First Snow & Killing Freeze

Well, it has happened. However, it's worth it, if it helped contain the #EastTroublesomeFire and #CameronPeakFire. It'll probably be melted by tomorrow anyways!

Gourds & Bumblebees

They're quite jurassic in size and have set some wee baby gourds already. How did they accomplish this you ask? With the help of bumblebees.

The Day The Bees Came

I had just gotten home (week ago Saturday) and was checking over my garden, picking a few items, and on the way out I noticed - the Swarm! It was a nice size swarm and so we set about trying to encourage them to stay by moving them into the empty hive about 150 feet away.

Pancit (Bihon)

I learned to make pancit from the Chamorro people while we were stationed in Guam. There was always a huge lecture about which noodle to use, and the winner was always rice vermicelli. No one wanted pancit (canton) with thick noodle, it had to be thin!

Chinese Cabbage Harvest

It's chinese cabbage harvest time!

Shearing is Done! Time to Plant!

The shearing is done, the ewes and lambs have been turned out onto spring and summer pasture, and I don't have to feed hay anymore! Yay! If you are interested in fleece, let me know!

Bok Choy Harvest & Kadun Kadu (Chamorro Beef Soup)

We lived on Guam for 3 years before we got out of the U.S. Navy; it was the Husband's second tour on Guam. One of the recipes I instantly loved was Kadun Kadu and everytime I can get my hands on bok choy, I'm almost sure to make it.

Spring Flowers

Just wanted to share some beautiful spring flowers to brighten your day. I soooooo hope we get a few peaches this year! Crossing fingers!
