A picture from a solar thermal installation John is wrapping up. This type of solar system is for pre heating domestic hot water. It is an affordable and truly viable option for those looking to reduce their utility bills and carbon footprint.

Eric, Cindy & Jake (the ever faithful dog) spent a couple of beautiful fall days with us last weekend. We enjoyed a nice walk around the farm, checking out the windmill and John's growing solar panel collection, picking pumpkins and meeting the pigs.

After pumpkin picking we made our way home to have a bonfire, drink some amazing champagne, munch on salmon jerky straight from the west coast and chocolates, and carve pumpkins. A perfect Sunday afternoon!

We were so lucky to have good friends John & Micaela and almost 3 year old Maggie visit us this weekend. Here are some photos of our adventures which included a hay ride, pig feeding, picking grapes, a bonfire, R&R, foilage walks, and getting to know Nellie.

We had our second annual cider pressing with friends Will & Kristen this weekend. It was hard work gathering all those apples but I am looking forward to the delicious hard cider! Will and John in the trees

John and I have been glued to the Presidential/Vice Presidential debates. Here are a couple of pictures from last night, John and I tucked in and were intent on watching, however Nellie went into 'play' mode. I guess she is not into politics. Well, one thing is for sure, she makes a better door than a window!
