The gourd garden a month ago & today. These bottle, birdhouse, dipper and luffa vines shade this bed through the summer letting us grow cooler season crops.
My wife says I have a one track mind. Truth aside, I think any reasonable person would notice this purple tomatillo has a really nice butt.
If you substitute old zucchini for pizza, ducklings for children, and chickens for strangers, this video could be 20 seconds at any Chuck E Cheez.
Blue Skies, green trees and a big sunflower standing watch over the vegetable garden. Pretty much looks like this summer's day feels.
We waste very little food thanks to our chickens. For example, here are Gaucho, Buffy and Summer with a fresh summer salad of overgrown zucchini and cucumbers.
After a two-year wait, the bergamot (monarda) finally flowered. I thought it would bring butterflies, but now I know why it's called "bee balm".
Picked a little over 11 pounds of blackberries and raspberries for this year's jam session. There's still plenty of berries left on the vines so we're going to try and make blackberry wine for the first time.
Celebrating the first day of summer with a photo gallery of all the varieties of sunflowers growing on the Acre. (Links to the seed source are included.)
Pulled last year's dried gourds off the trellis to make way for this year's vines in the hanging garden. Now I've got a wheelbarrow full of gourds.
Hard to tell from the photo, but that's a mama duck and (at least) two new babies in a nest in the lavender. Check them on the live stream in a few days.
