Hydroponic Garden For Herbs

One of the challenges of living in the mountains will be the very short growing season. At our farmhouse in Bountiful, we had a garden and a small orchard that we used regularly. Andy and I both love fresh herbs, and Andy uses them a lot in his cooking while I use them in baking. When we eventually build our house, we’d like to add a small greenhouse to the back so we can continue our garden while we live up here. In the meantime, we’ve decided to try a…

Mountain Diaries

I’m happy to say that we are completely moved out of our farmhouse and up to the mountain! On Saturday, Andy and I packed up the last of the boxes and brought them up here to the rental cabin. Now all we have left is the stuff for the moving sale, which we’re going to have on Saturday. Once that’s done, we just have the closing left the first week of September.

Lessons I’ve Learned From Moving

We’re going on day six of the moving process, and today we’ll finally be done bringing the rest of our belongings up to the rental cabin. I think we’re both feeling a little displaced right now. It seems like we’re camping or on a vacation up at the cabin. Everything’s dirty and in boxes or suitcases. Back at our farmhouse, everything there is also dirty and in boxes, but it doesn’t feel like home anymore. We feel like strangers there, too. I know it’s just a matter of time before…
