Preparing for winter

We've had some very busy weeks around here: cleaning up the garden, last canning projects, taking part in a neighbourhood studio tour, making batches and batches of soap for holiday sales, drying herbs for our tea blends, saving seeds, teaching classes, and preparing the house, chicken coop, greenhouse and yard for the colder weather to come.  The weeks are full not only with homestead tasks, but also our homeschooling journey which is deepening as we get more involved in the local initiatives with other families - for example, taking part in a forest school for 8 weeks (exciting permaculture/nature-based experiential learning facilitated by Jennifer from All Sorts Acre); and organizing a family yoga series to share with our kids.  There is little time for writing about these projects when the days are full with the doing of them.
