We've had a very busy year so far!  Lots of projects on the homestead to complete in addition to caring for our garlic.  

This years garlic was excellent!  Due to high demand and expansion, we only have limited quantities.  We're still processing, but we've op...

The demand for our garlic is insatiable.  We literally can't grow enough on our land to meet demand. We're already talking about 2020 sales with customers!

Finally!  I found some time to update the blog!  My original goal was to make a few blog entries a week, but that obviously petered out.  When folks say homestead life is busy, that's an understatement.  2017 was probably the busiest year we've ever had.....in our enti...

Once again, I find myself struggling to set aside time to write in the blog!  There's much time pacing between each posts; for that I apologize.  One resource I'm finding there is always a shortage is time.  While we're accomplishing so much every day here, it seems li...

Spring started slowly, then just paused altogether.  The weather hasn't been favorable for the most part.  Rainy days out number the sunny days by a margin of 3-to-1.  When that sun comes out for a few hours, you can bet there's a flurry of activity to get all the task...

Eventually the weather will turn in our favor.  That's what I've been telling myself anyway.  This winter and spring, the area has seen more moisture than a man taking a bath while in a  hurricane!  The old timers say they've never seen it this bad.  Our corner of the...

It's about time!  Spring has arrived....nearly to the exact day; 20 March 2017.  The past week we've seen above freezing daily tempera
