Moments in life of a couple of dog-loving, cat-serving, bee-keeping homesteaders trying to make a go on a scrappy little north woods hillside farm.

My garden tonight. Didn’t get everything done today. Can you tell which bed is full of sensitive babies? Hint- they’re having a fort party tonight to avoid a potential frost. 💨❄️💨❄️💨❄️ #firstfrost #hurryup #harvestallthethings #garden #frostsensitive #solanacea #tomatoes #eggplant #cayenne #polebeans #scarletrunner #limabeans #herbs #protection #mke #farmher

First time pressing apple cider. Our press is over 100 years old and produces a nice cloudy cider. Through this process I have learned that if we scale this up at all, like for sale, we will need a new-fangled press. My output was 10 quarts of three different varieties. I am fascinated by the variance in color between Apple varieties, each one being very unique. #delicious #purdy #applecider #cider #wintertreat #oldtrees #northernwisconsin #oldpress #oldpresser #enterprise #castiron #cuisinart #eatlocal #harvestallthethings #preserveallthethings #homegrown @centuryfarmer 😉

Saw these today while hiking with my dogs. Reminds me how I will never get to see that goofy smile or eat a delicious meal that you made just for me. You will be missed my friend. #restinpeace #addison #gonetoosoon #reachoutforhelp #dontsufferalone

I am in complete awe. Last week I found evidence of a Tomato Hornworm defoliating my plants. I located and dispatched with him (not recommended as they are large finger sized and juicy). Since then I have been monitoring the tomato plants and today was rewarded for my efforts with this beauty- a hornworm being parasitized by Braconid Wasps. Even though this is a great thing to find in an organic garden, evidence of a healthy ecological balance, I can’t help but feel for the tomato leaf munching critter, for this will ensure his demise less swiftly then what I could provide (I mean one day you’re just cruising along eating your favorite salad, and the next thing you know you’ve got a hundred pupating wasps implanted and sucking on your back). These wasps will hatch and then I can rest assured knowing that the hornworms are being managed without me, because they will seek out their next host. Wait until I get photos of what happens when I squish the Cabbage worms on the Kale. #nature #naturalworld #tomato #tomatohornworm #braconidwasp #wasp #parasite #organic #organicgardener #frass #defoliation #ecologicalbalance #awe #bugsarecool #bugs #insects #beinnatureeveryday #bigproudmomentasagardener

Raised by an artist (Mom) and a musician (Dad) has given my life such richness and depth and appreciation of the arts. Mom worked in stained glass for a time and this piece speaks very deeply to me. When Dad said that it could live at my house, I felt like I hit the lottery. Thanks Mom and Dad, for this and for so much more. #missyoumom #raisedbyartists #luckykid #art #stainedglass #handmade #madewithlove #edgarslookout

Y’all, I cannot lie, the yum factor up in this mug is on point. There’s a fresh chicken with compound herb butter roasting alongside a couple of baked potatoes in the oven. #rosemary #oregano #parsley #sage #tarragon #pangravy #strawberry pudding pie #freshguacamole #appetizer #rawveggiesontheside #growyourown #feedyoself #supportlocalfarmers #westallisfarmersmarket #poorolive
