June was a wonderful and busy month.
This last week of June has brought several HOT days and the garden has really taken off! (and with some late spring rains so have the weeds!) Needless to say I’ve spent a great deal of time over the past month in the garden. 😀
We have been getting quite a few raspberries. If the kids stop eating them we might even have enough for some jam!
Dusty found this cute toad. He kept it in a 5 gallon bucket until the girls and I got home so they could see it, and I could take a picture. He then let it go in the garden, after naming him “Bruce the pirate toad”.
Jo’s cats Boots and Tiger…Boots has six toes on her front paws, but this is not what makes her special. Jo bought her the pink collar with her own allowance money. We tried to tell her the cat would lose that thing the first chance she got, but for all the world Boots seems to be proud of it. Often as not she is now referred to as “Prissy Missy”.
Stirring the compost pile. (How redneck!)
Jo loves to read and she loves animals….this is her reading a book while the chickens and kittens play. As you can tell by the hair, this was about three minutes after she rolled out of bed. She would live in the barn yard, if we let her. 😀
These are the potatoes we planted in our recycled potato bin. It’s amazing how much they grew in June!
