More Savings!

We are jumping from the Nursery Stash to more savings! My father was able to find time to dig the cistern hole and finally get it into place by the well. This plastic cistern was found locally off of a friend for $500 which is about a third of the typical cost of a similar one. This…

Nursery Stash

  I hope you enjoyed Full Steam ahead! Over the weekend Luke and I went to some nearby nurseries and accumulated more wonderful plants for my property. The way I see it if I continue to make small purchases here and there it won’t seem like such a burden on the check book when the landscaping and…

Full Steam ahead!

Last week I did some slight prep work for next years garden by Prepping for Pumpkins. But this week I get to peer out onto the mostly empty garden and dream about what is to come next year. What a relaxing way to spend a Sunday morning by burning my first fire in the pit Luke…

Prepping for Pumpkins

Though last weeks’ post Interior Design was fun but this week is a different kind of fun! 1. Cut 2. Gut 3. Rinse 4. Dry Pumpkins are hungry hippos in the garden and need to be watered regularly and well furtilized. They pretty much go against everything I stand for in a lazy gardener’s garden. That being…

Interior Design

Last week was all about Gratitude as I begin wrapping up some of the necessary pieces to the home and how the community support has assisted in progressing this journey further! I am beginning the process of wrapping up my color pallets and really diving into the interior design of my cabin. I want the colors to…

Gratitude

1 Thessalonians 5:18 18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Previously on Homesteading with a view was my post Continued Last Minute Fall Gardening where I discussed some of the fall projects for the garden outside as well as outside. I have been continuously blessed by the…

Continued Last Minute Fall Gardening

If you missed last weeks comic relief be sure to check out the post Put your britches on! As the trees continue to drop their leaves things begin to wrap up on the property. I know I said I had put the garden to rest but I enjoy digging in the dirt to much to…

Put your britches on!

My friend Jamie was caught with her pants down in the outhouse; and Johnny is so embarrassed he had to cover his eyes! Last week I mentioned Opportunity Knocked, So I Answered and this week is a little less about business. Sometimes it is all work and no play on the homestead. Luckily not today! I love…

Opportunity Knocked, So I Answered

I hope you enjoyed my previous post The Bees Knees, if you missed out somehow make sure to take a peak after reading this post. During an evening of roaming the great wide internet I stumbled upon an interesting website. This website described itself as something similar to Airbnb but with a wonderful twist. Hipcamp is…

The Bees Knees

Hunting season in the Love Shack! was enjoyable and quiet. This week I will be enlightening you on a new adventure! The wonderful world of bee keeping. My boyfriend and I recently took up bee keeping (so learn from our mistakes! ;p ) . I have wanted to be a bee keeper for several years now and…
