Water System, Final Harvests, Friends
September was a unique month for us at the homestead… and away from the homestead.
During the beginning of the month, Morgan laid insulated pipe for our gray water system. We are increasingly closer to running water at the homestead! The pieces are all coming together.
During the month, our dear friend Caity came out to caretake for us so that we could attend weddings of a few friends in the lower 48. This was our first trip away from the homestead together since we first moved here 5 years ago!
We were so grateful for the opportunity to go camping in California, witness the beauty of the Yosemite Valley, eat LOTS of fresh fruit, and enjoy time with friends.
While we were away, Caity kindly finished the garden harvest and loved on our animals. Caity has spent part of the summer at the homestead for the past three years between her commercial guiding jobs. She knows our animals better than anyone else. We are so lucky to have her support and friendship.
In late September, Caity left and more friends, Chris, Morgan R., and their daughter Ursula, came out to the homestead. Ursula adores “neigh-neighs,” and was excited to spend time with horses. They helped us finish up a few nagging projects around the homestead. Thank you friends!
I think that there is the misconception that living remotely, we are very isolated. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are so lucky to get to share this place that we have created with guests, friends, family, volunteers, and interns. This summer we got to share the homestead with about 30 people. We couldn’t build this special place without the love, support, and unique community that the homestead has created.
We hope to get to share it with you! Sign up for our updates and book a visit!
Margaret, Morgan (and the homestead critters).
