'Round Here Lately....

It's been a few weeks since I've posted an update on our little homestead - I'm way overdue!  I haven't blogged, but I have been taking pictures of something nearly everyday.  We have so many (awesome) projects going on here! 

The most exciting thing!?!?!?  We bought ourselves a fancy new rototiller, y'all!!  Jason couldn't wait to fire that thing up and get the garden all tilled.  We'll till again right before we get all of our goodies planted into the ground.


He also removed the fence we had up separating the perennial area from the garden.  This makes the garden SO much bigger!


Speaking of our little seeds - they are growing so well!  I've had to transfer quite a few of them to larger pots.  If the weather cooperates, we'll be planting the garden either this weekend or next!!! :)


I've also been doing lots of weeding.  This is in our perennial area and where we planted raspberry transplants that we took from my moms garden last fall.  Thankfully, most of them lived through the winter and are beginning to grow.  All the greenery against the lattice fence are wild black raspberries.  They're all over our property!  (Not that we're complaining!!)



Our mini orchard is looking great.  Our Montmorency cherry tree was in full bloom just over a week ago.  It was gorgeous!

A few of the other fruit trees have begun blooming as well.  I'm beyond excited for this area in a few years. 


The fire pit transformation is in its last stage!  Jason has removed alllllll of the wood and most of the sand.   He has transplanted a little bit of sod and will transplant more once we expand the garden.


We now have a horseshoe pit!  Jason built it up to true horseshoe regulations and we're looking forward to some warm nights by the fire with cold drinks, s'mores, and horseshoe throwing!  (A full blog post about this coming soon!)


Another huge ginormous monstrous project we have going on is our deck.  We had quite a few boards that needed replaced and Jason took care of those, but we still have to power wash, stain, and level out the deck.  But, it is so going to be worth it when the we get to enjoy the end result!


Well, I think that's all of the bigger projects we've got going on now.  Looking forward to another beautiful, productive Spring weekend in just a few days!!
