You guys, I am so technically challenged that I don’t even know how I still blog!
It took me only 2 million hours to figure out how to take, edit, and upload a video to YouTube… and it’s still looking like a Japanese beetle infested patch of bush beans (you can see I have pests on my mind this time of the year, LOL)
Anyway, one day I will figure it out, I promise. Until then you’ll have to do with nasty beans.
It is what it is, we garden organically around here…
Anyway, here is what’s going on at the farm…
But before you watch the video just know that we did all this weeks ago, before going to Israel, but I never got the chance to put it all together. So even though the video states “April” this work was done in February. When we got back from our visit a few weeks ago, we started spreading the manure in shavings on top of the beds and we are now planting like crazy people on steroids.
I’ll have another video about the planting process. Please make sure to head over to my YouTube channel and subscribe. I will be posting more on YouTube from now on and I will be happy if you come join me there!
Here we are spreading lime, tilling again, and building garden beds…
From having no room inside the house for even one shelving unit to having a whole room dedicated to starting seeds, I feel like a pretty lucky girl! We might have moved to a smaller house but I now have a seed starting room, I’ll give up a bedroom for that any day!
Here is where I start all of our seeds…
Back then, I didn’t care much about the tiny house. It was cool, don’t get me wrong, but I got an outhouse that day!
An actual outhouse! With a seat and all!
It was a dream come true (you can read about it here) and this outhouse is still standing at the farm to this day (see how we set it up here). We use it regularly and it is brilliant. Every time I use it I am amazed at how much it makes sense. And I am amazed that there is no smell at all.
… it’s OK if you think I am crazy, you are not the only one.
Anyway, last but not least, our goats. Since they won’t walk after us we settled on letting them roam around on their own for now.
The area that we are working on clearing is about an acre. My husband woke up one day and told me, “I am going to do some work with the tractor at the farm.”
“Adios,” I replied, and assumed he meant he was going to maintain roads and such… He ended up working for a good 8 hours straight and when I came to check on him I was shocked that an acre was pretty much clear!
There is more work to be done, of course. We got a burn permit so we can burn the big pile, then we have to flatten an area for the barn, build a barn and build a fence. We got most of the materials lined up, we just need to go get them and… well, build all this.
If you are bored, come over, please. We have enough work for about 70 people 🙂
But then I remind myself to take a deep breath and just enjoy all this because there really is nothing else I would prefer doing.
A lot of other things are new across the road at the house and around the house and I will try to make another update on that soon.
Please comment bellow and let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions.
And, by the way, all of my kids are still alive 😉
