Strange Surprises from Market Basket

I am always surprised at the verity of the Market Basket super store in Biddeford.  Mind you; this is a little city off Hwy 95, south of Portland in Maine.  Today without any effort at all, I found: Honestly, it is not so much… Continue Reading “Strange Surprises from Market Basket”

Life’s A Trip, Enjoy The Fall.

This April will mark five (oh my god!) years since we packed up the truck and headed the wrong way across the country.  After half a decade of winters I can promise you that people headed west for more than the chance to strike… Continue Reading “Life’s A Trip, Enjoy The Fall.”

A Murder Mystery, Most Fowl.

Living close to the land reminds you constantly that death is a daily part of life.  The best example of this has been our experiences with the flock(s.) Our first young flock was decimated by a family of raccoons; two springs ago. One night 17 dead chickens. There… Continue Reading “A Murder Mystery, Most Fowl.”

Winter Is Over!…?

It may not look like it but I am declaring today to be the last day of winter! I know, I know, it really doesn’t look like winter is done but trust me; it’s on the way out!  Today we saw a liquid substance on… Continue Reading “Winter Is Over!…?”

Snow Anyone?

This should give you some clue about the amount of snow we have.  The husky can almost climb the drift to the roof…

No Candy, No Cards, No Diamonds; No Problem.

For Valentine’s Day we got- another blizzard. Shocking, I know but great for snow forts! I have already posted my feelings about today’s holiday and they have not changed one bit.  In fact, I am ever more convinced with each passing year that romance is overrated.   It… Continue Reading “No Candy, No Cards, No Diamonds; No Problem.”

“Well, There’s Your Problem…”

Yep, we have reached the point in the winter when the parking lot snow is over the top of the trucks, rack and all. Every other row of parking spots turn into ski slopes. And everyone is running out of places to put new snow.… Continue Reading ““Well, There’s Your Problem…””

Pysanky 2015-The Pysankydome.

IT’S SNOWING!  Still.  The greenhouses are almost gone and every couple hours there is a new drift knocking on our door. Adding to the fun it has been bitterly cold.  Any plans I have had to do something fun outside are reconsidered after the ten minutes… Continue Reading “Pysanky 2015-The Pysankydome.”

“Lord, Deliver Us from Commercials.”

Our greenhouses are in the process of being swallowed by snow. Most of the surrounding area is under hip deep drifts, we have been snowed-in for the better part of a month but I am at my wits end with the commercials that interrupt our… Continue Reading ““Lord, Deliver Us from Commercials.””

Wisdom From The Lakota.

My sister and I were raised by a pack of rabid surfers and hippies.  When we were very young our Godfather, Todd discovered the world of Ishi-The Last Yahi.   Todd was already one of the most accomplished outdoorsman you will every meet.  For instance;… Continue Reading “Wisdom From The Lakota.”

Creepy Lobster Trap Valentine Tree Anyone?

I wanted to check out what the storm systems had done to the coast so I drove down to Cape Neddick near where we used to live in Kennebunk.  As I headed out to the lighthouse I was greeted by this cool lobster trap Christmas… Continue Reading “Creepy Lobster Trap Valentine Tree Anyone?”

Snowed-in Cauliflower

Over the past few weeks our area has received over 70 inches of the white stuff, with more on the way next week.   Consequently we have spent A LOT of time indoors, unable to leave the house. We have taken turns doing the shopping- depending… Continue Reading “Snowed-in Cauliflower”
