Lumber Jacking It

Right after we moved into the house, we realized that this enormous tree was not healthy and even worse was way too close to our house. We knew it would have to come down eventually, but other priorities got in the way. Winter arrived before we knew it, and we were afraid one heavy ice […]

Our First Farm Christmas

We don’t have our families close for the holidays, but we were excited to make our farm family traditions on our first Christmas at the farm. We don’t have a lot of pine trees on the farm, so we had to buy our tree from a local tree farm. Once we brought it home, we […]

Snow Day Visitors

We decided to put on our snow boots, mittens, and hats and go out for a snowy walk around the farm this past weekend. I forgot how peaceful a hike in the snow can be — and the amount exercise required. I forgot that part also. On our peaceful walk we were also pleasantly surprised […]

Let it Snow!

The farm blanketed in fresh snow is almost as lovely as blanketed in green or the gold and orange of fall. And this snowfall was even more special because it was unexpected.

The Porcupine and the Jeep

It’s 12:30 a.m. What in the world is making that noise- like a little man with a little hammer right outside our window? A few peeps out the window and a quick trip outside turn up no results. Only after another 30 minutes of the incessant tapping, did we fully investigate and discover the pokey […]

It’s So Itchy

I am one of those lucky people who either have never encountered poison ivy or just don’t have a reaction to it. That all changed this weekend, and I had no idea how lucky I previously was! That plant pictured above is Poison Sumac- hideous beast that I had never encountered before. Not only is […]

Our Tomato Patch Runneth Over!

It started out well… We had fun going into the garden each day and grabbing a few fresh tomatoes to enjoy. I knew we had more plants than we needed and more than we had originally agreed to, but then the deer and the woodchucks were helping themselves to the harvest. We thought we would […]
