It's raining here today. Well, maybe more like sprinkling but it's wet enough that the ground is visibly wet. The benefit: I don't have to water the garden. The drawback: It's been so damp in the mornings anyway, I'm struggling with mold on the green beans. This weekend, while it was sunny, I was able to capture a few good pictures.
Our freak carrots this year...
New wax beans starting to push through
One of my most favorite parts of the garden...Sunflowers! Just getting ready to bloom.
Mason eating dirt while waiting for me to finish taking pictures. Good thing it's organic dirt. Gavin working on clearing the back part of the property. There is much more to clear but he got a start on it yesterday. He spent about a half hour with the Bobcat pulling out trees and leveling the brush. We were talking afterwards about how much time that would have taken without heavy equipment. I do not envy the folks that had to clear their land by hand so long ago. We're not sure what we're going to do with this space that we'll have cleared but our first thought is to get our miniature Jersey. While we would love to move to more property ASAP the reality is that we still have a ways to go before we are financially ready to do so. But, we really want our own source of milk too. It's going to take a while to clear, especially with our rainy season right around the corner, but we'll work on it slowly. And lastly, chickens. I think I'm addicted to chickens. Does anyone else feel like that? I love having them. I could get more and more and more and more but I told Gavin that I'd limit our flock to 10 while we live here.
