Mid August Garden Update!

Mid August Garden Update!

We're in a holding pattern in the garden right now. Not because nothing is happening... but because everything is happening (it's just not all coming into the kitchen yet)!   We still have snap peas and beans coming in the door on a regular basis, as well as kale and basil. Our newest harvest, though, is squash! Not at an…

A Girl & Her Goats

We've finally named the girls!!! I know, I know...it took forever! Let me officially introduce you to Lucy and Ethel. Lucy is the younger/smaller blondie, full of enthusiasm and curiosity...

For example: I've learned how to "walk wide" to corral them in the general direction I want them to go... I've learned…
Making it “Official”

Making it “Official”

Nine years ago today, Kim and I called it "official" and intentionally began our lives together. The past nine years have included two daughters, four homes, and this crazy, ever-growing journey of ours from a life built in the city to one growing in the country with more dreams for our future than can ever be counted. And now, as…
Slow to Harvest

Slow to Harvest

While we are not new to gardening, we are new to this space. And while we have planted a bazillion seeds, they haven't all germinated. And while it feels as though this property has been our home for ages, it's really only been a few months. So, I have to remember that, though our first real harvests are just beginning…
Life, Unfiltered

Life, Unfiltered

Technology allows us to edit and crop the real life out of the "real lives" we all share via our websites and on social media. ¬† As a blogger, I want to document our journey while creating a pretty, inviting space that you, my dear reader, want to spend some time exploring.
