The Garden 2018

Tomatoes, Bell Pepper, Potatoes, Corn, Carrots, Green Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Radishes, Cucumbers, Onions, Zucchini, Pumpkins, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Lettuce, Rhubarb




















Cora, You Never Cease To Amaze Me

Cora, today had its ups and downs. But it ended on a real high note. You suggested we just ‘put a dinner together’ and proceeded to the cabinet and grabbed Goldfish crackers and nuts. I exclaimed, ‘No no no, you’ve had absolutely enough carbs and junk today, you need vegetables!’.

Mind you I had no idea what we would eat that would make everyone happy that would get enough veggies in. Lucky for all of us, Cora had just harvested some kale and chard, and I some tomatoes (and both kids had gotten the pumpkins!). Cora saw that and immediately thought to make a salad. She grabbed the santoku knife, and started in on the kale and tomatoes (she scared me with the tomatoes but did em safely anyway).

She asked about other veggies we might have (remembering what we had eaten the day before) and I rummaged in the fridge, pulling out cabbage and celery. That girl proceeded to whip up a mean salad that EVERYONE in the family enjoyed.

Here are the fall crops we recently harvested.

Fall 2017 Late Harvest


A new hitchin’ post

We said it would be a while before we owned a home again. And well, we lied. We’ve gone and bought a house in Seattle. Something about putting down roots, I think. Targeting a move-in date sometime next month, we’re busy beavers getting things ready to move. Here’s a taste of what we’re getting into:WP_20140715_001


Ha ha, just kidding, we’re not moving to a house on a lake. Give us a few years though, it sure is an attractive idea after living so close to water, this town makes you really want to.


Here are some pictures for real.

We have to get some things fixed in the house before we move in, so we’ll share more photos later, but the house is officially ours as of July 22, and the job of ownership has already begun with yard work and spending money. The house is near Seward Park with a big playground, swimming area and tons of hiking and outdoor activities.
