Team Build: Modern-Industrial Work Tables (For Our Actual Work)

You might have been wondering if I do anything other than talking about all kinds of philosophical and intense shit these days, which… fair. The good news is that I do, in fact, still build stuff. Like these, for example: So, here’s a weird thing. During the week most of my daylight hours are not spent spend tearing things apart in ...

Hoarfrost

Yeah, it sounds like something from Lord of the Rings (and, frankly, it’s been feeling pretty Middle-Earth-ish around here for the last week, so that’s fitting) but it’s actually real weather phenomena where the fog and the frost make my back-yard look like this… It’s eerily still and beautiful. Nothing feels quite...

Wherein I Didn’t Lose Inches and Gained Perspective

This post started off as a Facebook update… At first I was going to make a quick comment about something that happened to me at the gym today, and then I added a little commenary, and then it got longer and longer, and I realized maybe I had something to say that was more than a Facebook status update.

The Gradual Shifting of Everything

Just before I started this post I sat down at my workbench in my office (odd in-and-of-itself because I haven’t spent more than fifteen consecutive minutes in this room since some time in March), I opened my computer (which earlier today I spent a good nine hours on, trying to dig myself out of an over-full inbox), and then I rolled my should...

Oh, Snow!

Have I mentioned that it has been unseasonably warm around here recently? Like, last weekend I checked one of the big items off my “winter farm prep” list and got a truckload of hay from a local farmer… which I loaded and unloaded in a T-shirt. Right? That’s last weekend. And then Saturday I woke up, walked outside, and&he...

End of the Garden 2015

Intellectually I understand that the end of the growing season is just a part of the natural cycle of things around here. I lived in both Hawai’i and Florida for several years when I was younger, and the lack of seasons was… disconcerting. (Okay, honestly, it might have made me a little crazy(ier).) So I actually really appreciate all ...

Adventures in Beekeeping: Prepping for Winter

It’s likely that this will be my last beekeeping post of the year, and can I just say… right after randomly adopting some donkeys, and then getting chickens, having bees on the farm was one of my best ideas yet. (Yes, even when I got stung in the jugular the first day I brought them home.) I’m still an incredibly novice beeke...
