We are back!

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately!! We have been tied up with visiting family for about a month :) fun times!!

We have had some spectacular weather. Sunny, not too hot, not too humid. Here Lexi does her famous "dead dog on the walkway" routine.

The skies are so beautiful and blue!

Gardens are doing well. We have been harvesting buckets of tomatoes, green beans, basil, eggplant, peppers. The freezer is filling up, and we are eating well :)

The distillation garden is doing great too! It looks like a jungle. This lemongrass plant is waist high. We just cut all our white sage and distilled it. Other annual plants will be cut and distilled soon - Rosemary, lemongrass, lemon verbena.

We are waiting very very anxiously for the peaches to ripen!!!! These are white flesh peaches, that are more cold hardy in our area than the typical varieties. Delicious!

Donna has done an incredible job on her gardens this year.

And we have noticed our bees loving the early fall flowers. They are going especially crazy for goldenrod.
