Hi Everyone, I'm Country Girl, Apple's Sister

I thought I would tell you a little about myself for my first post. As Apple told you, my husband and I have a small farm in zone four. He grew up on a farm and always dreamed of having a little land. We have 43 acres which is plenty for the two of us, his daughter Liz and our two cats Franklin and Princess! We are blessed with a creek that borders the property and have fun floating in it in the summer months. I didn't start gardening until we moved here. The couple that lived here for the 50 years before us loved to garden and left us some wonderful surprises! We moved in, in December so I had no idea of all the wonderful plants that would bloom as spring turned to fall. I had never gardened much before so it took me a while to figure out what the plants were that were already here and of course, I've add some new ones! My husband, enjoys puttering in the vegetable garden that seems to get bigger every year while I focus on the flowers. Franklin and Princess love to go out and lay in the sun in the summer. Franklin also loves to help us type so any misspellings you see from me are probably typos I will blame on him! Since blogging is all new to me, Apple added a photo of the creek and our cats below. Someday, I too will be able to add a photo!


  1. Welcome, Country Girl!! You are blessed to have such a lovely sister, she is one of my favorite blog people!
    I look forward to learning more about you, your gardens and your cats!

  2. Forty-three acres? Once the snow melts you must have such fun finding what pops up, as spring unfolds. And it's pretty cool that you and Apple also take care of your mom's garden.
