Growing Up Agrarian

We are four Christian, homechurched, homeschooled, homesteading, agrarian children growing up in Central Texas on a Ranch. We are Tracy,(15) Jennifer,(10) Robert,(9) and Sarah(5) Bunker. We also have one more brother, Thomas Shepard Bunker, who is in the courts of glory. We like to read books, raise animals, and play on the land. Tracy will be writing about the stuff we do. We hope you enjoy our Adventures!

A little update....

Hello from the Ranch.

Mom finished scrubbing the floors in the porch today and then she polished them with linseed oil and mineral spirits. They look nice and dark now. Mom and Mrs. Ante have been working on our porch, making it look nicer and more organized. They are going to be putting up new curtains, too. It is looking nice so far.

We have been cleaning up outside, picking up odd boards and clutter. We also have been doing work in Dad's garden and in our own little ones. Tracy has a garden with rabbit food in it.She planted Carrots, Turnip Greens, Cabbage and Endive. They are all doing well, and she sprinkled diatomatious earth on it to keep out the critters.

Well, we have more chores awaiting us!

Dear Bunker children,

Thank you for all of your posts, here! How nice that you are raising rabbits, vegies for them, learning psalms, hymns, etc., and growing other vegies and even scooping poop for compost! And helping Dad butcher hogs and build his office floor. Karen and I always have said~"there was never any time to be bored on the farm. There was plenty of work, and all play was creative play using our imaginations or creative skills. The best environment for a child to be raised!" God bless you for sharing yourselves and all you do here. Your mom's organized porch with polished floor, and new curtains sounds nice too! Have a nice Ranchfest!
