New Beginings!

It’s been such a long time since we’ve last written, time spent making decisions! After searching for my path to being financially independant, I began to realize that I crave being hands on with plants. As nerdy as I am and as much as I love DIY projects, those writing paths were not sustainable. I…

Gardens of 2018 Phase One Installations

With so many projects going on at once, I was determined this weekend and earlier this week to complete some and check them off our list. That consisted of finally redoing the herb garden, putting our complete vegetable garden in the ground, and getting rid of the huge bush in our front yard. Sitting down…

'Why would they do that?' - and other midweek ramblings #PrimroseCreations #lovethelifeyoulive #garden

‘Why would they do that?’ – and other midweek ramblings

One thing I have a love/hate relationship with is looking at something and wondering why someone did what they did. For instance, neither of our bathrooms have electrical outlets. Who doesn’t have outlets in their bathroom? It makes some grooming activities a bit complicated to accomplish for the time being. We’ve had quite a number…

A tragedy turned into a lesson on chicken safety

A tragedy turned into a lesson on chicken safety

Tragedy struck at our home yesterday. A really sad tragedy. Our chickens have been free range since we moved. We’ve allowed them out during the day and have always made sure they were safely back in their coop every evening or when we left for long periods of time. Our intention has always been to build…

A moment of reflection: what a hike can reveal

A moment of reflection: what a hike can reveal

It’s hiking season! That’s what I keep telling myself even though I don’t see it being a thing for a few more weeks. I haven’t been on a hike since I found out I was pregnant in September 2016. Last season flew by and now we have the pleasure of being outside every day possible…

Growing season preparations have begun

It may be surprising the learn that I’m still new to the world of growing things. Although I have a degree in Environmental Science, I’m much more comfortable with wildlife and ecosystem interpretations and manipulations. Keeping plants alive from seed has never been my strong point. That being said, I am determined to learn all…

Kickstarter Has Done It Again: Weed Snatcher

Just when I thought life couldn’t get any more crazy!

Two and a half weeks ago our whole world changed. In the best way imaginable! Although Chris and I have a blended family, just bought our first home together, and had talked about getting married ‘one of these days,’ I still felt it wasn’t something that would happen within the next year. Boy, was I…
