Sunday, October 7, 2018 – Early Morning

I wanted to make a post yesterday, but was too busy.  I got some great pictures of the property, both in the morning of the sunrise and in the afternoon when there was a lovely rainbow to be seen.  However, I ran out of time. I’m also out of time this morning.  I have to…

Compost Gardening, Part ?

I don’t know how many posts I’ve made concerning our compost garden, but I’m happy to write that this weekend we finally got the compost put out for our compost garden. We even had enough to start working on a section that will be in the sunshine. We still need to put the wood chips…

Compost Garden Update

I could make a long, comical story about how tarried this project has been thus far, but I’ll keep it short.  We ordered the compost and wood chips in early March, because I knew that once May hit, I’d be too busy to be able to put too much time into creating this compost garden….

Why Am I Doing a Farm & Food Blog?

Why Am I Doing a Farm & Food Blog? I guess it starts with a 13-year old girl’s dream to be a pastry chef. (That’s me.) I was laughed at by a few people, and as impressionable as I was then, gave up on the idea fairly quickly.  Fast-forward about 6 years and you’ll find…

April Snow

We had the biggest snowfall of the season for us here at Laughing Thyme Farm.  I knew it was going to snow, because I keep an eye on the forecast.  However, the forecast had said several times this year that we were going to get a lot of snow.  We hadn’t gotten more than 1.5″…

Planning For A Yard Overhaul

We’ve got a huge project happening at our house this year, and it is starting soon. I don’t know how much we’ll actually get planted this year, as we’re using this year to build it up. #ediblelandscaping #notill#maybepermacultureish
