Two inches of rain makes for a gorgeous reflection pond on our newly poured cement pad, future home of our farm operations.
It's a chilly, blustery evening cooking outside on propane because the power is out. Reminiscing about the last two seasons farming in Ontario without electricity and cooking like this every night...though my right burner has obviously gone a bit wobbly since then;)
On the left, a pile of freshly delivered soil, on the right a pile of greenhouse pieces waiting to be assembled, and in the middle, a pup who thinks very highly of himself.
Thankful for the autumn sunshine.
I'm lucky to have a partner who will wake me up int the middle of the night to go look at the sky. #kootenaysky #northernlights
When you buy a used greenhouse it's super helpful to have a dad with a flatbed tow truck, especially when you have to go back for the stove. Thanks Dad!
Jasper diligently guards the construction site.
September is my favourite month at the farmers' market.
Scott's ready to start pounding some posts in a serious way. Three acres of deer fence are no match for this man and his hand held 4-stroke vibrating honda motor.

Smoky beach evenings in the kootenays.
This hot, hazy day calls for a special happy hour treat. Thanks for the shishito peppers @stone_meadow_flowers !
With no proper barn this year, we're hanging our garlic a little bit everywhere, including out front of our bedroom window.
Before Scott even came in the door after work, he had his shirt off, the mail ripped open (new axel extensions for the BCS) and was halfway through the installation. What a nerd.
Across the river and up the mountain we can see our little farmstead. #farmthekootenays
Scott and I are missing going to the Saturday farmers' markets this year, but it is also nice to be able to get out for a hike and little huckleberry pick.
How much garlic can you fit in a Matrix?
I grew up in an intentional community that shares weekly meals together and this is the first time that I'm hosting the meal myself! Creamy asparagus and potato galette lots of veg from the Wednesday farmers' market. A perfect way to spend the longest day. #farmersmarket #happysolstice #backinthekoots
