    A friend had a good idea to take pictures from the same angles over time as we transform our property to a working homestead. I decided to start today on Solstice, which happened to include the first snow in our new home. Behold the land of possibilities:

    urban homestead possibilityFrom the mailbox looking toward house – we have a swing for the front oak tree

    cape codProperty line looking at front of the house – we planted the walk with blueberries this week

    backyardBackyard as viewed from house – three car garage, lots of trees, chicken coop behind the garage currently

    From the back of the property looking forward – biggest tree is four people around and will be site of treehouse and natural playground

    Front yard as viewed from inside the house – what can we grow here?

      Oh it’s just gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to live on that street — close enough to everything but you feel like you have some *privacy!*

        Thanks, Dawn. It is surprisingly private here, even with the big road and high school.

      Rachel, I love the pictures! What about some arches of grapes and some seating for the front yard? Maybe even some edible flower beds around to make a pretty and fragrant seating area?

        What isn’t pictured well are the water and soil issues in certain parts of the yard. I would love grapes and an arbor – hopefully they’ll grow!
