homecoming 2014

Today we went out to the Farm for the first time since before we left town for our working honeymoon. The dirt road was packed with ice and slush, and the driveway up to the trailer was completely impassable to the vehicles at our disposal.

We can’t move in yet – need to wait a week or two until things thaw out a bit more – but we wanted to connect with the place, check on things, and get the place & ourselves a little more ready.

the support beams we added before leaving succeeded in keeping the processing tent upright, despite the heavy snows.

After a few hours, we left with wet socks and chilly feet … incredibly excited to return to stay … !

    1. Yep, both of them are kept in working order by Kristin’s dad. (We seldom use them, mainly to till the field, and move the trailer.)
