This farm-year has passed in a hurry…. lots of events,less good ones,¬†better ones and really good ones.

After one year of living on this farm I know, that we have some abundance: lots of stones… lots of so called weeds… lots of wild apple trees with good apples (for juice and jelly!)…lots of cedar wood to be ‘harvested’ (for building fences and sheds)… lots of potential (for hay, and animals grazing)… and looooots of work…

Left over from this year’s harvest are: jars with apple jelly, grape jelly, ¬†apple sauce, bottles with dandelion wine and hawthorn wine, dried herbs, pesto in ice cubes, baskets full of potatoes, red, purple and white, a big basket with garlic, baskets full of butternut pumpkins, and red and white cabbage… and, oh yeah, there is a lamb in the freezer (we still need to decide if we’ll eat our own animals, or if we better become vegetarians again…)

And there are lots of pictures I have taken!
