The two things that I assume are predictable about any farm are one, there’s going to be more work than a human can possible ever accomplish, and two, creatures of all shapes and sizes are going to take up residence whether we want them to or not. I know it’s been 12 days since I last posted an update. That’s because number one from above has been kicking our butts.

But I’ve been documenting everything. Creatures, flowers, plants, work, progress, demolition, you name it, I’ve got pictures. So instead of me waxing poetically or groaning on about this and that, I’m just going to share a bunch of pics and their blurbs. 🙂 Enjoy!

Creatures, bugs, and spiders amok!! We find at least ten of those webs and spiders each night at the farm and that’s just in the areas near the house, barn, and road. I shudder to think about how many are in the woods!

People, people, people … well, family but they count, right? Our daughter Morgan and her pet chicken, our son Zek taking shelter from the rain, and my sister Saen with Ophelia.

Just a couple of the things we’ve “unearthed” at the farm. The little oil can is my favorite I think but I love knowing that the previous owners took Organic Gardening magazine. This one is from 1979 (I think).

And a bit of building stuff. The pallet “bridge” we had to build over the pond that formed in front of the barn, the roof over the demo area on the house that we were sure would have fallen during the 5.6 earthquake, and the chicken tractor frame.
