Weed City (AKA Market Garden – Beginnings)

Weed City (AKA Market Garden – Beginnings)

7,000 square feet. Seven thousand square feet. That's the approximate size of the fenced in Market Garden that's all set up on our brand new homestead and just waiting for us to dig in. That's 15 times the garden bed square footage we had set up throughout our entire urban farm! That's pure potential all wrapped up in a nice little…
Homestead Tour!

Homestead Tour!

You guys, I cannot even begin to explain to you just how excited I am about our new house and the amazing property it sits on!  It almost seems unreal that everything we've been working for and planning for and dreaming about has manifested in such a wonderful rental!  So, instead of waxing poetic about our new home and why…
Settling in…

Settling in…

Whew... We made it! Despite a few bumps in the road (I was sick, Sprout was sick, the Uhaul places here are...hmmm...let's just say...very challenging to deal with, we had so.much.stuff to move), and thanks to some truly amazing friends and family, we made it! We're finally in our new home, unpacking boxes, searching for clothes, finding homes for everything,…

Fleeting Moments

This girl. This sweet, strong, spitfire of a girl...keeping me on my toes...encouraging me to see the world through new eyes each and every day.  She reminds me to be present in this very moment (despite the ever growing To Do list ) by continuously showing me that nothing is constant...every thing is changing, growing, evolving around us all.the.time. If…

This Saturday (the day after tomorrow!) we will pack our chickens in boxes, drive 30 minutes north, and introduce them to their new coop. We will walk through the house and property with our new Landlady, ask questions, and be given the rundown of what's what. We will begin the next chapter in this ever growing journey of ours by taking…

Eartheasy Soap Review & Giveaway

I recently received an email from Courtney at eartheasy asking if I would be interested in doing a review and giveaway for you all, my Dear Readers, as they begin to launch a new line of all-natural and environmentally friendly soaps.  Now, before receiving the email I'd heard of eartheasy, but wasn't incredibly familiar, so I did a little digging.…
So much hope…

So much hope…

With Spring officially upon us, there are signs of the changing seasons everywhere! From the fresh air to the spring rains...the greening grasses to the increased egg production of our lovely ladies, there is so much hope in this season. Wishing you a lovely Spring, filled with as much hope as your heart can hold. xoxo, M Linking up to WP's weekly photo…
Farm Photo Friday – An Invitation

Farm Photo Friday – An Invitation

After writing in this space for four + years, I've been thinking for a while about how to breathe some new life into this blog of mine, but I just haven't been quite sure how to do that. I've thought about creating a standard Linky Party, but that seems over-done at this point, especially in the homesteading realm (there's so many…
