Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Mellow Sunday

We walked to the garden in the rain this morning to take a look at how the seeds we planted on Friday were faring...there have only been a couple early morning downpours that caused us concern, but I still wanted to take a look and make sure the rain didn't wash everything away...and I'm happy to say everything looks good.  I planted 12 more bush bean seeds while I was there because I didn't have enough on Friday to fill the space we allotted for them, and I wanted them to get the benefits of all this rain.  But I've created an opportunity to see how accurate the Farmers' Almanac Gardening Calendar is, because it states today is a "barren day, no planting"...hmph, it will be interesting to see how these particular seeds develop.

On the way back from the garden, I found this lovely little field of wildflowers near the top of our driveway, such a cheerful sight!

Other than that, we've been snug in our cozy cabin...
...with the smell of pumpkin pie baking.  No recipe here, all I did was unroll the pie crust into the pan, blend together 2 eggs, evaporated milk and a can of pumpkin pie mix, pour it into the crust, and bake...it really is a mellow Sunday!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
