shots on the new plot

Still making the beds in the garden, putting sawdust on the paths.

Large boulders protrude & create natural steps.

Our shop/home & J's work trailer viewed from the garden.

dome greenhouse & hoophouse

The hen who hangs with me, I call her 'Kitchen Chicken' since she pecks about my outdoor kitchen looking for a scrap (& I indulge her).

Awesome kitchen this summer, with a floor I dont have to sweep or wash.

starting anew

(watercolour & ink by M)
We have completed our move from the old farm to a village on the lake, about 10 mins north.  Now we are living in a shop (& mostly outdoors) on our plot while the house is built.
It feels great to be here.

A little walk with my littlest guy...
watching the osprey, admiring the lupines & picking wild asparagus.

Ahhh, love the left over breakfast grain (millet or oats) turning into snack time, with the addition of 2 eggs, a big splash of milk, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, stevia, maybe bananas or raisins, poured into the cast iron pan at 375 for maybe 40 mins, til brown.
