A Year At The Wallow
|November 2, 2010||Posted by Issa under Homesteading|
Joshua and I moved into the Wallow sometime in October 2009, so it’s just now been one year here. I was driving up to the house the other day and thinking to myself how much I still love it. I’m prone to boredom and used to moving around a lot. It’s easy for me to fall in love with a place and just as easy for me to lose interest. The Wallow still delights me every single day, though, in every single way. Here’s a look at the seasons of the last year from around the Wallow.
When we moved in in the fall of 2009, the place had been unoccupied for a couple of years and was quite overgrown!
But Joshua turned out to LOVE mowing, so that was over pretty quickly.
Here’s me seeding the field, turning it into pasture for the pigs we would get in the spring:
And I spent a lot of time those first couple of months marveling at all the little bits of nature I could find:
A beautiful view of winter out the west side of the house:
And then the full bloom of spring 2010:
Spring brought Hampie and Yorkie to us, too, who were just tiny little pigs in March.
In July we got the chickens:
And by July the pigs were BIG!
I’ve taken my hammock down for the winter, but added an iron daybed to the porch instead, for breezy fall napping (picture stolen from Joshua, here):
It’s definitely fall again, a whole year gone by at the Wallow. It’s been a fantastic year, and I’m ready to start another one.
