Souvenirs + vegetables

upon this day...

the sounds of farm life here are now of a 'new to us' tractor... Jason cannot work the farm by hand like he used to... he knows this... and we don't know the first thing about having Jordan (the horse) pull any implement, and so happy to say, this little blue beauty is now hard (and I mean hard) at work here...

dare I tell you in advance that the size of garden we are putting in is most likely going to cause me to have many more hours than i even imagine planting, weeding (oh the weeding), but able to bring more to the local restaurants, our family, and in storage... eating all the organic vegetables we want... (and there is a slight possibility that this excitement is also because the corn crib is going to be my potting shed/studio... just a slight possibility...)

the girls and i tried our hands at making 'Carnitas' and then the next day using that pork, 'Tamales'

enough to feed this hungry army... and pretty much the whole town nearby...

as the night falls, the three candles are lit and this little farmhouse is glowing

i even found time to knit and cuddle and listen to tales of old...

xo + advent blessings,

beauty, family, farm, Garden, happy, house, life, time, and more:
