Oh, so busy...

Happy Friday to you all! I am just quickly checking in to say, "hello", and let you know I have not forgotten you all.  I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping up with posting. It's not for lack of wanting to; life has just kept me so very busy...a good busy, though.

Beans, squash, zucchini, red potatoes, garlic, kale, chard, lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, and lots of herbs are being harvested, almost daily, from the gardens.  Looking forward to tomatoes soon,

Dilly beans and pickles are filling the pantry shelves.  Kale, broccoli and beans are going into the freezer.  Parsley, basil, oregano, cilantro, and sage are drying and filling the herb jars.

A mama and daddy Rose-breasted grosbeak have brought their family of little ones to our feeders. What a joy it has been watching them each day!

Our eldest daughter celebrated her 19th birthday...19th!!!  Where does the time go?

Work on the addition continues...cedar shingles and trim going up this coming week.

A clutch of keets (baby guinea fowl) were warmly welcomed to the farm a few weeks ago.
Little #2 and #5 brought home a stray kitten they found while on a bike ride.  The poor little thing had been hit by a car.  She is currently at the vet, and we are all praying for a small miracle for her.

Wildflowers are being brought in daily and placed all around the house.

I have been trying to stay updated on Instagram, with lots of garden related posts, so feel free to come by and visit me there from time to time.  I'd love to see you.


  1. I always love to read your posts! Praise God for the "good" busyness in life ☺️ Summer has been very busy around here too. Loving our harvest and flowers in the garden.

  2. So delighted to hear of all the summer joys and busyness. How dare your daughter..........grow up. Why do they do that?????
    I cannot remember you mentioning and addition. Could you remind me what it is?
    Thank you!

    1. Kim, We have been (slowly) working on an addition to our house...four much needed bedrooms, a library/school room, laundry/sewing room, and a porch. Here are a few links to some posts I made about it.

  3. Oh it's good to see all the happy goings on in your corner Emily. You have been busy it's lovely to see the fruits of your labour. I hope the new little kitty is doing well and will soon join your happy household.
    Take care,

  4. It's lovely to read what you've been up to. I can't believe how much you've harvested, no wonder you're busy! Good to know you're on instagram, I've just found you there. I find that IG is perfect for me when I don't have the time to sit down and write a post, but I still want to feel connected with my online friends. x

  5. Sounds like you're having a wonderfully busy summer with your family!! I hope you give us an update on that poor little kitten. : ( Our middle son turned 19 yesterday so I can completely relate to how you're feeling right now!!! : ) Have a beautiful weekend!! xo
