Life goes on keeping us all busy as bees (we’ll show you a few of our bees if you scroll down a bit!)
Here’s another pictorial post for your enjoyment of some of the happenings here on the urban homestead.
Farmer Justin, like a machine, whips up a few dozen soil blocks
The soil blocker he’s using is about 15 years old and has been one of the most valuable tools used here on our micro farm.

I’ve lost track of how many post LHITC has dedicated to the makin’ of soil blocks – here are a few
Saturday social with friends. Some even take up knitting for the first time!

Pruning time. Farmer D cuts away at the “fruit tree hedge” that runs along one of the urban homestead’s fence line.
Checking on the bees before winter.
This Queen is a beauty and a big girl! Can you spot her?
Star fruit. These two beauties are the first we have harvested since we purchased the fruit tree 7 years ago. Farmer D jokes they are worth a couple hundred dollars a piece and that he’s going to “bronze them!”

Covering up. The raised beds get winterized with a light row cover
Honey shed work continues
Up go the sides!
Jordanne treat us to a new dessert — homegrown/made guava jam and cream cheese pastry. YUM!
Monthly co-op pick up time. I wait for the truck driver to unload the goods.
