This spring I planned to have a lot of flowers. I bought bulbs every time I went to the store. After my husband dumped several loads of compost into my flower beds I got to work. In the rains of early spring I worked in the mud then put up chicken wire all around my beds. This was to keep my poultry, dogs and cats from digging up my bulbs. This summer it is all blooming.
Next were all the seedlings I had in my greenhouse. Tomatoes and cucumbers all started then moved to various parts of my farm. Now I have them all producing happily in this heat.
This is a pumpkin pancake made from pumpkin pulp I saved from last year. Very tasty and reminds me of fall.
Along with coffee steeping, I have my sweet potato starts rooting in my kitchen.
My husband seasoned this old cast iron pan and it is perfect for pancake making. No teflon, no aluminum - just good quality cast iron.
