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.

It was a good day to dig up the sweet potatoes and tighten up the hoop house
I've got a few greens started
The vines are gone and my new handle for the tater fork didn't fair too well.
We burned the brush pile.
The hounds relaxed and the sweet potato bed is ready for some buckwheat and tillage radishes.
