[Emily has written about her first father taking her to a community farm and teaching her how to milk cows when she was little. Recently, she was telling me that her orphanage had its own little farm and garden too. I was fascinated with the stories and recommended that she share it with you in her blog.]
Beginning in Russia orphanage farm they have piglets and chicken, when pig get bigger then we kill a pig and cook big a big store, in the orphanage kids cleanup a poop and also we eat a pig when house cook [it].
Also we put poop in a big wagon and also we pick up potatoes or cabbage or tomatoes, or onions. And also we cook more food because we use sometimes a Russian big knife to cut a meat. And also because coal workers did cut meat apart, I know sometimes we cook chicken too. And also we cook when we need potatoes or onions, or tomatoes or cabbage. And also children get tired cleanup a poop because it’s hard for them. But really we need eat because make sure we survive. Sometimes chicken say to kids a bock. And also we cleaning a pig with buckets water.
And also we tie a piglet big then we also we put on the fire sometimes, and also we did different way sometimes but really we eat more often a piglet and also we did cleanup inside system.
And also all animals been wake and also we cook food like cherry, and also we have big fire stove in the orphanages.
And also we make a fire make sure we stay warm outside, we start each day at the orphanage and then we go to the farm for the day we work on the farm, do all these things that I mentioned then return to the orphanage at the end of the day. Some days the weather was warm some days it was cold. It was never really hot on warm days, but it was really cold on some of cold days. The pigs were kept on a large farm. They were kept in a pen called the pig pen.
There were also chickens on the farm and they were kept in a chicken coop. They brought milk for us to drink with our food. They in the orphanage have a lot of kids. If one of us get a sick they would help us find out what is wrong and help us get better we walk from the orphanage to the farm, it wasn’t a very far walk we have coats and hats to stay warm during the walks to the farm. There were a lot of other kids at the orphanage beside me. I never counting how many kids, there were besides me. And also we did fun sometimes in the day. We also have 4 goats too, because some kids thinks that goats get stinky and also we did almost sometimes a month cook piglet and chicken. And also we make soups like creamy potatoes with onion or tomatoes. And also we cook different kinds food.
And also my friend home girl, Natasha she sometimes [goes to the] farm with me. And also we spend time together when some people kill piglets a big then I watching when they doing about it. And sometimes we feed animals with slop and it’s warm food for piglets and also we mixed with spoon big. I like my friend home girl Natasha. It’s farm in the orphanage it’s small very bad. It’s farm in it’s old brown farm. My animal it’s pig favorite because we can eat a pig. We drink cranberry juice in the orphanages. We eat cabbages and potatoes, or tomatoes, or onions. We cook for piglets and some different kinds of food for chicken, because piglets don’t eat chicken food. Thank you for supporting me.
