Farm Update: April 2017

Nothing like a conversation with real farmers to remind you of how unrealistic your best intentions were… Ok, on re-reading that first sentence it sounds like these farmers are being awful. They aren’t. They are wonderful. It’s just that they completely understand the monumental amount of work we’ve taken on (because they live this life… Read more »

Farm Life – an update

It’s been a while since I’ve done a farm update. It’s been a while because we’ve had so much rain. SO much rain! I was at the Post Office the other day (Ok, quick clarification here – the ‘Post Office’ is also our general store/irrigation supply/take out food place where you catch up on anything happening… Read more »

Inundated – the word of the week

Inundated is my word of the week. I think it describes the last few weeks actually… You may have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet in blog land of late.

July week2: Our week and our garden

This week ‘everything’ finally fell into place. Our 130m driveway on our property was finished, the septic tank was dropped into its spot, the water tank area was leveled and the 3 bay shed started to get put up. The shed might not sound like much but we need it so we can connect power… Read more »

Collecting the Mail: My Favourite Time of Day

I know it sounds strange. It might help to explain that collecting the mail is about a fifteen minute round trip walk. But when we go as a family it can often take much longer. That’s because it is such a beautiful walk, even now when the trees have dropped all their leaves. We love… Read more »

For Everything There Is A Season

Sometimes it’s the simple things… One of the things I love most about living in a rural area is watching the seasons change. Seasons hold much more meaning in rural areas as so much depends on the weather. The trees that line the driveway are taking their cue from one of the trees at the… Read more »
