Harvesting~ the best part of gardening!

August is nearly over and somewhat cooler weather has finally arrived! At least sporadically but hey, nothing's guaranteed, right?

One thing's certain, if you plant a seed, it will grow! And I love to see how my efforts have paid off. Put on your garden shoes and follow me.

Now, what'd I do with all those lovely tomatoes??? Well, I promised myself I'd eat BLT's and sliced tomatoes every day. And I have, with pleasure! I also hauled buckets of them to the neighbors down the road, and shared with friends and family living in town so they could enjoy them too. And what kind of gardener would I be if I didn't can a few jars?

Oh, and I saved the best for last. It's inside the pen....

We're expecting!!

That's Hazel and Lucy, two very competitive hens with an 'Anything you can do, I can do better!' attitude. They're both sitting on eggs and I can't wait to see how they will tell their babies apart! For sure it's going to be one big happy boxful!

Yep...definitely looking forward to September!


  1. YUM...I love BLT's...and don't forget all that wonderful salsa you can make!

    And Congrats to Lucy and Hazel...love that they have a competitive nature!

  2. Salsa for sure! I love eating nachos in the winter cozied up with a big bowl in front of the telly with a great movie! Makes me wish for snow. : )
    As for the girls, I can barely wait to see those tiny butter-colored heads peeking out from beneath their mama's skirt! So glad you came by, Christine!

  3. We had a BLT with one of your delicious tomatoes. It was yummy. You are such a wonderful gardener and writer too.

    Thanks for the handout and the stories you write.

  4. Oh, oh. That was me thanking you for the tomatoes, etc. Forgot to sign my name. All the best, Annette

  5. Thank you, Annette! I recongized the signature. Hey, did Dan tell you I ran into him at the store the other day? Glad you got BLT's, they're so good! And so good to see you here!
    : )

  6. I'm a terrible gardener and am always impressed with people who do it well. Awe, baby chickens. Too cute!

  7. I can hardly wait to meet the baby chics and get a kick watching them trail after their mama. The gardening I really have to credit my southern hubby and his green thumb. He knows just what the plant needs to flourish.

    Glad you came by, Dawn!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. You're awesome!
