The arrival of Fall brings a lot of things with it on a farm. Homeschooling started again, there’s been plenty of harvesting and preserving of food (recipes of which will be shared soon). We’ve also been getting a lot of those projects done that were put off during the summer, but that need to be finished before winter. In our spare time, however, we have picked up a new hobby – building pallet furniture! It’s this thing I’m sure you haven’t heard of yet (ahem), but it is so much fun and it fits so perfectly with our ideas of living a self-sustaining life. It has also been a great way to introduce our boys into working with their hands and power tools, because what male (or female in this case) doesn’t like to use power tools. There will be pictures coming soon!
All of the busyness living on a farm brings plus the two other companies our family runs has left this girl (and the family) exhausted! I decided yesterday evening I was going to enjoy the beautiful weather and wander around to get some pictures to share with you.
I could seriously sit and watch the chickens for hours. They are very quirky, funny creatures.
Important conversations and lots of planning happen in the barn.
Projects mean lots of tractor driving, but who’s complaining?
This one, just because I like the view.
And this one of my baby with his chicken, Featherfoot. We call him our chicken whisperer.
