behind


It's that time of year...the busy season creeps up on us.  
And, all-of-the-sudden, we are struggling to catch up.  
I had good intentions of posting on the blog yesterday.  But,
we raced a storm--getting tools under cover and baby chicks rounded up.
And then, piglets. 11 of them.

I love this time of year, but not the feeling of being so behind.
Tomorrow is a new day-right? :)

In non-farm news, we welcomed this adorable guy to our family!  
Welcome Hendrik and many congrats to my sister and brother-in-law!

this moment

Joining with Soulemama this week.
A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

around the farm




 


Around the farm this week:
~lots of spinach which means spinach salads every night 
with easy meals like homemade garlic breadsticks, tostadas and pizza 
(we simplify cooking this time of year!) ;)
~the "new" herb garden in progress
after my herbal spiral got taken over by quackgrass, 
i decided to level it out and start over this year.
~little boys watching the farmstand construction
~random chick picture that i can't move!
~little boys helping the farmstand construction
~rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb (is it possible to eat too much rhubarb pie??)
~wild turkeys in the pasture

What's going on at your farm, garden or homestead?

*I'm having issues with photos and this "new blogspot"...sorry!

~keep calm, craft on~






Joining Nicole this week with some crafting with kids.
The boys have been busy crafting for the Etsy shop that K decided to open.  
He came up with a name, a design and spent the past few days making many, many bookmarks 
(with his brother's help!)
I found these blank photo albums and they've been busy personalizing albums for different family members.  Next up, picking out photos to fill the pages.

field trip










The boys and I took a trip to the Vermont Institute of Natural Science on Friday.  It was the perfect day to do a bit of hiking (test out my healing foot!) and see all of the raptors they have!  Each of these birds can no longer live in the wild due to different injuries.  
VINS had interesting facts and the story of each bird--a very neat field trip!

around the farm













quilts in the sun
flowers on the porch
seedlings from this farm
bleeding hearts in bloom

clothes on the line

and the favorite place
