SUMMER FARM TOUR
Walk around the farm with me
let's see what the summer brings to us here in the Deep South.
I'll show you some summer sewing/quilting next post!
Fresh picked veggies come to rest on this table on my back porch before entering the house for eating or preservation. Tomatoes grown in Alabama Red Dirt are a Culinary Delight! Yum!
Japanese Beetles are devouring everything!
Fall apples are forming in the backyard
Watermelon and Cantaloupe patch
Look!! Watermelon ready by the 4th of July
Cantaloupes about 1 week from eating! Delicious!
I love fresh cantaloupe for breakfast
Blackberry vines next to melon patch. We've picked almost 3 gallon so far.
Blackberry cobblers have been a staple at the dinner table.
Fall pears on new pear trees planted this Spring.
The girls give me 3 eggs a day! Pound cakes are incredible made with these fresh eggs.
Rhode Island Reds. I want more of the Black and White hens but I can't correctly spell Dominekers (sp?) Ha!!
#1 Husband restores Tractors for a Hobby! This is his latest restoration for a Friend's Father's old tractor that had rusted for years in an old barn. You should have seen the Before!
New decals and fresh paint bring an old Gal back to life!
Now, I wish we could go sit on the front porch together with a tall glass of Sweet Tea...iced tea in the south is more like tea with your sugar! A gallon of fresh brewed tea has 2 cups of sugar! Yikes...but Oh So Delicious!
I also make sugar free and sweeten with Splenda by the glass (I don't like to sweeten a gallon of tea with Splenda...leaves an aftertaste in my opinion)
