    I personally love Rural areas, old farm houses, barns, fields with miles of fence. I love visiting my great uncles farm in Dauphin, MB during the summers. Nothing better than waking up to a country breakfast in the morning before you work in the field.
    Thanks--and yours doesn't look too shabby either!

    I agree--there's nothing quite like a landscape of mixed agricultural and wooded terrain to gladen the northern heart.

    As for the garden--the early season stuff is pretty much gone by now: peas, spinach and lettuce in particular. The late summer items are now really starting to come into their own: beans, squashes, corn, carrots and we've even "robbed" the potato plants a couple of times. There's nothing like a freshly dug potato. Must be the Irish in me.

    Thanks, I'm thinking about expanding both next season, it depends on how much extra time I'd have to work them. I would like to start growing sunflowers next season aswell. I guess we'll see how that works out

    I'm with you 110% on that

    Have you ever grown Rubarb? It makes good Jam and Pie I was thinking about trying to grow some Black Currants so I could make my own juice from it. That's something I'll have to take a bit of time looking into.

    What a lovely house and garden, Allenson.
    I've been outside brushing up the early autumn leaf drop, my house is surrounded by trees, so it becomes a daily chore in October. At the moment I'm trying to keep the squirrels ( which I adore) away from my apple trees.
    I don't have any recent pictures but I'll take some soon.

    One is of the vegetable garden and two are of the house (& barn in one) that show some of the perennial gardens (though give them no justice really!)....

    I apologize for the low resolution of the photos....but it's our little cottage on the hill.

    Rhubarb? Oh when we were kids (in Scotland,) it was the custom to be given a stick of rhubarb and a brown paper bag full of sugar to dip it into, no wonder we're the most sweet toothed in the UK.

    I'm also a fan of a home grown potato, it's so satisfying to eat food that you've grown on your own garden.

    Yes indeed--we have some and we planted our strawberry beds right next to the rhubarb that was already growing there when we bought the place.

    Pie!

    Here at our place in South Carolina we have been cultivating about 800 square feet of raised bed gardens for about the last four years. Blessed as we are by a mild climate, we are able to get in three to four crops a growing year (including winter!).

    We grow vegetables, have a strawberry patch that gets a little bigger every year, and have a traditional kitchen herb garden wrapped around the kitchen porch. This year we added three apple tree saplings, an avocado tree, and arbored up about fifty feet of muscadine grapevine, which fruited pretty good for its first year. This winter we're adding a new 100 foot plot for barley, both for flour grain and beer. We hope that some of our peach pits will take their scarifying, and the gods willing we'll add three or four peach trees to our small garth. Eventually, we plan on five olive trees to round out our orchard.

    We currently have one hive of honeybees, and plan to add a second as soon as we are able.

    All the work on our place, as I've mentioned before, is done by hand. Since both of us are archaeologists by profession, we take the reconstruction of Iron Age lifeways as close as we can. As serious heathens, we feel that one's labours with the land deepen the relationship with both the gods and the land spirits. Every day we work in the gardens, in the forest, and on our land we feel the very real presence of those powers that hold stewardship over our world.
