We're not homesteders as such, but we do live a simple life that is in touch with the cycle of work and rest is evident throughout nature. Our approach to living, based largely on the reduction of wants and a mostly non-monetary return from our organic horticulture, bee keeping and other sorts of labor. Were living the good life along the Mississippi river valley in north eastern Iowa.

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend I strapped on my skies to get down to the Sugar Bush. This morning I jumped on MRX's fat tire bike to down here.
Everyone else ran down.
Last nights batch boiled down nicely.

I gathered some more rocks and worked on the campsite.
Pouring off the first batch. Using my new little double strainer.
