{Last week}
So, that's what we've all been up to...
Busy little bees,  I tell you there is never a dull moment around here.
As you can see, we have a good mixture of fruit trees,
and would you believe there has been even too much for us to eat so there has been loads of  preserving,
Fig Jam, Plum Paste and Apricot Sauce...
 The vegetable garden is started but a slow process,
the banging wall is up,
alongside the new Cubby!
there is always renovating going on,
 always a cup of tea around and always something baking in the oven,
The stock numbers are slowly increasing, the sheep that is, not the children!
At Christmas time we welcomed some furry friends, Floyd & Tilly to the family...
This is our first Winter here and it bring so many new experiences for us.
Two fire places keep us warm,
we are waiting for our first frost
and hoping that we may be sprinkled with a light fall of snow in the coming weeks.
Farm life is working wonderfully for us, we are right back in full swing again.


  1. What a lovely catch up of the last few months.
    You've been cheese making I see, how did it go. I'd love to try making it myself one day.

  2. I can't believe my eyes! It's so amazing! I live in a colder climate (Northern Europe), we can't grow figs or peaches here, so your pictures look very exotic and rich. A wonderful, wonderful post.

  3. WOW, well I can see why you haven't been blogging lately, beautiful photos!

  4. What lovely photos Karen - thanks for filling in the blanks for us. You certainly have been busy! Looks like you are having a great time on your new farm. cheers Wendy

  6. What a lovely place you have, Karen. All of those amazing fruit trees! I'm so envious. I'm just starting my orchard - all 3 trees of it!! Haha! Planning to add to it more over the next month. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, too. We have so much in common:) xx

  10. Hi! I have been away from the blogging world for way to long! Look at all that wonderful happiness :) Love the photos of what you have been up to, I think last time I read you were still in the little place in town I think it was after your move, how long have you been in the property? You must be loving being back out in the country with a bit of land! Glad to see everything has fallen into place for you and your beautiful family, Regards, Ruth (aka MrsW)
    Hope to catch you 'around' sometime
