Half-way there now…new pond coming soon and it is filling-up almost as quickly as we dig it, which is perfect!



Wordless Wednesday – This is what I did on the weekend…

The snow came again…a lot! Very grateful that we didn’t have to shovel it all by hand! Poor Phil looked after the roof raking, which is always exciting!





Let it snow…?

Hmmm…from Friday afternoon when I could see a few patches of grass and was getting excited to start thinking about gardening…to Sunday morning…after receiving more than a foot of snow!

Poor Petunia the Pig is most certainly not impressed. Short legs make for an unpleasant walk through all of this fluffy stuff. Looks like I will be plowing some pig paths shortly…and the driveway!

The chickens don’t seem to mind it too much, although I suspect that they will hang out inside their coop for most of the day.

Well…a the farmers often say…we need the moisture….

Happy snowy Sunday all!


Horses or Tractors…what do you think?

Another great post from Heritage Breed Farms. Definitely worth checking-out their excellent blog too!


Definitely a tough call….
I think in the end, at least for now with the limited time that I have available for homesteading activities, that I will have to stick with tractor…..
