A poppy!! One of my favorite flowers.


Medicinal herbal sun tea.

I have been working on making the fruit trees more resilient.  I added cardboard, compost and some wood chips.

Ah, the late nights began here.  I am sad I didn’t stop to get photos of us with Nicholas Ferguson.  This was the evening of July 4th and we sat on the porch and talked until midnight.  The view was stunning and the conversation was wonderful.

I made quiche for breakfast and then we took Nick to Sleeping Bear Dunes so he could see the dunes and Lake Michigan.  We walked the shores looking for cool rocks and had lots of long conversations.  Nick also gave us some great ideas for our land as we move forward, build and start putting livestock on it.

Nick helping others put up trellises up at Baker’s Green Acres Thursday before the conference on Friday.  I helped get things cleaned up by cleaning of course!

My little tent and home for four days. Of course due to my food issues I had to bring all my food with me.

Nick teaching.  If you would like to see the video Baker’s will have it up on their site after it is edited.

This is tree hay for animals,  not pot…lol

Morning view. So beautiful.  I did hear the dogs take off after coyotes in the night. They are such great livestock guardians.

Free range Thanksgiving dinner roaming around.

This is Louie, he’s a big, big boy… He is also super sweet unless you’re a coyote or after the livestock.

Fog on the second morning…it was so beautiful.  We stayed up so late each night talking around the fire.


I can’t even tell you how much fun I had, how much I learned and how thankful I am that Nick made the journey this far north.  I learned so much and I can’t wait to implement it all.
