Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.
You dance with joy over the gift of avocado trees for Mother's Day. Hubby picked the perfect gift to add to our mini orchard. Two of these lovelies will be planted in our yard this very afternoon. I could just do the happy dance! Who needs candy or jewelry when such a thoughtful gift will be in our family for generations. Happy Mother's Day to all who pass this way! Happy Chicken Dance here.........
Hubby found this sneaky hybrid (Sid pictured) yesterday hiding in the corner of one of our beds. Let's just say it was not long for this world and wound up on the grill. How are the gardens at your place doing? We are hitting 90+ degree days already. It is hard to keep up with the watering with all the high winds we experience. We received a gift from Mr. Larry on how to build our own solar power system. Means, I have some serious reading to do these next couple of weeks. It would be nice to put in a solar harvesting system because we get plenty of sun down here. I will have to check out wind powered systems since, the wind almost always blows around here. I will be back later to tell ya'll about the baby rabbits Sid found in our yard. The little doves flew away already -- boy that was quick, I miss checking on them. Today's chore will be making pickled radishes. Enjoy your slices of heaven!
Grand daughters Jayline and Sarah digging asparagus bed.
Chicks are growing fast and look almost too big for nest.
Grandpa has a pot of beans on with leg quarters on the grill. I just put on the hybrid squash (no seeds just look at photo in last post.) I have been weeding our Brussels sprouts row.
Earlier we put in three concord grape vines and two Queen Anne raspberry canes. Junior is just chilling out with his girls. Sid took off to spend some time in Poth with his Uncle Danny. Not much else going on around the coop.
This little monster took down 3 grown tomato plants. Hubby just dispatched him with a 12 gauge. Sarah our brave little gardener is happy to inspect her grandpa's work. Hopefully, this will be the last one daring enough to invade our yard. We don't take lightly to poachers especially, when they are stealing from our plates.
Aren't these squash crazy looking? We did not plant any squash in our corner bed this year. This squash just showed up and has these shiny, ridged, and covered in small hair. It's all good with us, since we will put them on the grill tonight along with our beef fajita. It is nice to start harvesting this early in the year. I have to go into town tomorrow to get pickling supplies for our first batch of radishes. What do ya'll have planted in your gardens?
