The journey (real work) begins

Thanks for joining us! Not sure who we are? Read this.

We’ve been tinkering away at this homestead thing for a couple of years but our full-time jobs (and not wanting to have hungry children) have limited what we’ve been able to accomplish so far. But, the time for messing around is over — we’re jumping into the deep end of the pool.  … Good thing our youngest child is a lifeguard!

So, our first project for spring is under way: a sap-house. We built the floor inside yesterday — that’s a 12-foot door and a 10-foot floor — and parked it in the field in the very cold rain.


Pay no attention to my fashionable outfit. Look at that floor! On skids for easy transport to its semi-permanent location in the front field near the maple trees we’ll tap in the spring.


Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
