An early Easter Egg(er) hunt!

An early Easter Egg(er) Hunt! So the other evening while we were out collecting eggs, I looked up and noticed some feathers sticking out between the old boards under the eaves.  I first thought that it was just a birds nest since we have some barn swallows that have nested in the barn before.  Upon…

It’s a Growing Problem

It’s a Growing Problem Well, I admit.  I’ve got a problem.  I just cant stop checking out seed catalogs and buying interesting seeds.  My latest binge is dry beans.  I’ve got a plot where we’ll be trialling some new varieties that we aren’t quite ready to do at scale or that we just want to…

Hatching, planning, waiting…

Welcome to Autumn

We’ve been busy as we change seasons – ended with a decent amount of veggies even though we didn’t get the garden planted until late.  Definitely learned some lessons to apply to next year, especially as it relates to insect and weed pressure. The rototiller runs again (huzzah!) and it’s been used to get the…

July update

I have been slacking with my posting duties being too busy with everything that's been going on around here. We finally fenced in the fruit trees, expanding the area so we may add blueberry bushes in the Spring. Now we won't have to battle the elk to keep them from stripping our trees bare. The…
