The Garden's Last Hurrah and Other Farm Stuff

The hot and dry weather finally broke and the dry, crunchy, dying grass began to grow back and my garden, which was also dry, crunchy and dying, began to pep back up. The peppers and eggplant are what we are getting most, green tomatoes and little radish, lettuce and spinach sprouts.

The day we picked all this Annika was being less than helpful at naptime. I managed a large batch of Polpette de Melanzane during her refusal to go to sleep in her bed time.

But the basil was done like this....and now we have a bunch of pesto in the freezer. Which makes Cale, my pesto lover, extremely happy.

What else is going on on our little homestead?

We are waiting for our adolescent chickens- who are now 20 wks old- to give us eggs.

We are on the search for a buck to provide stud service for Bella and Bertie.

And we are packing....

Because this little homestead is moving to greener pastures.

But more on that one later.
