There's not much going on around the farmette except for the extreme summer heat. Buddy has found him a cool spot though , he spends the early morning hours on the pool deck , then he moves to the concrete pad as the day heats up.
Dh finally dug the waterline and put the spigot up near the chicken coop and goat pen. That is a big help with taking care of the animals during the heatwave we're having.
The echinacea looks beautiful ............

We planted the garlic back in Oct. 2010 , by Mar it had sprouted and was around 6 inches tall.
We harvested the garlic the end of May .........
It's been curing for 2 weeks now , a few more weeks and it'll be ready clean , braid and hopefully sell some at our local " Grower's Market.
If we do well with sales at the " Grower's Market " , we plan to expand our garlic production this year.

passed away yesterday. I'm going to miss her , she was the hen that followed me and was so nosy , she always got in my way each time I was working outside. She would jump up on whatever I was working with , be it the wheelbarrow , wagon or boards we have stacked under the shed ...... she had also been known to jump on my shoulder to check things out. She was very friendly and didn't mind being handled or petted. She was sick about a month ago , but had gotten better and had been free ranging and acting normal. But late yesterday afternoon I found her lying dead in the hen house , she's definitely going to be missed.

The cabbage did fairly well although we have grown larger heads. We'll be eating alot of cooked cabbage and coleslaw this month.
The carrots didn't grow very long ..........
but they're sweet , delicious and Little Froggy and I love them.
I harvested all the lettuce and can't wait to grow more this Fall.
