Little Gardens

Gardening is never one of instant gratification; it’s a slow process at times. Except for the weeds. They have this ability to grow overnight it seems. There is so much to be learned from a garden and I’m grateful for our bit of land where we can get our hands in the dirt together.

Meet Blue

We've a new arrival to our tiny farm! Our highland jersey cross, Sugar, was due to calf at the end of this week. The 19th on my calendar to be exact. However, we were surprised with an early arrival. It was a wet but warmish night and Dan went out late in the evening...

Storm Arthur

Friday night we celebrated the opening of the coffee bar that is now sharing the Dan Froese Photography studio space and the weather cooperated in giving us a perfect evening. Saturday morning however, we awoke to high winds and power outage. We're somewhat used to...

June Garden~2014

I had this post ready to go last night and then my iPad closed it before I could save it. An incredibly frustrating thing at 11:30 at night when I should have been sleeping. The above picture is my weedy tomato and pepper patch. I'm fighting a bit of a losing battle...

Chicks 2014

After 21 days of much questioning from the littles as to when there would be chicks, we heard cheeping from under Mama Hen yesterday. Between Aneliese and I, there were many, many "just a quick peek". To do a head count, to check if that little one had dried out and...

A Farm House Tour: The Laundry/Boot Room

Yesterday was Mother's Day and after my breakfast in bed and sweet cards from my girls, we spent the day around home. I cleaned and did some fresh decorating along with reading stories, chatting, napping,  cuddling, and eating meals made by Dan. At ten pm as I gave...

Getting Hay

Dan laughed at me taking pictures and said that I'm giving you the romanticized version of getting hay because generally he goes for hay in the dark after the girls' bedtime. Sometimes he and I unload and carry to the barn together which is lovely farm romance. More...

Around the Farm in February

It's been a rough couple of days on "the farm". I blame it on the wind. The recordings in the farm journal haven't been fun. February 14: Wind blew part of the shelter over. February 14: Wind blew grain storage door open. Cows got into the grain. February 15: Called...

A Midwinter Farm Day

The girls haven't been coming out to do chores with us much this winter. It seems it's either cold and windy or slippery and sloppy so usually Dan and I tag team caring for the animals (Though truthfully, Dan does the lion's share.) However, this morning Dan left for...

Penny (Our latest addition to the farm)

January had been a full, non-blogging sort of month. I've been meaning to blog, really I have but I just never seem to find the time. Partly because we've been spending a lot of time keeping the house warm and the animals relatively comfortable through the storms that...
