Farm Tour

I haven't been posting lately, so I though I would show you why :)

I finally got the garden mulched with straw!

We spent the weekend before last hauling hay. We have enough to last us the winter now. So relieving to have that done!

These guys don't take a lot of work, I just wanted to show you how big they have gotten! I'm expecting their first eggs towards the end of this month!

And of course just some pretty lilies :)

Blackberries are just starting to turn pink.

I've been attempting to start some lavender (back) from cuttings off of my old plant. In front is some Thyme I started from seed.

And last but definitely not least, my first tomato of the season! I absolutely cannot wait to sink my teeth into some of these.

This Saturday we are taking a little road trip a couple hours north to look at a couple of Great Pyrenees pups. Since we lost our beloved Pyr, Whinny, the farm just hasn't been the same. Hopefully we will come home with a Father's Day present for dad ;)


  1. I love what's growing on in your garden and your chickens are so pretty. Thank you for sharing your progress.

  2. Isn't it nice when you start seeing the results of all your hard work!

  3. Nothing better than first tomatoes!

    1. I can't decided if I should fry them up fro Fried Green Tomatoes, or let it ripen and eat it fresh! Such difficult decision...

  4. Our blackberries are amongst my favorite things to grow. I hope yours come in well!
