Lots has happen this week – we lost Amy (our duck), upgraded the blog and more.   So we are taking a bit of break of sorts since it was a week of considerable stress and little sleep.

We do have some great post formulating that we are working as we hope to bring you more “homestead happenings.”

But, right now, not in the mood much for writing, so here’s another photo montage of sights from the urban homestead.   We’ll let the photos speak for themselves.


Oh, and don’t forget if you are wanting to know what kinds/types of vegetables we are sowing – they are available at our online seed store.

    I’m so sorry about Amy.

    The produce looks wonderful. We harvested our first baby lettuce greens of the season for a salad the other day. It was heavenly ;).

    So far all I have to harvest is asparagus, but it is oh so good. I can hardly wait for June and a few more things to eat.
