~ Around the Farmette ~

The irises are in full bloom , they're gorgeous this year.

Little Froggy and I gathered dandelions Saturday , he enjoyed gathering the blooms and loved the dandelion fritters.

I still haven't found the other guinea nest , but I know there's one somewhere. One of the guinea hens disappears each day , but she has been coming to roost each night. The others continue to lay eggs in the nest I have found.

Mr. Sneaky Snake is still hanging out in the old oak tree.

The chickens have found a nice cool place to hangout during the heat of the day.

Dh and I got started on the goat shed this past weekend , hope to finish it this weekend.

My Tommy Toe tomatoes are almost ready to transplant.

I'm getting lettuce and spinach now.

The garlic looks great , but we really need some rain. Hopefully we'll be getting rain tomorrow. I need to fertilize with fish emulsion this afternoon.

Hi Lib ~ We're suppose to get rain today , so I'll be inside getting things done.

Hi Mother Moon ~ Yep , snakes seem to sneak up on you and they're creepy.I'm trying to capture this one , but he has been staying near that hole in the tree and takes cover in there if I try to get him.

Hi Sophie ~ It's good to hear from you , glad you enjoy seeing what's happening around our little farmette.

~ Many Blessings ~
