Learning the homestead life in a digital world.

Bad part of living in the country? Mice got into my pantry and ripped open a ton of food. Good part of living in the country? We decided to get these boys to keep the mice away from the house. They are so sweet. One came to us extremely underweight but he’s quickly catching up!

Unfortunately #veterinary care is part of animals on a #homestead.  Jack, the new kitten needed some bloodwork and supportive care from the stress of his rescue.  He should be ok and I'm so grateful for the love and care of good animal vets.

A fast moving #summer storm blew through this #evening, bringing a #rainbow over the house, #chickens and #garden with super high contrast in the setting sun!

I let the weeds take over the pumpkin patch and it didn’t do very well this year. Next year I think I’ll try it with weed fabric and see if that helps. The vine all died so we picked the pumpkins. One less thing to water

Loooong shadows walking to the barn to tackle a few days around the #homestead. Wayne took the week off of work and my #staycation? Mowing, weed whacking, and long delayed chores. He's Actually looking forward to it!

The garden gave us lots of cucumbers this year, but never all at once. I was hoping to can a bunch of pickles, but instead I learned how to make refrigerator pickles 🙂 yum!

Knocked out the first acre of field cleanup with my new @kubotausa #L3901. Picked it up from Kansas over the weekend. Inventory is thin but lots of work waiting for this thing!
