House Upon a Rock is built on… well… rocks. Quite literally. So while we have 4+acres, it’s not worth much for growing things. However, our dear neighbors just down the road were smart enough to choose farmland instead of a rock quarry. And they are so good to us that they invited us this year to garden with them at what we fondly call Sunnybrook Farm (in honor of Rebecca, if you’re not familiar). These friends have irrigation water, tractor, green thumbs… everything we don’t. And they have Gunner, a sweet old dog that reminds us of our beloved, departed labs. He and my Rebecca are buddies. Ryan is, too, but I think he was busy chasing cows instead of cuddling at the time of this picture.
The good thing about Logandale (well, one of the good things) is February. Beautiful, sunny days perfect for planting a garden while everyone else is still under snow. So that’s what we did for hands-on science during those early, first days of home school. We tilled and planted and tended and weeded. And learned about the life cycle of plants. And enjoyed being outside in the winter sunshine.
We are- and try to be- House Upon a Rock!
(though we’re glad we have friends with better soil 🙂 )
