September 2018.

We had an unexpected surprise in the middle of the month. The yellow hen that we’ve seen sitting in the pole beans, came out with three little ones.

 

As a rule we don’t hatch chicks any more, simply because if there are any roosters , they will have to be given away and it makes us sad. But occasionally there is a partisan hen that will quietly disappear into the garden and come back with the little ones. I won’t deny, they always make us smile.

……………………….

The garden shed is finally getting finished. It is amazing, but the summer is over and we looked back and thought, what have we been doing? And it’s not like we’ve been sitting around all season! Oh well…here is hoping for more productive times.

 

More shed. Frank calles it Shed-Mahal ๐Ÿ˜‰ It will need to be painted, of course and have a door and windows put in. I also want little overhangs on each side to store things under. And maybe a small porchy-pooh on the front, just for looks.

 

…………………………………

Some of the harvest. Interesting that we had hardly any tomatoes at first, and then they exploded.

Hot peppers (just some green chilis and serranos, not super hot) is one of my favorite things to grow.

 

Some more harvest

 

…………………………………

We caved in and bought an Instant pot. Cosori brand. Frank calles it a smart ass pot ๐Ÿ˜‰ Inky is sceptical, so am I. But I am willing to give it a whirl ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just Summer

This is where we live. We had glorious two weeks off at the end of August, beginning of September andย  we spent them at home. We left the house three times in two weeks. When we feed people in the barn their evening meal, we can watch the moon come up over the fields. This is our happy place.

 

 

Thank you all, who read to the end
