Stumbling homestead podcast

Maggie and me in front of daffodils

Feeding chickensI was interviewed for my first ever appearance on a podcast last week.  Boy was I nervous.  Luckily, Darcy from Stumbling Homestead eased me in gently and helped me out when I got stuck.  Thanks for being such a great host, Darcy!

If you want the real dirt on the interview, here it is: I was so scared, I had to go outside and weed while I talked.  I hope you can't hear the plants being ripped out of the ground.  (At least I wasn't ripping hair out of my head.)

My interview is up on Stumbling Homestead now.  I hope you'll give me the benefit of the doubt when you listen --- I'm a far better writer than I am a speaker.

As a side note, the photos here are from my great visit with my sister over the weekend.  I don't think our hens have ever eaten out of someone's hand before.  Thanks for sitting me down and making me listen to my own podcast, Maggie!  I guess I didn't sound as awful as I thought I did.

Our chicken waterer gives the flock something to do between hand-feedings.
