We are thoroughly enjoying our summer. It has been nice. Being not too hot or too cold.
Our garden is growing well. We are excited to have vines full of watermelon, cantaloupe, butternut squash, and cushaw.
The tomatoes are ripening. We are enjoying the yellow striped tomatoes most.
The meat chicks have grown so much and have graduated from their brooder to an outdoor pen.
The baby goats will be ready for a new home in a couple of weeks. We need to get busy building a milking stand.
Summer porridge makes a great summer breakfast. I use 1/4 c oats, 1/3 c milk, 1/4 c yogurt, and 1/2 c of our frozen strawberries. Let it sit in the fridge over night, and you have a quick, easy, and delicious breakfast.
We mixed up a batch of slice and bake chocolate chip cookies. I found it was easier to make into a roll after chilling in the fridge for a while. I also filled a whipped topping tub. If they turn out good from the tub, that will be the way to go for me.
Here are some black and white pictures from around our homestead taken by Madison.
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. I will back on soon to catch up on your blogs!
