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!

And God Made An Urban Farmer

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

J. taking a break to survey the day's work.
I was going to just post this picture but I think one thing is so funny about this that I just had to comment.  Nope, it's not the overalls or the bright orange shirt.  It's that shower-seat-turned-garden-seat.  We had been pricing those rolling garden seats and they're obnoxiously expensive!  Like $30 and up.  Shower seat at an auction?  Just $3.  And it's adjustable to different heights.  Booyah!

**If you haven't seen the Dodge Superbowl commercial featuring Paul Harvey and titled "And God Made a Farmer", take a few minutes to watch it.  I think it struck a cord with many a folk, including me.


  1. Excellent idea, I am loving the savings! Also, loved the Paul Harvey commercial. He was such a special man.

  2. I love auctions... scored many things at the old Calamity Acres from them. We have been looking at auction sites here for a few days, too.

    LOVE that picture!

  3. Yeah for you on the $3 find. I love the picture just for it's simplicity. It says to me ... "Aaahhh a job well done if I do say so myself".
