Picture Time…

 

Okay, apparently I was the last to know about Eyes of Wonder.  I will try to be more on top of things next time. LOL

Not an exceptional harvest, but we were excited to have fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet onions, and eggs.  **Not picturered-3 strawberries and 1 blackberry, ha!  ha!  I have bowls in the freezer, so I just fix them as I pick them and toss them in the freezer.  Maybe someday I’ll have enough to actually make something.

I found this the other day while I was doing chores.  How perfect it is!  I felt bad for the little bird who worked so hard to build it, but apperently forgot to attach it to the tree.  ~Smile

This is our miniature peach tree.  Due to weather it has yet to be very productive, but at least it’s pretty.  My herb garden consists of:

Pineapple Sage (this smells absolutely amazing, I want to make an ice drink out of it as soon as I figure out how), Oregano, Chives, Lemon Balm, Rosemary (in a pot nearby), Rhubarb (not an herb, but needed to get it in the ground somewhere), Thyme, Peppermint (in a pot nearby), and Basil.  I also have chamomile, echinacea, and parsley planted in a different area.I also ordered a miniature lemon tree, lime tree, two grape vines, and a blueberry bush from Gurney’s this spring.  Everything is doing great so far.  Winter will be the true test.  The lemon and lime trees  will have to be moved inside.  A friend of Randy’s has offered to give us a large green house structure.  We will just have to purchase the plastic.  I am so excited!  Now to find a spot, hmmm.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
