July 28 already! Summer is flying by. We have finished our third week of school, doing school only 4 days each week. We are very glad for Saturday. 🙂 I will be making yogurt, making laundry detergent, and freezing green beans. We will also give the house a good cleaning because Quentin’s parents are visiting tomorrow.
Our garden is still growing well although the zucchini and squash plants have given in to the squash bugs. There are a lot of watermelons on the vine, and we hope to pick corn soon. I don’t think it will be too much longer before we pick some okra.
This little apple tree has one branch that is loaded with apples.
And we are starting to pick tomatoes. My guys pick early. 🙂
I have worked the last few days in our flower beds. Most flowers have bloomed already, and we are left with a lot of green.
My father-in-law gave me the seeds to this older variety of marigolds. They are unique.
Yesterday we got our first hibiscus blossom. The rose of sharon bushes are also starting to bloom.
I am always greeted by the goats and chickens. They hear the door open and start calling.
We have a couple of hens that are still setting. They have hatched five chicks so far, and one of their eggs was peeping last night.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
