usually harvest into Sept for the delicate produce and sometimes we are lucky to still have part of October. The Hubby started our first garden with only tomatoes and cucumbers in a small flower bed in our first apartment together and well now we grow tons of stuff. We usually harvest enough potatoes to get us though the winter if not longer.
I love crafting, sewing, and yes even using power tools. I love sharing my creations even more so most of the things I create are for others. Most of the time there is no reason for some of the stuff I make other then I just wanted to. So I share them with all of you in case you are curios what I do all the time. lol
I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to give me any ideas/information on how I can make it better!
