writings from a women-run modern homestead. 

adventures in intentional living, radical homemaking, finding meaningfulness in the mundane, and subverting the food systems that be to feed my family nourishing food from our bit of land.

July Homestead Update!

July Homestead Update!

Hi from my summer hiatus!

It has been a busy month since I have last posted anew, and I’m eager to be back and share what we have been up to. Life has been full of travel, connecting with loved ones, tackling projects, expanding our orchard, and managing the summer bounty that is abloom.

For all of you sweet souls asking what the heck is going on with us! - Here is a little (mostly photo) update of what life has been looking like with our fam, and the property, so far this summer. This consists of mostly lots of garden salsa! And pesto! Lucky us!
