It’s just been one of those years, we got the garden in late and it’s been slow to get going. Now we’re happy to say that things are really starting to grow well and produce so it may end up being a good gardening season after all.
The day began with an awesome surprise, our guinea hatched out 9 keets!! We decided to catch them and put them in the chicken tractor to keep them safe from predators. Sounds like a great idea, right? Well, let’s just say that she didn’t think it was a good idea at all….
It’s harvest time around here, and the field around our place recently got cut. So we’re trying to gather as much straw as possible before they come and work it under. It’s a fun evening in the garden until it gets cut short…
Rotten mulberries, a wasp, an imposter lady bug, the sound of rain on a sunny day, mulberry stains on the forehead, randomness and giggles… Ya know, the simple, good stuff of life…that’s what you get when you send the kids to pick mulberries.
The mulberries and black raspberries are ready to pick! What did we make with them? Well… you’ll just have to watch!
We’re getting ready to plant something new in the garden and give you an update on the turkey eggs… but wait… we have to rescue kittens first! As we always say, there’s never a dull moment on the homestead!
So, how are those potatoes that my mom planted in laundry baskets doing? Well… you’ll just have to watch! Oh, and we also show you all the other good stuff she has growing in containers.
The ducklings are growing so fast, the bunnies are getting bigger, and the turkeys… well they lost their eggs. How? You’ll just have to watch!
Well… right now my garden kinda resembles the crusty bottom of a dried up lake. The struggle has been real… but I’m not giving up!
Those boots…they’re well loved.
