Reappearing / Summer recap

Wow! It has been like 5 months since I last posted here. I feel like it all happened with the blink of an eye. I was mostly focused on growing a baby, resting a lot and working on the garden and green house. Of course, the last project went out of control by the time the baby arrived 4 weeks ago, but I got to savor the joys of gardening all summer long. We also got to work on another major project I'll tell you all about really soon. In the meantime, here's a recap of what summer was all about around here in our homesteading bubble-land.

We got to  camp at our house since I was feeling too heavy to go backpacking or camping for real. Even though O. got a new set of stove for cooking (which also charges your phone while cooking... pretty fancy) and a new camping mattress and sleeping bags, so I could be really comfortable camping with a big belly, it just didn't worked out at the end. It was fun though to pretend to be somewhere else while sleeping in the tent on the deck watching the stars at night, and cooking with minimal set up using little pieces of wood and matches. 

We grew an herb and flowers spiral in the front yard.

Lots of time at home to play with these two! 

And then along came Matia Zucchini. Someday I'll tell you his birth tale, a 50 hour labor story that started at home with the intentions of staying, but ended up at the hospital. Beautiful birth though, no regrets.

And then we came home and the green house was totally overgrown, and the cover ripped off by the wind and rain. Yikes!

Yet the starts I planted for our winter crop were showing off!

 Lots of tomatoes!!!

And here we are, at the beginning of a new season, enjoying Mr O's harvest dinner. 
Happy Friday!
