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 […]

Green Acres

Holy Wah! The farm is so green right now. It so exciting to see it teaming with life and getting to explore all the woodland plants, river front foliage, and pasture plants. We love sharing our farm adventures with all of you, but we have ulterior motives for this post. Putting all these shots from […]

Termites?!

Nope, not termites- wood boring beetles have eaten away our deck. Sigh- the wild life here before us and here after us for sure continue to be a pain in our a**, literally. A few weekends ago when Drew’s family was visiting we were having a great time eating, drinking, and generally hanging out on […]

A Little River Relax

It was so nice to have Drew’s family visit the farm this past weekend and not just because it gave us a reason to pause on all the work we need to accomplish and take a few days to just enjoy our beautiful place. But that was surely part of it! We were excited to […]

But we didn’t grow this for you!

The Good News = The garden is growing! We have little pea and bean sprouts, some lettuces, and some small cucumber, broccoli and brussel sprouts. Nothing is quite ready to harvest yet- well at least not for human consumption. Which brings us to… The Bad News = The River Mountain Farm animal community is feasting […]

All we do is Reno, Reno, Reno

It’s been three months and it finally seems like we can see some results in our renovations of the Caretaker’s Cottage; the guest house is coming together. We have been demoing and putting back together the bathroom, the kitchen, and the living area. We have hit a few bumps along the way- water leaks requiring […]

Rockslide!

When life hands you a rock slide- you get out your sledgehammer. That’s the inspirational poster, right? But whether inspirational or not, when you live on the side of the mountain and it starts spreading itself into the only way you have off the mountain, you have to take matters into your own hands. My […]

Will it Grow?

I grew up with a garden and while I loved the fresh tomatoes, corn, and strawberries that came out of it each summer, I did not look forward to all the work planting and weeding and general tending each year. But when you buy a farm with 30 acres of pasture land, you CAN’T NOT […]

Worn Out His Welcome

We were so excited when our first visitor arrived. And boy did he arrive, announcing himself in all his finery. We had fun at first as he pecked around the house, letting us know where he was at all times, especially when he wasn’t happy. Eventually we began to worry that he was going to […]
