Saturday on the Farm

I sent my 15 year old daughter out yesterday to take pictures for me. Here’s what she saw:

The Raspberries are giving us a few a day. And we’ve been eating them all out of hand. We actually get more raspberries in the fall. So hopefully, I’ll have enough to do something with.  We love just eating them straight, but it would be nice to put enough in the freezer to have a raspberry crisp or something for Thanksgiving dinner.

The Blackberries are coming in, too. I have enough in the fridge to make something now. The kids all want Blackberry Cobbler, so I guess I’ll make that first.



The Butterfly bushes are blooming!


The white one is so big and beautiful. This was pruned back a LOT in the spring, too.

The purple one is smaller in comparison, but is almost 5 feet tall.

The purple flowers are beautiful, too.

Finally, some action in the vegetable garden to report. lol The Cucumbers have blossoms!

From the reports I’m hearing, the squashes and tomatoes have blossoms, too. And we have beets the size of a pea. lol


I never tire of looking at the goats on the hill! There’s just something so peaceful about animals grazing on a hill.


Hope you enjoyed my little tour this week. How are your gardens growing?

Here are some links I found interesting and helpful:

Chicken Chart
Worm Composting
Dewberries– I don’t recall seeing any of these on our property, but I will keep my eye out for them
