It’s been a while since we’ve made a video so we thought it would be fun to do a video on what our life is like now that I’m working full time. It’s been quite an adjustment for all of us, but so far we’ve fallen into a good routine. This is a typical week day. Weekends are a little different because we focus more on projects and maintenance on the homestead.
It’s been a while since we’ve made a video. We want you to know we aren’t quitting homesteading or youtube, We’ve just had some changes in our life that we’re having to adjust to, so we’ll have fewer videos for a while. Hope you’ll stick with us until we’re able to have a more consistent schedule again.
Normally every time we try to grow pumpkins they get taken down by vine borers and squash bugs. This year I’m happy to say that we defeated them and ended up with some small, cute pumpkins! Speaking of cute things, we went to the bunny barn to check in with the rabbits. Miley is wanting to breed one of her bunnies so that she has some older ones to show next year, but the bunnies had other ideas…
Rotten mulberries, a wasp, an imposter lady bug, the sound of rain on a sunny day, mulberry stains on the forehead, randomness and giggles… Ya know, the simple, good stuff of life…that’s what you get when you send the kids to pick mulberries.
The mulberries and black raspberries are ready to pick! What did we make with them? Well… you’ll just have to watch!
Those boots…they’re well loved.
It’s just another day on the homestead, trying to get the garden in and we have an extra special surprise….
Sunshine, blue skies, happy animals, plants, shovels, dirt, smiles, laughter, too many lettuce plants… ya know, all the stuff that brings homestead happiness….
A missing cat, pregnant goats, a snowball fight… it’s another day on the homestead but this time it’s hard to be happy when a special pet goes missing. Luckily it ends happily so you’ll want to stick around to the end because you won’t want to miss this emotion filled reunion.
Just all of the simple joys playing in the snow with your big brother can bring.
Just a little walk a round the homestead to capture some of the beauty on this cold, blustery winter day.
I have an hour before I need to start fixing supper so I decided to get 3 things done that I’ve been putting off. One of those is dealing with the eggs I stored for winter, and if you’d like to know how that experiment turned out… well you’ll just have to watch….
It’s Halloween, one of Miley’s favorite times! She’s getting her chores done quickly so she can enjoy the rest of the day, but as you know, there’s never a dull moment on the homestead so chores didn’t go as quickly as she planned!
My mom rooted some tomato clippings and shared some with me. I’m planting them and experimenting with growing them through the winter. Experimenting in the garden is fun!
