I have just been busy!  I can't tell you how many blogs I have read with that as the first line in the post.  Maybe it is because I follow so many farm/homesteading blogs and well this kind of lifestyle does not lend itself to loads of free time to write about all of the exciting adventures this life takes us on.  Well school has started and strangely enough that actually gives me a bit more time.  It makes me get schedueled.  And I am also in a break of canning for the moment so that alone frees up time.

Here is my harvest from today.  Red long beans, some green beans, cutting celery and tomatoes; san marzano, better boy, yellow pear and black cherokee.

Me in the garden.  Have I mentioned on here that I have lost almost 15 lbs!!!!  Just tooting my own horn a bit.


I haven't had a ton of motivation to be in the garden this year because of the incredibly HOT summer we have had.  It seems rare to get a day under about 90 degrees and 100% humidity.  They say though we are getting a break from the 90's starting tomorrow!!  Just in time for the holiday weekend.  Maybe they will stay away.  To add to it we have had NO rain.  It has been so dry and all my plants are thirsty.  We do water some but it is not the same as a good drenching from a summer rain.

So when I am not here(on my blog) you may just find me here(in the garden)


  1. Great harvest! It looks so yummy! Well done on losing the weight! you look fantastic! Vic xx

  2. Congrats on the weight loss! You look great!

    At least you did a garden this year lol. After two failed gardens I didn't even try this year. I don't know if it's the ground here or my inattention to details (watering lol), but it just hasn't gone well here. Your garden is looking great!

  3. You look amazing! We're getting ready to start school too. I started Abby on her phonics already. basically review and such. This year should be interesting being that i'm joing a homeschool group. We meet up every thurs. I'm looking forward to being on a schedule!
