Garden update...


Our green beans did a good job, we're still loving our tomato crop, the peppers couldn't be more peppery and lastly the tater tires tanked. I mean we got a little over 5 lbs. of potatoes from three stacks of tires. That's okay, live and learn. This garden is our first so we're pleased overall and our freezer is almost full! So I consider the venture a success.

We're having wonderful weeds around here. I mean really beautiful! I know the names of some but not all of them. If they wouldn't kill my sinuses I'd have bouquets all over the house. Oh, and our next door farm has a new baby that is just so cute I can hardly stand it. I love farm babies. So if you know the names of these weeds let me know.

Everyhting looks wonderful! And I love farm abaies too... *sigh*...
By the way- I did some searching on the internet and couldn't find any prairie gown patterns, but I did find this neat site where they actually sell them at a reasonable price- http://www.geocities.com/lml4/nightgown.htm

If you go to your search engine and type in "Little house on the Prairie dresses", you'll be amazed at what you find! I never knew that was still so popular!

You say "garden update" and I see a cow. Did you plant that? How long from seed to calf?

Thanks for doing the leg work Farm Chick.

Hey Bell, he's part of the garden scenery :O)

Awwww....farm babies. How adorable! I don't have any near me, but I drive by quite a few on my way home and I love watching them.
I'm so happy your garden is doing great! :-) Our taters tanked too, so maybe it was something in the air?

Hello friend! I finally have had an opportunity to stop in for a visit ~ and its just what my spirit needed today. Yes, we certainly are kindred spirits. Your homeplace is beautiful ~ I so enjoy all the wild flowering plants that surround our place too. God is so very artistic and creative.

By the way, the pattern for church dolls that I have is just the cutest little thing. It is like a fabric trifold strip with pockets and just little fabric doll shapes that fit into each pocket. I'll see if I can find that link again so you can see what they look like.

And Bowls & Annies is offering a free printable pattern right for a darling little raggedy ann. She really makes the hair easy on these dolls. I have made some traditional sets for my mom & sister ~ and I sure know what you mean about that hair. When I was finished, I was fortunate to still have my own hair! LOL

It's been such a blessing to visit with you today. I'm looking forward to some quiet time so I can read more.

Blessings & Joy,
Lea

The baby calf is soooo cute. You do have some pretty weeds. All of our weeds are yucky. Regarding your post below, I did not know that basil leaves could be frozen...I will need to give it a try. I just started growing some and it has soooo many leaves.
