Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

How about the easy knitting blanket? It's size alone might attract people's attention to the booth! I'm quickly trying to finish a capelet/shawl for my daughter - I'm heading to the fair also and the temps that they're calling for would be perfect for it.

I can't take all of the credit for the squash tunnel - I saw it on another blog and thought it was a great idea. I'm so glad that we did it because it is perfect for growing crops like this that take up so much space.

There are a couple community gardens in our area, several of which are located near the university, which is great for people that are just here temporarily and renting housing, but still want to garden.

I thought that the little babe needed a little adventure, so I told her to bring her bike for a secret trip. We didn't have to go far, just up the street to the park that sits at the edge of the woods and fields. There is a new bike... Continue reading

So it turns out that despite repeated attacks by the groundhog, my little babe is going to have at least one orange pumpkin and there are several more in various stages of growth. We also have a mysterious squash vine that was a volunteer from the compost pile. From its... Continue reading
