So, here I am after a 2 year hiatus (almost to the day). 

Cornish rock x roo 9 weeks old

What a better time to return to blogging than fall! It's been a good time off.

Onions and garlic drying on the north porch. 

This is my favorite time of year. The garden is over flowing, the animals are plump and ready for the freezer, fruit trees are heavy and dripping with apples and plums.....the perfect picture of the harvest months.....I wish! 

Yorkshire x gilt. She weighs almost #300!

This year we have had great successes and great failures like all homesteaders.

Provider green bush beans and Beefy Resilient Grex dry beans all drying down to use for seed in next year's garden.

The next several posts will highlight what has worked for us and what has been a failure. This is an important analysis for us in our constant pursuit of food security.
