New photos of our home

We've been spending most of our free time setting up house, both indoors and out. With the help of Lily and Sascha this weekend, we finished construction of our raised beds and teepee stalks, prepared our herb garden, and planted our cacti. Finally, our house is turning into a home.

By request, here are some photos of our progress:


Our puzzle, music, and dining area


Where we wake up to yoga and meditation in the mornings and work/study in the evenings


Where we spend most of our time, cooking up the yummiest of mostly-vegan meals


Our bedroom altar faces the east




Before and After of the Front Yard - Lily and Pearl weeded the front and planted cacti this weekend ~ what a difference!


Chris put together these redwood planks (courtesy of Barry) and they are ready for veggies. Amazing work, eh?


Sascha dug up about a foot of old soil and Chris bricked the sides. In the next few days, we will compost the roses and add top soil and herbs.

It's been a busy weekend, and we are exhausted but seeing the progress we've made so far has us really excited. There is still a long way to go before we start harvesting but we'll send updates as the sprouts start to shoot up.
