Fall is here and the Nice Family Homestead is coming to a time of rest. Aside from our pigs and Brussel Sprouts, everything else has been canned or put in the freezer. I thought you might enjoy some pics of what Fall looks like around here on a sunny day (unlike rainy today)….
Welcome to the Nice Family Homestead…
Pig 1 and Pig 2
“Minnie” the Easter Egger
“Cottonball Head” the White Crested Black Polish
The cornfield at rest
Brussel Sprouts still growing
Garden beds being prepped for winter.
Do you have a homestead? What do you do during this time of rest?

We have had a very busy summer. Our garden kept us on our toes as we learned to make organic bug repellents, mold killers and more recently – learning to can a variety of recipes. I hope to share some of the those recipes with you soon. For now, I’m getting inspired by Fall. I started to decorate and wanted to share some pics with you. Maybe you will be inspired too!
Front entrance. I made the wreath from supplies I bought at the craft store. I also painted the rock with a chicken a few years back. The two mums will hopefully tie it all together once they bloom.
The entryway has our “Shoe Bin” and “Hats & Gloves Bin”. I topped that with a family photo, cornucopia stuffed with fake flowers (thrift store special) and added some leaves to the large mirror.
Our Family Room gets the most use out of the whole house. We watch T.V., play games, drink morning coffee and spend time together. I try to keep it free of clutter, but still cozy.
This is a little corner cabinet in the Dining Room. It’s an old record holder I picked up at the thrift store. I use it to hold art supplies for the kids. The wicker watering can on top is decorated with fake leaves and the two photos in front are from autumn memories from years past.
Hope you enjoyed those few pics. Now back to canning Hot Pepper Jelly and freezing carrots. Happy Fall!
