Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Please Don't Eat Me!

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Imagine our surprise when we walked out this morning to find this HUGE preying mantis guarding our front porch.  This is my favorite bug, so I'm considering it good luck that he's hanging out at our house.  (Not to mention they're great at eating other non-beneficial bugs.)
