Around the Homestead – De-stressed

Spent a toasty morning weeding at the farm with the heat index rising into triple digits. It’s exciting to see how quickly things grow this time of year. The beans I planted last week are already up! Picked some kale and carrots for this week…you know it’s getting juiced.

I’m still making ridiculous amounts of juice. I’ve been replacing 2 meals most days, saving one for making good use of my meat csa, veggie csa, and garden goodies.


This year’s garden is a good indicator of how much better things for me. For the last few years, I came home from work stressed, tired, and defeated and weeds ruled the yard. This year, I’m feeling great, my evenings suddenly feel long and productive, the garden is looking good, and I’m enjoying spending time working in it again 😍🌈 (but notice the rabbit in the middle of the yard disrespecting me)

That empty spot in my garden pic where spent spinach, radishes, and lettuce came out is already sprouting with carrots, beets, spinach, and kale. 🙂
