Soggy and Beautiful


Thank you great grandma and grandpa!



Audrey loves anything from Klutz kid's crafts.  Thank you uncle aaron and aunt marin!


Super cool project!  Max is looking grown up.  


Hoop house prep for winter.  I always imagine tucking in the worms for winter.  A nice blanket of compost and mulch keeps them warm and working longer into the fall.  



The maple leaves look so pretty on the greenhouse.  It rains a lot in the fall so things are soggy instead of crispy.  I miss walking through the crunchy leaves. 


Last weekend we had a neighbor help us dig a 4 foot deep trench  from the shop water spigot all the way to the barn so we could lay a water line and frost free hydrant at the barn.  We also added an electrical line and internet cable.  It was a way bigger project than I imagined.  Farmer newbie.  


Looking up from the inside the greenhouse through the skylight.  : )

Fall Shenanigans


A sneak peak at costumes!




Audrey says "muffin heaven!"


Sight word practice


Popcorn that Clara grew


Clara's holding the book Audrey got for her birthday.  It is awesome!  The first thing she chose to make were the caramels below.  They are delicious.




Trying to start a burn pile after 3 weeks of rain is no easy task.  We should have covered part of it to keep it dry.  Homesteading lesson number:  4,587.  




Celebrating Audrey birthday.  She's 10!


Max turned 8!



Corey traveled to Idaho Falls for a work trip.  He brought a treat home to share!



We made him a treat as well.  Apple slab pie anyone?
