Early June photos
The black raspberries. Yes they are still red--mostly. I admit to have eaten a few.
Our Peach tree needed crutches.
Our strawberry season is over.
We ran a third hot-wire to maintain the dog boundary in the field where the broiler chickens are lurching around.
They are incredibly healthy seven weeks old.
I'd move them more than twice per day if it weren't so bloody hot.
They mostly lounge around except just after a lurch forward move. That is when they scurry about looking for that illusive insect.
This is a view from where the chickens are toward the house.
Each of the kids have their own raised bed. They love it and are very proud to show them off to any visitors.
They each chose what they want planted there.
The greenhouse is mostly empty of seedlings now.
I like the soil block maker, I admit it.
The tomatillos have battled and seem to be winning.
There be salsa verde in my mouth very soon.
The new soaker hoses get my full endorsement.
They are better than the old ones in every way. We have the 75 foot version.
Here we are trying winter wheat in between our tomatoes.
This is the season where our garden looks the best--right before everything starts dying.
Toly has become fixated on the hose connectors. We use the quick connect style.
Jack is a great dog. We have such high hope for both him
These pigs are our favorites of any we have raised.
Ginger is so cute.
Astrid is a show dog.
She'll never compare to Henry but in some ways she is better. She definitely is more protective of Tabitha and the kids already. She is about half grown now.
Yes, she will be a big dog.
This will be garden soil next year.
Jocelyn is looking great these days. She gets a few mower bags full of grass clippings each weather permitting day.
She loves it more than anything. It is like pre-chewed-food.
This is my barn ladder-stairs. They pull up out of the way on a hinge mechanism.
