|Harvesting Fresh Veggies from our Garden|
After hearing complaints from some friends that we have been on way-too-long of a break, I thought I'd throw up some pics of our highlights this summer for your viewing pleasure.

Above is a pic of our carrot harvest this spring, along with snow peas. The garden went a little wild this summer thanks to my neglect and Brie being away at camp, so now it looks more like a jungle. At least for the spring it looked good. And we do have an abundance of tomatoes, squash, peppers and herbs to reward us for our earlier efforts this year.
And here to the right is a nice photo of Carrie teaching our Junior Farmers how to construct a cucumber "teepee" for the plants to climb on. Very cool, indeed.
|Guests at the Family Fun Day Get Friendly|
with Nugget, a Silkie Bantam
We had goats, face painting, pony rides, food trucks, you name it, we had it. Folks came from all around town to step back in time, get a taste of farm life and learn more about sustainable practices.

We're hoping to have our own next year!

as face painter extraordinaire!

Brie and I hope you've had as fun and relaxing a summer as we have, and good luck getting settled back in to the new school year over the next couple of weeks!
