first fruits

I thought I would share with you the first semi-substantial harvest from our garden. Actually it is pretty meager considering the amount of these things we have still waiting to ripen on the vines.

I’m excited to use all but the huckleberry. I tried one. It was icky. It tasted like a weird bitter-ish tomato which I wasn’t expecting, and if I’m going to eat something that tastes like a tomato…I’ll just eat the tomatoes. What are the point of huckleberries? Does anyone know?

My apologies for the lack of posting this week. I’ve been slightly under the weather, Joe had 6 teeth extracted (4 wisdom teeth), and I really haven’t been on top of the photography like I should. Better luck next week. Happy weekending!

thursday thanks

Taking time to reflect on God’s goodness, no matter the circumstances.

Thanking God this week for:

  • restoring my computer to me!
  • the added blessing of a second goat in milk
  • fresh raw milk every day and homemade yogurt from said milk
  • learning new skills
  • the provision of food that is brought forth from the earth whose source isn’t the supermarket
  • cheap thrifted finds
  • a long afternoon nap for the little one
  • keeping me humble when I start to get a little self-righteous
  • my husband; without whom, my life would not be what it is. That he works so hard to make a reasonable place for our family and animals and that he challenges me to become more industrious, a harder worker, and a gentler wife, mother and woman.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God concerning you
