Between school, sports, farm work, gardening, and work, the days are shorter and shorter it seems. I’ve neglected my blog these past few days for sure!
Here is an update on what’s been happening in our world.
The plants we started in the greenhouse in March are all nicely tucked into the ground! Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Zucchini, Summer and Butternut Squash, Celery, lettuce, Sweet Corn, Gem Corn, Pumpkins, Gourds, Cucumbers, Peppers, Carrots, Potatoes, and sweet Onions to name a few.
The chickens are busy at work and we are keeping our customers stocked on their farm fresh eggs.
An elderly gentlemen who has come to get manure for his gardens from us for the past few years brought some apples as a gift for the man of the house helping him load his buckets and get them in his garden. He is too weak now but finds the strength to garden! These apples are a true gift especially to the boy of the house who informed me a few weeks ago we only had 2 containers of our homemade applesauce left. I told him it was not apple season yet and I would pick up a jar at the store if we needed it. His response was priceless “you can BUY that??”.
A game of “Goat Army” was played. Hard to get those goats to fall in line!
This is the last time the “tween queen” will cut the grass as a “tween”. She will celebrate her 13th birthday on Monday.
A beautiful walk around the Buffalo, NY waterfront while the boy was at his hockey practice. It was great to sneak out for a 45 minute walk! I’ll post more about that at another time with a few more pictures to share!
And tonight we ended the long work day with a great bonfire!
Back to work tomorrow making crockpot applesauce, seeding some pastures, a memorial service for a friend’s father, and a soccer game for the boy!
