IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME!

It’s been a long time! I haven’t blogged in about 3 weeks now. I took some time off to try to regroup and refresh for the new and exciting life I am creating. July 17th was my final day at the day job I have had for the past 9 1/2 years. Needless to say, it was bittersweet! I had to take some time to process both the joy and the fear, but I am back now. Today, for the first time, it feels like things are beginning to take shape. My schedule is starting to come together, and I feel like I am beginning to find my rhythm between farming, herbalism, markets, and taking time to nurture myself (the last one still needs lots of work).

Here is a little bit of what I have been up to the past 3 weeks.

My best gals threw me a little party my last day of work to celebrate my new journey. They are the best!

2The very next day we had our first farmer’s market. We are attending the West End Farmer’s Market every Saturday 9-12:30 and we absolutely love it! Come see us sometime if you can!

4 5 13 20 14We have been harvesting tons of herbs and flowers lately. Which has allowed us to increase our product line and do a few special order bouquets.

This bouquet we did for a friend of ours to give to her sister on her birthday!

We have also launched our skin care line. You can find it in our Etsy store. It has been great to cleanse and nourish my dirty farming skin!

22Lots of things in the garden have failed or broken this year. I am so thankful for this guy for helping me keep it all together!

We have been preserving tons of food and eating lots of garlic!

16 15We are still harvesting quite a bit and are keeping up with our CSA and market stand at Porter Road Butcher. You can find us there the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 4-7!

9So far, so good. I am loving my new adventure and looking forward to sharing all the new ups and downs with you all! Thank you for all the continued love and support and for help making our dreams possible!

Peace,

Nicole

  1. I was just thinking of you a few days ago, I was giving it a week and then, I was going to write. So happy for all these wonderful things. I know they can all be so scary (change always is) but you look like you are completely in your element. Looking forward to reading more about all these amazing events. xox
