I've come up with what I think is the ideal property listing for us.

Remember this isn't actually real....... as far as I know.

 - - -

10 acres total that back onto the Bay of Fundy of which, 5 acres are wooded with some fruit and nut trees through-out as well as some sugar maple, and 2 acres are fenced pasture/hayfield.

The property is hooked up to the electrical grid, but also has a solar/wind array that covered 75% of the previous owner’s usage. Phone and cable lines are connected to the main house and Fibre internet is available in this area.

The spacious main house has a full unfinished basement, newer vinyl siding(2010), and a new steel roof(2017), and a well cared for wrap around porch. It has 3 bedrooms on the upper floor as well as a full bathroom. The main floor contains a large kitchen with enough room for a harvest table, plenty of counter space near the sink and stove, and all the cupboards you could dream of as well as a large pantry off the kitchen. The living room has a large south facing window and a Russian/Masonry style wood fireplace. A half bath + laundry room completes the main floor. Appliances include gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, HE washer & dryer(2015)

Above the detached 2 car garage is a bachelor apartment/ in-law suite with it’s own full bathroom and kitchenette. Perfect for an older teen, or as a rental property.

The old bungalow style farmhouse is nearby but a reasonable distance for privacy. Recently wired for electric, it is heated by a wood stove, and is still in great condition. It has a full bathroom and small kitchen with water from the main well. There are two bedrooms off the living room. The previous owner was using it as a writers retreat.

Outbuildings include a small barn, 20x30 poly-tunnel, as well as a 10x15 greenhouse near the main house, and a few small sheds in various states of repair.

This property would house the 5 adults we plan to have living there full time as well as providing space for dairy animal(s), poultry, hogs, and rabbits and a massive garden.

What do you think? What does your dream home look like?

Sweet Pickled Radishes

  Mrs and I have the house to ourselves again and we also have two community garden plots to grow in! So far this year, there have been a few small harvests. Due to distance and illness and such the garden has not received as much care as I'd like, but we are enjoying what IS coming out of it.  11 lbs 8 oz of washed and trimmed radishes On top of the chive flowers, we had two small and one HUGE haul of radishes. The large haul was sorted and the larger ones(some as big as our budgie) were sliced for pickles and the rest were blanched and frozen for future roast-root side dishes. The picked radishes are a favourite here. The process steals almost all the heat and leaves behind a nice crunchy sweet and sour pickle. These are the ingredients PER 500mL JAR so you can easily whip some up from grocery radishes to give them a try. These are the instructions as I found them. I'll put my changes at the bottom: Ingredients: 1 bunch radishes about a 1/2 pound, stem and root ends removed a

Everything Is Temporary

I've been using the mantra "everything is temporary" to remind myself not to get bogged down in the minutia of organizing when there's still decluttering left to do. My plan is very simple, but very broad and therefore time consuming. I've already applied this logic to my clothes and books to be a proof of concept on easily gathered categories. The rest of our stuff isn't really sorted into categories yet and is spread across the house, So my plan is as follows: Day to day life needs to run smoothly. The decluttering has waited this long, and it can be done in the gaps. Sort everything into categories (some obvious garbage/donations can be tossed in this step) Go through each category carefully with Hugslut in order to keep only the things that make our life better.  Seeing what's left & organize our stuff in a way that allows for frequent enjoyment of the beautiful things, easy access to the commonly used things, and easy tidying/cleaning/ca

Garden haul & update

Today’s garden haul. Next to the tiny cabbages are wood sorrel and chives with the roots still on to plant indoors. The potatoes weigh in at 13.5 lbs (approx. 6kg).  I also have a cup or two of micro potatoes. Might put them in soup whole. :-) The garden got away from me this year… and yet we’ve had so many radishes we had to give them away, and we’ve got garlic for the whole year, and we’ve got a really good amount of potatoes based on how many I planted.  This year I learned how important weed suppression is in the fall, and how little it matters to some plants. I think I’m not going to sign up for the community garden next year. I’d rather focus on what needs to be done before we move.  Oh! News on that front! Our saving plan has gone well and we’re planning to start looking for our forever home in 2022! 🥳
