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!

Wet and Cool at the Ranch

Hello again, Tracy here with the latest updates.

The Sunday meal was excellent! We had beef brisket, cold pasta salad, stewed sweet potatoes, Alfredo pasta, mesquite bread, tomatoes with garlic sauce, green beans with bacon, watermelon, "Peanut Butter Oatmeal M&M" cookies and cherry cheesecake( My absolute favorite dessert!). Needless to say, we came home stuffed. Mr. Plumley brought us some sweet potato chips from H*E*B, and they were very good. So when we dig up our sweet potatoes I will try to find a recipe for those.

It is rainy here today. We have gotton about three inches total since last night. Praise the Lord for His provision.

Dad bought 3 10 pound boxes of bacon at the Bangs Grocer on Tuesday. And today we are in the process of canning it. I might post our process for canning bacon later, but now I have to go settle some children down.

Nummy! Where did you eat all that food? My husband just cooked beef brisket and homemade baked beans yesterday and we served it with garden vegies and fresh garden sliced tomatoes. It is sure a tasty meat when seasoned nice and cooked slowly. Ours was very tender and good!

Thanks for all your posts. I read them all but don't always comment.
