I’m just writing in with a quick update to let you know I’m here . . . just a little busy. I have so many things I want to share and talk about, but life has been hectic.
My mom’s been out of town quite a bit — first for vacation, and then for a family emergency — so not only is my blogtime babysitter not available, but I’ve been trying to help take care of her enormous garden while she’s away, too.
(My photos are terrible, because I forgot my camera and just borrowed my mom’s phone camera. But you can see that this is our garlic alone. It’s a BIG garden. And we really love garlic. We’re also growing pretty much everything else out there, from lettuces to eggplants to corn to sweet potatoes. And also tomatoes. LOTS of tomatoes.)
And look what my family just added to the farm:
Pigs! Pastured pigs are almost non-existent anymore. I’m so excited that we’ll have access to natural, healthy pork in the fall. These guys will have a happy, comfy life until then. (The farm we got them from painted those pink marks on their backs. I don’t know why.)
So I’ll be back soon. Hope you’re all enjoying your summer. What are you up to?
