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!



This post will just be a conglomeration of pictures, so enjoy.


This is the coon that I caught about two weeks ago.

We canned some tomatoes that we got for a bargain at the local produce market. Here is a bad picture of one that is floating in boiling water so that we can peel that skin off. And the next one is of the chopped tomatoes.

Here is a picture of some herbs from our garden that I made into iced tea.

These are some plaques that I stenciled on and sold. I have been doing a lot of these for selling, but I never seem to be able to get them into a store, because I sell them almost immediately. The Frau Meister's Mercantile said I can sell them in their store in Santa Anna.

Here is a picture mom snapped while I was making Sugar Cookies. I made a pink frosting with strawberry extract for flavoring, and it worked out great.

Our sweet potatoes are flowering, and Robert got a wonderful photo of one of the blooms.

That is all for now. Have a blessed day.

Enjoyed those pics. Nice bullfrog! Have you tried froglegs yet? I have some great folkart painting books if your interested? You could try your hand at this kind of painting on wood. I can bring the books with me when I come if you like. Cookies look yummy!

Nice pics! We also canned tomatoes from our garden. We also put lemon leaves from our garden into daddy's tea.

That would be wonderful if you brought those books. They would be fascinating to go through.
