Farm Photo Friday – Four

Farm Photo Friday – Four

Happy Friday and Welcome to our Fourth edition of Farm Photo Friday! June marked the real beginning of the harvests!  Though not by our doing, but instead by the work of those who came before us, the itty bitty cherry tree and the two massive mulberry trees began ripening, giving us pound upon pound of tart and super sweet fruits.…
Family Garden Day

Family Garden Day

Sundays have become our Family Garden Day, when Kim, Sprout and I are joined by my oldest daughter and/or my little brother for a few morning hours of dedicated garden time. It started out as a plea for help due to our sheer state of Overwhelm as a direct result of now having so.much.garden.space in comparison to our 1/8 acre…

What an epic day yesterday was! It started out like any other day... Hot tea, a stroll through the garden, "Good mornings" to the goats and chickens, a text to my oldest daughter, the harvest of the first pea (!)... Blue skies and coyote calls. Nice enough.

May was cooler…
Playing Catch Up

Playing Catch Up

The last couple of weeks have been a bit trying for me.  Between work and home, there's just so much to do and so little time!  I'm exhausted all the time.  Happy, but truly exhausted. I feel behind on everything. The garden is still being put in, we need to name and register the goats, and the weeds just won't…

Introducing Mama Mello and…

The last few days have been a bit of a blur. It all started with the ending of another week and the beginnings of a whole new chapter in our lives and on our farm with the introduction of our very first milking goats! Since then, with a whole new routine building, we've spent a lot of time down in the…
