I’ve been pondering what to write.
This marks the one-year anniversary since I left my (paying) career.
I think that subject will deserve a whole post to itself.
We had a rain last night.
Let’s take a stroll and catch you up.
The pigs have been moved to their growing pen.
That is mama Bernice in the pen in the background.
I think now, maybe, they shall be called, The Hogs.
The Hogs just ain’t as cute as they used to be.
Well, sometimes they are still cute.
I think it is interesting that Happy, the donkey, steps around the volunteer pumpkin/gourd plants that came up in the lot.
My “Garden of Weedin'”. I am going to paint that on sign and hang it out there.
No pumpkin blossoms, yet. The plants are growing several inches each day!
Pumpkin Pie comes in or gets roused and brought in from the pasture twice a day to eat her feed to help her grow.
The flowers are gorgeous everywhere!
And of course … the goats.
Hmmmm….. I guess that pretty well tells the story of what I’ve been doing.
How are you!?
Happy July 1. I hope you enjoy this day.
Nothing like farm living. Always something to do. I wouldn’t change it. Thanks.
Thank you for visiting!
Girl, that is some sunflower you got going. Yes, the hogs are no longer cute. You’ve been holding out on us regarding the punkin patch. The plants were very small the last time we saw a photo. Now they are huge. I want some of those red bee balm seeds. For trade, I got luffa gourd seeds or orange and yellow cosmos or amaryllis (take 3 years to grow bulbs big enough to bloom).
I will happily send you some bee balm seeds. My email is evermarla@yahoo dot com if you want to email me your address.
Your flowers are beautiful! Iv love the pumpkin patch too!
Thanks! It never takes a break….something always needs done.
Your place is delightful! Your new job(s) are ever so much more rewarding if not filling in the pocket book! Love your sunflower!!!
It is rewarding! 🙂 It’s nice when people understand!
I’m fine. Crazy busy over the last couple of weeks. Getting ready for weekend company from out-of-state. Unsuccessfully trying to keep the weeds out of the garden. I have picked about 6 tomatoes already though. Will update my blog some day in the not-too-distant future.
Congrats on the tomatoes!!! I haven’t had a ripe one, yet. Good luck with your preparations and enjoy your company. 🙂
Those piggies grow fast!
They are eating a LOT!
I bought a rustic looking sign over the winter that says; “Garden of Weedin”. I need to put that out somewhere! Your flowers are beautiful – you must not have any deer….!
Really!? I was hoping to be the first to think of it. It’s a fun idea, anyway. Lots of deer in Illinois, but none come up by our house.
The pigs have grown so much! Love those goat faces, Pumpkin Pie, and Happy, of course. Your flowers are so pretty.
Everything has loved the sunny but cooler temperatures this week.
