Hi, I'm Lona (rhymes with Donna). I'm an almost-done-with-homeschooling mom of 4 with a brand new son just added to our family by marriage. Our family lives on a small farm. We raise chickens and sheep, and produce wool products, compost, hay, corn and edible beans for our own use and for sale.
I enjoy reading, weaving, crocheting, music and having a clean, organized house. These are things I enjoy--but not often!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love to read comments!
When I chose the name for this blog, it was partly a play on the name of our farm--Shady Side Farm. It was also partly a statement on the decline of farming in America--that somehow a cloud has passed over the sun, and we work on while worrying what is to come.
