Wordless Wednesday- Around the Homestead

or not so wordless....

Canning season is officially here!

i have two broody hens, so hoping for new peeps in about two weeks. So far we've had zero luck hatching peeps this summer, my rooster may be getting a bit to old to get the job done.

Our new hens have started to lay so we are finally seeing a bit of variety in our eggs.

My girl loves to help shell October beans,

Still picking and freezing lots of beans. Hoping to can some, but am still a bit afraid of my pressure canner.:)

Casper and Delilah just doing what they do. :)

Still have lots of sunflowers blooming.

Peach season starts now...


  1. wow, all your different tomatoes are beautiful together. Loovs like your garden has been most productive. Enjoy all that yummy food!

  2. WOW, look at all those tomatoes and fresh foods. I can't wait for the day that I have a little homestead like that! Good for you! :)

  3. WOW..I think is what we all have to say LOL!
    I Absolutely Love your Beautiful Bounty! Isn't is so Rewarding!?
    I'm jealous. I didn't get to do my garden this many things changing/happening right now. Its the first year of my life never having one! I miss it dearly, but thank goodness for Farmers Market. Still..not the same though.

    I Love that you have chickens too! Nothing like fresh eggs of your own! We are gonna have chickens someday as well!

    Such Beautiful Pictures, it was so nice looking at them and Thank You for Sharing!

    Sweet Peas and Bumblebees
