Adjusting to a New Job + Prepping Farm For Winter {October 2021 Goals}

It is officially fall around here, both shown by the calendar AND by what you can see outside — we woke up to a layer of frost on the flower farm this morning, and the huge trees in our front yard are turning gold. The chickens’ egg production seems to be slightly tapering down, and …

I said in last month’s goals round-up that August would be the month where we were drowning in flowers, and . . . I was right.

Flower Farmers Ain’t Got No Time For Goals! {April Plans + March Goals Recap}

I’m Starting a Business! {March 2021 Goals + February Recap}

You’ll notice that I’m quite a bit late in posting this since I usually publish my monthly goals on the 1st of every month. However, I have an excellent reason—I’m starting a business! Since we were finally able to move to a home this last year that had a bit more land than we had …
