  1. Great site. We have a small farm and just got 3 bred jacob ewes a couple of months ago! Its great reading about someone else’s farm. Your boots in the mud reminded me of mine this weekend. So much rain here (olympic pennisula, washington) I need to start a blog. seeing yours incourages me

  2. You truly have a wonderful site, both in the vasty nothingness of the internet and on your farm in Oregon. Rather than writing a dreadful paper on Hesiod and Works and Days I’ve been reading your blog tonight, and I find that you seem to be living out my dream for the future. I’m stuck in this college town apartment on the prairie, dreaming of trees and hills and woodsmoke and chickens, hoping to find it some day when the money’s right and the chance hits. I read Small Farmer’s Journal and price gate panels at the farm store and plan in my head, hoping to one day get the chance to find my dream. Thank you for sharing your life at the Shambles, and I hope to keep reading it for a long time to come.

  3. We met at the Smith Barney meeting.
    Larry and I are enjoying your website. I haven’t read all of it but so far so good. Do you make time for sleep? So much going on! It’s great!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Greatly enjoyed reading some of your blog. Will read more later as it is about my bedtime. The photos are excellent.


  5. I enjoy your blog. I check in once a month or so and catch up on all of the entries I have missed. I was reading in the New York Times today about an heirloom variety of Hungarian pigs, Mangalitsas. They are a curly-haired pig. I thought that I would pass along the link in case you wanted to visit the guy in Washington state who is trying to raise them in this country. Sadly, you are the only person I know who is a farmer/livestock person. I’m a city gal, although my childhood was spent in a rural area. Perhaps someone of your acquaintance might like to become a gentleman/lady pig farmer. Here is the link.

    Thanks for the link! So pleased to know you enjoy the blog. I hope you can find a way to bring the farm home to the city.

  6. Lovely work throughout–photographs, words, ideas. Very inspiring, and so much energy! VLK.

    I feel like I just got an ‘A’ in class. Thank you!


  7. I love keeping up with others as they live a simpler life. Makes me wish I was younger altho we live on 3 acres I wish it was bigger. But probably enough for me to care for.

  8. I love reading your blog. I have learned from your experiences
    Thank you for shareing.

  9. Susan, I just stumbled upon your blog and must say I think you are a very talented and well rounded woman. I’m recovering from a health challenge so learned to knit only 2 weeks ago in an effort to keep myself a bit sedentary and found myself falling in love with it. I am an artist and was captivated with your post about the spinning class last summer, and will check your blog often. It’s the first one I ever wanted to subscribe to. Kudos, compliments and high praise for the lovely blog and for being truly a renaissance woman. If you find yourself heading north of Seattle some day I would love to invite you to visit my studio… very different than your world but interesting nonetheless. Sincere best wishes, Sharyn Sowell

    • Thank you for your kind comments. Get well, and do enjoy the knitting!

  10. Is pretty terrif stuff that you have here. I wish that I had a couple more lives to do what you do! A

    • Thank you, Ailsa! (But it’s not like you don’t keep busy on your own, you know.)
