We're Baaaaack!

Wow!
It feels as if I have been away for such a long time.
I am so accustomed to visiting with you here and also
to catching up on my favorite blogs each day with my breakfast.

And though I missed you all,
I have to say,
I had a ball.

We were here....

Yes, we took a vacation...
away from the farm.
We packed up our family
and headed to the beach for a week.


While we enjoyed the sun and sand and surf
and made new friends,
a small army was keeping the farm going.

And I have to tell you....


although we had a blast,
it is great to be home!!

I could hardly wait to pay a visit to.....


where I found produce (and weeds) to be plentiful!


Daily watering and lots of sun has made our garden explode!

We are in a deluge of green beans, sugar peas, peppers, broccoli, carrots
and onions.
The hot, sunny weather has pushed the tomatoes right into juicy redness
and we have been eating a couple each day....
just a taste of what is yet to come.

I harvested our box of yellow onions yesterday
and they are in the greenhouse drying.
Today I will plant beets in that empty box.


Almost perfect weather conditions have helped my one lone
bee hive to prosper.  We have been adding supers every few weeks
as the bees are producing oodles of honey in this hive.


This week is going to be an exciting one around the farm....

I can't wait to share it with you!

Hint....there is a special delivery package at the post office this morning
that I will be picking up!
Hmmm.....wonder what it is????

I'm so happy y'all had such a nice vacation! It's nice to get away every once and a while! But, it's always good to come home!

Sounds like you are going to be eating lots of homegrown, yummy goodness! Congrats on such a wonderful crop!

Welcome home!

Seems to be a great year for winged creatures like bees and wasps. I've seen bees everywhere this year. Very busy!

Glad you enjoyed your vacation... it always feels so wonderful to come home, doesn't it?

Good to get away for a little while, but so good to get back home, isn't it? We took our vacation the end of May, and we decided we would take future trips in the fall or winter. I just don't like to be away from the gardens!
Can't wait to see your future posts. Your blog is now one of my very favorites!
