Outdoor activities have slowed down significantly over the past few weeks. Several days after the green beans were picked, we went in to clear the Three Sisters Garden. We found another gallon of green beans. I processed 16 pints of green beans from the… Continue Reading “MORE PREP FOR WINTER”


We’re about halfway through the summer growing season so I thought I’d take a break from peaches and share how my gardens are doing. THREE SISTERS GARDEN OTHER GARDEN AREAS They aren’t pictured here but the herb garden, apple trees, and boysenberries are doing… Continue Reading “GARDEN TOUR”


We had two magical and exciting things happen on the homestead this week. First, firefly season began! I love seeing fireflies. No, I never converted over to the Southern moniker: lightning bugs. I held on to “Firefly” because the word just sounds as magical… Continue Reading “MAGIC”
