When someone asks me why we renovated an old 1906 farmhouse, I always say, "it's not the house, it's the life you live inside the house". Moving from our new custom-built contemporary home to an old house in the country was a welcome lifestyle change and a return to simpler times. Here you'll learn about our farmhouse renovation, gardening, critters, recipes, photo albums from vacations, and even some silliness to help you escape from a hectic day. Come and browse. I hope you enjoy yourself!
Today I made a trip to Burr Oak Greenhouses in Somers, Wisconsin. The Birchell family, one of the early pioneer families of our township, has a wonderful selection of vegetables and flowers. I restrained myself, buying only herbs and vegetables. As if I didn't buy enough, I stopped at Stein Garden Center too, just in case I missed something. And I was right. I needed carrot seed. :)
Ta Da!!!! My new vegetable and herb garden has been planted. Success!
Well........the day is over and it is time for dinner. Hope you like my little video.
