The weather has been getting warmer and we've been busy here preparing for summer. It is absolutely our favorite time of the year as pleasant, long days lead into slightly cooler nights, allowing us to work almost non-stop at building our garden and home.
It's amazing to reflect on how far we've come in such a short time here. A year ago the space that our garden is in now was barely tilled, we were still waiting for our compost to develop, and we hadn't had the time to start the majority of our plants from seed. In contrast, already this spring we have finished building the bulk of our raised beds, we've planted a ton of fruit trees and berries, and all the goats have started giving birth and producing milk.
