Saturday On The Farm

Saturday on the Farm

It’s another rainy morning on the farm. It has rained quite a bit this summer. I don’t know the official rain total amounts, I just know it’s rained a lot. In spite of the fact that we’ve had a lot of rain, our creek has dried up.

In this picture, the creek is coming from ups stream on one side of the house. There is a pool of water that probably has 27,999,997 mosquitoes in it! lol

And here’s the creek in the goat pen. See the lighter grass? That’s the creek! The tall weeds on the other side of the fence in the back, is where the creek comes into the goat pen. The branches on the fence in the front of the picture, is where the creek leaves the goat pen. When there is actually water in the creek!

The goats didn’t care that I wanted to take pictures, they wanted to see what I had for them. lol

I thought I’d share a picture of the hills. Inside the fence is part of the goats pasture. I’m standing across the field. See the kids standing at the first fence? The other fence is on top of the hill, with the neighbors cows being on the other side. It’s funny to see the cows standing at the fence staring at the goats. lol

I’m standing at the bottom of the hill looking up at the kids. It’s really steep! If you look close, you can see the fence posts from the upper fence. I don’t know how the goats can run down this hill without tumbling down! But they do, at full speed!

Here’s one of the pepper plants in the garden. It has lots of peppers of all sizes on it.

I’ve posted pictures of our squash plants before. But look at them now! The pesky groundhog has destroyed them! He has flattened them out, as well as chewed on the stalks. He’s just too quick to catch! My husband knows where his hole is, I guess he’s going to have to lie in wait for the groundhog to come out. I have no problem sharing a little of the produce with the animals, but do they have to destroy the plants? grrrrrrr

I’ve never shared a picture of our whole raspberry patch.

And a picture from the front. Eventually, there will be raspberries the entire length of the fence, on both sides. Maybe then some of the raspberries will actually make it in the house! We tend to stand outside and eat them as they’re ripe. lol So delicious!

There are a lot of new blossoms and new raspberries coming now.

Now for the grape vine. This is looking from the house to the driveway. The walkway from the driveway to the house goes through the grapevines. It makes me smile every time I walk through. :) At this time of year, though, we have a hard time keeping the vines in place. As soon as we put them back out of the walkway, new ones pop out.

There will be no grapes for us from the vines this year. Oh, we had grapes. But the birds ate them all! See? Here’s evidence that we had grapes.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of the farm.  Now it’s your turn!

  3. Lovely pictures! Thanks for the tour!

  4. Thanks for the tour! Our raspberry bushes seem to propagate at exponetial rates, so I am sure it won't be long before both sides of the fence are covered with berries. BTW, great close up of the baby berries!

    Looking good, I can not wait until next year when our raspberries come in!!!

  6. We're the same way with the raspberries! I don't know if we'll ever actually bring any into the house! :)

    Your place is so idyllic! We had birds eat our whole crop of grapes in our other house just as we were getting ready to pick- in one day they were gone! I feel your pain. :-) Thanks for sharing at the Tuesday Garden Party!
