What We've Been Up TO

Sorry for the lag in posts this summer. We have all been so busy it's been difficult to even gather our thoughts let alone write them down!

I have been working on a post about ponds but it has taken on a life of it's own.

In the meantime I have been collecting photos along the way so I decided to just give you a pictorial overview of some of our activities this summer and catch up on the writing when I get a chance.

Thanks for stopping by and we'll talk soon.

One of my top bar hives had a mouse.

 The Meat Chicks are well on their way.

Our daughter in law had a show.

Buck plays host at the Art Shack

The old barn is getting a face lift, 2 inches a month.
And the underside is full of Carpenter Ants.

It's Red Haven peach season at our neighbors.

 Buck fermented amazing pickles from the cucumbers he grew.

 Our littlest friend has coming for visits. Busy, busy.

My and Jake's coffee roasting has been taking on a much more serious flavor. We have been cupping wholesale lots of green coffee beans to prepare for large orders.

 Amazing sunsets are pretty regular this summer. All the smoke in the air.

Wild life has been staring in the window at us.

 I found some really promising fasteners at Harbor Freight.

 Buck is really good at keeping us fed.

A blessed moment for June, that puppy finally slept!
