Okay. Some of you have been asking for pictures of our new life down here on the farm...so... I'll show you around outside, first. (Here--grab this can of OFF! cuz you're gonna need it as you walk around.) :)
(Click to enlarge if your computer can handle huge photos. I had to upload them a whole other way and I barely figured out what I was doing... but you'll feel like you're practically here if you view them full-size.)
The view outside the kitchen window--our marsh is on the left, the meadow is beyond the break in the trees. In the chicken yard on the right I want to plant flowers and put in wood slat walkways.
The meadow, land of garter snakes, frogs and mosquitos. But I love it's quietness and I hope to make a stone floor out there then place a screened gazebo over it.
The window side of the barn and the chicken yard at the back corner. The back pasture runs behind the barn.
My garden space on the other side of the barn, the nifty compost frame and beyond the garden is our 'grape orchard.'
The amazing crab apple tree outside our dining room bay windows.
Birch trees outside our bathroom window.
Our driveway. The young apple/pear/peach orchard runs along the other side of it.
