Logging has Begun


Our Charlie Brown tree  : )


Clara's not much compared to this pile.


Standing on the stumps from what used to be the area where an old tree house was.





The Landing


The amazing thing is called a feller buncher, I think that's how it's spelled.


The area around the shop is so dramatic.   There were huge cedars right next to it, swayed to it.  It's going to take some adjusting to get used to the change.  




Orange rolls for Thanksgiving!  Thanks for sharing Susan!


Home-grown, mostly non-GMO, happy pigs make super tasty bacon.  


Love these kids!  

Snow!


Our first fresh cut tree!







350 pounds-ish of farm fresh, home-grown, non-gmo pork!  Anyone wanna come for breakfast?




And a box of pig fat to render into lard...now to figure out how to do that.


Audrey made this giant dessert cookie to share with the teachers during conference week.

Sun in November


Hi from Remus!  Our huge puppy is on track to being comparable to Lena's size, my sis-in-law's great dane.  I didn't know we were bringing home a GIANT dog, just a biggish one.  Oh well, he's pretty nice.  


I'm amazed that my geraniums have been outside every night except 2 this fall.  


So my camera phone is poo but can you see that bright yellow tree just to the left of the middle?  It's a larch or tamarack depending on who you're talking to.  A deciduous pine.  We have a whole bunch of lovely ones in our forest.  






I spy....a MOOSE!  There are actually two but I can't see the calf either.  These two have been hanging around a little too much lately.
