In case you are wondering – tilling, feeding, watering, weeding, mowing, growing, picking, preserving, and even time for a little fun- that’s what we’ve been up too.
We are truly blessed – let me show you.
The blueberries are coming on strong. We have picked and frozen about 5 quarts so far.
I picked elder flowers to make tincture, but I haven’t got to the stinging nettle yet.
The hot summer temperatures have done wonders for the garden. Weeding has been minimal but we have needed to water every few days.
The prayer garden is in full bloom. It has also requiring watering and much weeding.
The kids and grandkids came for a picnic. Berry picking (eating) was a hit with Addy. She loved strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
Jackson had been eating a chocolate cookie. The evidence is still on his face. Aunt Kara is amused by her little buddy.
Hail! Hail! The gang’s all here! It happens so infrequently now days, that all four of my daughters are together, I always like to get a photo of them. ♥
We are not the only busy ones. Check out this hive.
I have spotted bees in the tickseed,
on this marigold,
and on the sweet clover. They are also foraging in the birds foot trefoil, the white clover, Canadian thistle, oregano, lavender, and thyme.
We hope to harvest some honey soon. ☺
Bonus Photo: Since this dragon fly posed so nicely for me how could I not include it?
If I seem to be MIA over the next week or two check for me in the garlic field. It’s time to start the harvest. Until next time – be well.
