We’re still in the process of getting our house move-in ready, but it’s always a treat to go visit the land we’ll soon be living with.
Without any input at all there are many strawberry blossoms!
And I’ve begun to plant some herbs in the garden. Several have come as transplants from my Mom’s garden, like this lady’s mantle.
Others have come from local plant sales such as this echinacea.
We’re working on getting the existing kitchen garden in better shape while we dream of herb spirals, hugelkultur, and keyhole gardens.
We need to start trapping carbon in this soil!
We’re beginning to learn the plants that already live here. I fell in love with the spirit of this tree as soon as I approached it. This old oak has seen a lot of comings and goings on this land and I know it will be teaching me a lot.
I’ve begun taking a lot of “before” pictures. It’s hard (but exciting!) to imagine what our “after” pictures will look like in 5, 10, 30+ years…
Quite an exciting adventure!
Christine, this land is heavenly! I’m looking forward to hearing about your new adventures here,
Thank you! I am so excited to share this space with everyone. 🙂
What a beautiful piece of land. I would be snpping before, dureing, any day, any way pictures! LOL!
Thank you! And you’re right — this place is worthy of photos at any time of day!!
This looks like heaven on earth to me, especially since I live in a camper trailer in a KOA campground. So I will be living vicariously through your posts. You are truly blessed. Looking forward to all your posts…
I am delighted to have you follow along! I’m glad you’re inspired by what we’re doing. Maybe you could come visit sometime!
There is nothing I would enjoy more.
Lovely to be starting on a new place. Wishing you the best of luck and happiness in your new home.
