Ruth Stout Style Garden Update & Plans + Wildlife

A quick look around my garden where not much is happening now, and plans for this summer if it ever gets here. I'm certainly itching to be able to get more things growing this year!

For some past years garden videos, see any of these.


And then some more of the amazing wildlife I've been able to see in the last month!

Thanks for following and let me know what your garden plans are. Or what kinds of wildlife you might have around your home!

Tiny House Cooking - Apple Crisp

Hello folks. I have finally completed another Tiny House Cooking video! A simple dessert, apple crisp. Or actually apple cranberry crisp as this one is.

Please pardon the second camera shots not being centered well. I'm still figuring out the best setup to record things like this. Believe me, I can make a dozen meals in the time it takes to record, edit, and upload one video like this! :)

Enjoy! And don't be scared of cooking. In a tiny house or otherwise.

And just a few more shots of some of the amazing critters around here for fun.

Fy Nyth Through the Seasons

The snow is going! As you can see above, my yard is finally almost bare as of yesterday afternoon. The spots where it's been bare for a few days are even looking pretty green! 

As I've watched how rapidly the weather can change around here, I thought that would be fun to see kind of a time lapse of the seasons changing around my house. So I've compiled a little video of the two and a half years of weather as it comes and goes and changes over and around my home.

Enjoy whatever weather you have around your home today!

This shot was just one day before the first photo in this post. A few warm days make a big difference!

And a few of the little things I've seen around my house in the past couple days. I have lots of squirrels and chipmunks. 

I saw the first dandelion blooming yesterday too!

I'm seeing butterflies pretty regularly too. Can you find the one camouflaged in this photo?

Lastly, a grouse that was pecking quietly around the brush. I love these little peaceful birds.

Enjoy whatever weather you have around your home today!

Wood Splitting

A little wood splitting yesterday. The sun was out and I got warm enough to shed my jacket pretty quickly. I should just need to split a few more of the rounds that I stacked last fall and have had covered with a tarp all winter, to have enough wood for the rest of the cold weather this spring. Also this is my first shot at a time lapse film, and I think it works well for something like this!

In other news, I saw my first two butterflies of the spring yesterday as well. And even managed to get a shot of one!

Tiny House Cooking Series

Ok folks. Here's the start to a new tiny house related project I am working on. Tiny House Cooking videos. Since I've had a lot of requests for what I cook, how I do it, and what's possible in a tiny house, I will attempt to answer all those things over time.

Check out the introduction first.

And then here is the first actual cooking video I have compleated.

I hope to be able to add new videos to the cooking series on a regular basis as time allows.

And here's a brief sampling of a few of the many meals that have already happened in Fy Nyth's kitchen. Enjoy!
