Moving back to the farm has been so great for this family. All the convenience and ease of life we sought moving into the city was a huge let down. We are starting up our life again here. The simple and quiet rhythm here is truly what our hearts long for.
The city was convenient, but here is restful.
The first order of business is preparing the garden for a bountiful crop. Our garden has rested since the great hailstorm of 2014.
My soul is longing for black compost under my nails, dirt on my face and a famer’s tan. The glorious smell of fresh cut basil and bees buzzing around and pollinating the food that will be set upon our table is the kind of therapy I thrive in.
I have realized through these videos that I have so much the learn about gardening. I think this year is the most researched and planned out growing seasons we’ve had. I mean I am over-flowing with information and am eager to start putting to practice new-to-me principles.
There is something so exhilarating about the first little sprouts pushing through the dark soil and stretching for the sun. Every time I witness this miracle of life I am in awe.
In addition to the garden in its beginnings, we just received our baby chicks! This time around we ordered Easter Eggers and Welsummers from Meyer Hatchery.
They are all being loved on by this family.
Is there anything sweeter than a baby chick chirping and scratching and learning to forage?
Well, perhaps a tiny anything is the most adorable ever.
There are many more dreams and plans being made here. I can’t wait to share them with you.
What are you dreaming of?
