We’ve completed the first week in our new photo project. Here are all of the photos that we have posted so far.
While the chickens were curious, they weren’t quite brave enough to be outside today for very long.
We raised our egg layers from day-old chicks and now they are laying eggs for our family. It’s been an amazing journey to watch them grow.
While everyone loves summer when everything is lush and green, being out here has shown us how beautiful winter is too. There’s something about the sun setting behind the bare poplars that gets us every time.
Even on a cold, windy day, it feels to get outside in the sunshine for a while. Our goats are happy for the company as well.
We’re always amazed by what memories are triggered by a walk around the farm. What once was another opening in the woods is now a reminder of the first spring day that we took books and read while sitting on fallen trees.
This clearing is one of our favourite places out here: it’s not far from the house and once you’re there you’re immersed.
One family’s waste is another chicken(s) treasure…No guilt for wilted greens. Our flock of heritage breed laying hens will transform these nutrients into super-powered eggs for our family and a few others…
The garden and greenhouse lie dormant in the deep freeze of a Prairie winter. Everything rests…
We’re starting a little project this year. Every day we’ll share a picture with you that represents some aspect of the beautiful and simple life we enjoy at Nourished Roots. We’re starting with a shot of this trio of extraordinary trees that provide so much for us – boughs for a winter solstice celebration. Medicinal pine pollen. Shelter from the wind.
