    Yesterday we had a dish my wife called southwest chicken. Pretty much chicken covered in homemade salsa and baked. But it all came right here from our property!

    More and more i find our plates have more of our own food on them. Sometimes 2/3s sometimes all of it. Our grocery bill last month was under $200 for the 6 of us and that was mostly coffee and lunch stuff.

    That's such a great feeling! Makes it all feel like it's worth the effort.

    All the shiro plums were ripe so I picked them and we've been pigging out.

    If any apples survive the deer, we'll have them soon

    That's amazing! Homesteading and working the land is hard and often disheartening, but so very rewarding :) And that homegrown food tastes so much better than the shop bought stuff too!

    I saw some potatoes when I weeded around them this afternoon and brought in what I could get without digging, which was 4 small ones. Had those with a huge carrot and some peas for our dinner, along with some fish.
