Winter Work

Sunset at the Homestead
Recovering from another winter storm...does not look like this anymore.  K is out plowing with the tractor...definately glad we have it up and running this year!  I have been working on the garden plan and organizing seeds and getting anxious to start some seedlings!!!  I think it is a bit tooo early...just want to get my hands in the dirt!!!  Looking forward to Spring!

What will I fill this with this Spring?  Any thoughts/ suggestions or ideas?  Feel free to share.












Hanging out

This was last week...they won't be doing that today.  I think there is about 2 feet of snow in the field at the moment...they are calling for rain this weekend so should make for a good mess!!

WELCOME 2014!

January 4th 2014...time flies.  Thank you to all our friends and family for a wonderful 2013.  We met alot of new friends and have gotten to know our community even better.  Having our farmstand at the Riverhouse Rug Hooking and Fibre Art studio was a great experience and we thank Jane for letting us share her space...we look forward to this summer!!

Speaking of summer... we got hit with a big snowstorm yesterday and it was a great day to catch up on house "stuff" that never gets done because there is always something else to do.  I have all the seeds pretty much ordered and delivered so now just have to plan the garden out and dream of what I will put in the greenhouse...once it defrosts.
Frozen Greenhouse...



The temperatures have been ccccold...minus 20!  We are cuddled by the woodstove and cozy...a little stressful for our chickens though! K has been hard at work today playing...I mean working on the tractor and plowing us out...

Smarty Pants is also enjoying the indoor days...in his new spot at the "lookout" window.  I don't think that he is very comfortable...
