Squishing Ponies

Hello friends! In a happy turn, it looks like some of the garden that we thought was a goner is still with us!

Pretty exciting considering the hard battle it had toContinue reading “Squishing Ponies”

Just like on COPS

!! Trigger Warning for drunk driving, car wrecks, and drowned kohlrabi. May want to skip this one if that sounds like too much, I’ll be back to lighter content next week. !!

Tsch Tsch Tsch

Hello friends! What a week. I unfortunately got pretty sick again this week, but I think mostly due to the very long hours at work and the weather and pollen counts.

The Nerdy Owl is a Know-It-Owl

Hello friends!It’s very early in the morning. I’m awake because a hoot owl has taken to slowly circling the house and, unsurprisingly, hooting in the early morning hours.Its supremely unsettling.

Usually by May we’ve settled into a nice pattern of outdoor time after work and dinner on the porch, short sleeves and sunscreen. But this year it’s really felt lucky if we see moreContinue reading “Stormin’”

Mail Call

Hello friends!Joe got some fun mail today, and he’s incredibly excited about it. See, ever since he was a puppy Joe has loved toys, especially Kong safestix, but he’s hard on toys because he’s an aggressive chewer. I try really hard to make sure about the time the latest toy needs to be replaced, weContinue reading “Mail Call”

The Event of the Season

Trigger warnings: vet stuff, needles, vaccinations, minor injuries, general farm medical dramas Hello friends!  It was farm call day last week, where all the critters on the farm that can get vaccinated, do.  This one was definitely a little rougher than the others, not going to lie. But it all worked out in the end.Continue reading “The Event of the Season”

Everyone Loves a Good Back Porch

Hello friends!Its officially work outside season, which is, of course, the best thing ever.Not only is there actual outside work to be done (like redoing the gardens) there’s also just “work that can be done outside”. Luckily, I can usually swing a couple hours outside with my work laptop before the battery starts screaming. It’sContinue reading “Everyone Loves a Good Back Porch”
