Hi Friends!

What a week I’ve had. I’ve been down and out with strep throat.

For some silly reason, I thought I’d caught it early and would be ready to roll again in 24 hours.

Turns out the gentle pregnancy-mode meds kick in more like at 48 to 72 hours.

On account of me feeling crummy & taking time to rest, Farmin’ Friday is short this week. I’ll just share a few photos that might not have made it to the blog otherwise.

Cost Per Cow Per Year

I did manage to write one coherent post this week from my bed, about our new project tracking our cost per cow per year. Please check that out if you are interested in tracking those numbers for your cow herd. Or, check it out, if you’re interested in the numbers & business side of all this beauty! IMG_0262

Corn Fields & Flower Gardens

These pictures were taken on June 10th. So, the corn is even darker green, taller and healthier looking now. IMG_0341




We’ve come along way since these little seeds earlier this spring! This was taken on May 7th.IMG_0218


Here’s my truck all loaded down delivering seed and fertilizer to the field for John. She’s ‘squatting’ eh? IMG_9820

And, here are a few of my flowers. After a long, long, long (did I say long?) cold winter – flowers bring me an especially great joy.

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
