When I left mama’s to come home, I also left the USB cable that connects my camera to the computer. As a result, I’ve taken several pictures the past two weeks that I wanted to share with you but couldn’t until the USB cable arrived. So……. now that the USB cable is here, I’ve got a bunch of pictures to share. And I’m going to share most of them right here, in this post, and tell you what we’ve been up to for the past couple of weeks……
This year we’re doing all our canning outside, and I am loving it.
We’ve been getting an abundance of cucumbers. And we’ve been canning a LOT of pickles. We’ve got close to 100 quarts now.
Our tomatoes are just starting to come in. This is the first we picked – it’s a Mortgage Lifter.
Not all our tomatoes are that big, but we were sure pleased that the first we picked was!
The peppers are starting to come in now, and we’ve been getting lots of beans. I’ve got a crock full of string beans and onions fermenting now. They should be ready in another week or so.
The sunflowers are doing great. They were all blown over during a storm when they were about a foot tall, but we staked them to fencing, and they recovered nicely.
The turkey poult is growing like a weed. She’s getting bigger and bigger each day and, as an only child, she is incredibly spoiled.
Poor Jake is molting and is down to only a couple of tail feathers.
He really seems to like being a daddy. He goes on walk with Sarah and the baby quite frequently.
It sure makes me proud that Jake and Sarah are such good parents.
Dolly still thinks Duke is her best friend.
And Duke still chases her all over the yard.
My sweet friend, Elinor, sent me some lily bulbs in early spring. We didn’t have the flower garden put in yet, so I planted them in pots. They’ve started blooming, and I think they are just beautiful.
That one is called “Scheherazade”.
This one is called “Debbbie”.
Summer is my favorite time of the year. I hope each of you is having a wonderful one!
