I bought an active bee colony last September from some lovely people who were moving out of the country.

opossum-under-farmhouse

That’s a catchy title, isn’t it? Unfortunately for us, it’s also true. I’ve been writing about restoring the 1920’s farmhouse we bought a month ago, and after a lot of demo, we finally got to the part where we’ve hired someone to come in and level our floor.

It’s been three weeks since we’ve moved onto the property we purchased and started this farmhouse renovation, and during that time we’ve uncovered a lot of things we had never seen and never heard of.

Once Upon A Farm Blog

When I was a kid, I spent a lot of my summer vacation time on my grandparent’s farm. They owned 4 quarters near Watson, Saskatchewan, and it was a paradise for little kids. We ran through the fields in the summer and spent our winters attached on a car hood attached to the back of snow mobile. That farm had …
