Onions

I was cleaning out a portion of my garden bed and knew there were a couple of onions ready to harvest as I spied their signature periscope-like flowers marking their location above a sea of weeds, but there were many more than at first glance.

Carrot Harvest

It is time to start harvesting carrots! Actually, might be a little past time, but that's okay! I hear sheep and horses love carrots as much as humans.

What’s For Dinner? Chicken Chow Mein

We made chicken chow mein using spinach and cabbage from the garden for dinner last night. We often let the garden dictate our meals. Helps take a lot of the guess work out of the daily question, "what should I make for dinner?"

Salad, Salad, & More Salad

We've been trying to eat lots of spring salads as there is a lot of asparagus and rabbit-disdained lettuce and spinach. There will be even more here soon as the plants started in March come ready for harvest! Need to put a shade cloth out!

Newest Additions

We decided we are going to start raising our own chickens and ducks.

Last Day of Off-Farm Job

Well, it's over. I'm done. Today was my last day. I'm no longer employed by anyone but myself. I feel like I just hurled myself off a cliff!

Fall Garden in the Low Tunnel

I cleared the summer weeds and grass out of my low tunnel and planted a fall garden on September 18. The tunnel is roughly 25 feet long and sporting 6 mil poly. I thought I'd take you for a tour and show you how things are growing!

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.
