Trip Around My Garden

Farmer LifeBetsy FarmerComment

Spring time is one of my favorite times of year in my little garden.  Going out there in the early mornings and after the sun goes behind the hillside is so lovely.  The birds are chirping, the toads are croaking, the bees are humming and my chickens are clucking.  Every sound, every smell brings a sense of peace that is hard to find elsewhere.

The bumblebees and mason bees have been loving our lavender and raspberry flowers right now.

The beginning of broccoli.  Crossing my fingers it doesn't bolt before the heat sets in.

My metal hen...constantly watching over the garden.  ;)

And our blueberries. Oh our blueberries.   We love them!

Oxbow Farm

Oxbow Farm field trip for my youngest son's 3rd grade class was today.  This farm girl really wanted to visit the farm and learn as much as she could about their farming practices.  It was a beautiful day to visit such a lovely farm.  Hope you enjoy these photos.

My son loved eating the kale blossoms.  They encouraged them to eat as much as they wanted...so he did.  That's Farmer Shey back there..."HI!".

We learned about mason bees, saving seeds, pest control, and much much more.  Loved going to the farm and seeing the kids try all the yummy veggies.
