Today the process of putting up the board and batten siding has begun. Mr. Farmer and hired hand/friend is outside attaching the studs that the boards will be attached to. It has taken 4 years for us to get to this step. Many of life's happenings have slowed us down but we are here. Below you will see a picture of what the outside of our home on the Homestead will look like.
Gardening has come into full swing also. We have been living off of broccoli and cauliflower and now we have snap peas too. I forgot to take a picture of the peas but I will get it tonight. We are so blessed to be getting such a great bounty of fresh vegetables this year. That and all the hard work Mr. Farmer has been putting into the Homestead.
