Relaxing and recharging

Keeping up with a small farm while having full time jobs can be difficult.  And truth be told my husband does much of the work on the farm.  I take care of all the home stuff.  Every weekend we’re working on one thing or another.  Sometimes it important to just slow down and enjoy what we’ve worked really hard for.  Today was one of those days.   It was warm and sunny, the ocean was calm and beautiful to look at, and I’m in the middle of a good book.  Of course, we had already worked on the repair of the greenhouse (getting ready for more tomatoes), re-did the area where we store our surfboards (it’s so much more efficient not to mention neat), and did car maintenance, so it wasn’t a totally non productive weekend.  But taking time to recharge and take care of yourself (sitting by the pool and reading a good book) is productive.  It’s important too.  img_0656

Farm girl wannabe, enjoying life on the Big Island. We have a small five acre farm along the Hamakua coast. While we have a few crops we grow to sell, we are trying to create a self sustaining lifestyle on our little piece of paradise. I set up this blog initially to help me keep track of different things we grow and how well they’re doing, but recently decided to go public with it. I enjoy reading other hobby farm sites, and thought sharing our story a little might inspire others as they have inspired me.

    1. Mystery and Weesaw. They’re names David liked from … Sponge Bob Square Pants. Mystery is on the right. She has stripes on her legs. They’re both girls.
