Farm Life

A Catch-Up Post in Pictures

Just a few things we’ve been doing and how our life is going over here at the farm.

Xi’s first Waldorf doll – Baby Xiola – made my moi!  I was so nervous about making this and it turned out to be so much fun!

Me and Xi at Grandma’s on Christmas Night.

J’s birthday cake and gifts the girls and I made for him.

Me modeling the homemade apron I did for J’s mom’s birthday.  It’s made from a vintage pillow case.

The gift bag I made for my dear friend Romy’s birthday present.

The girls and their friend Zack at the Trail of Lights right before Christmas.

Farmgirl on Chirstmas morning opening her gifts.

My Mother of Millions bloomed indoors.  The blossoms are so delicate looking.  Really pretty.
The garden looks like a graveyard at the moment.  Nothing really growing except the violets and a couple salvias.  Everything else is covered in leaf mulch and hopefully staying warm enough to come back with a vengence in Spring.  I do have poppy sprouts and larkspur that are doing great.  And the Brugmansia’s Tom sent me are doing great inside in pots.  We have had some pretty hard freezes, so things are indoors right now even though this week is a balmy 70 degrees…wierd weather.  I suspect we will be getting more freezes soon, so am not jumping on the “Spring is coming” kick..haha!  I do need to get my tomatoes started indoors this weekend…
Hope your week is good!  Peace!

  1. Your talents abound.

    It is soon going to be that time of year when I see and read on your blog the garden coming alive, and I'll sit here in my grey rain and dream of the months when our northern gardens begin to awaken. !!!!!

    Love the apron!

  2. Your handmade items are really exceptional.

    Do you really think it's time to start tomatoes indoors? Let us know what kinds of seeds you use and the variety of tomato plants. We've had oodles of rain and hail and I hope our newly planted fruit trees are unharmed by the wind. I'm going to venture outside and pick some mustard greens and kale…

  3. Love the Christmas night photo of you and xi!! And what a fun apron & gift bag 🙂 We're seeing our first blooms of Spring here – camilla, rhododendron and sweet box (the 2nd best smell in the world after lilac!). Just one more reason I love Seattle…spring in January!
