Around The Farm

Around the Farm
The weather has been wet!
The chickens are laying abundantly.
Zinnias, butterfly bushes, roses,sunflowers, and chrysanthemums are in full bloom.
Harvesting: butternut squash and tomatoes.
Canning: pear sauce and pear butte.
Baking: whole wheat bread and butternut squash pie.
Making: soap! Just made batches of Cool Water, Pink Sugar, and Mint Julep.
Sewing: completed a new skirt this week.
Family news: all three children are doing well. Laura is constantly asking, "how about we do------" with whatever idea she has in mind. Elizabeth talks more each day. Gabriel is growing well and sleeps 6-8 hour stretches at night.
Life is busy and we are blessed.
