2009 Gardens

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Last year we put in a small garden¬† near our barn and ended up putting in too many plants and it got very crowded as everything grew. We’ve got 20 acres here so this year we decided to spread the garden out a bit and we put in a new garden area in our field [...]

I’m just looking…

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

This picture is just so funny. If Alva could talk I’m sure he’d say, “I’m just looking at her, I’m not going to touch her at all.”

If Alva could talk I’m sure he’d now say “Okay she’s taunting me, can I get her now, can I?”

If Sydney could talk I’m sure she would say “I [...]

Now we’ve got a Rockin’ Hot Tub

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Or more accurately, a hot tub in the rocks.

Daisy in the field

We have a bunch of daisies growing in our field. This is just an upclose photo of one. Not sure if it will show but there is a spider web around the petals of the flower.

Evening stroll…

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Chris was on his way back into the house this evening from locking the chickens in their coop for the night and as he was walking a little baby deer walked right up to him. He came running into the house and told me to come outside with him to see the baby deer. I [...]

Planting an Orchard

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

No family farm or homestead could possibly be complete without a small fruit orchard, so putting in some fruit trees has been on our wishlist since we moved here. For my recent birthday my mom gave us some money to put toward buying some apple trees.
We decided that if we were going to put the [...]
