Summertime in Missouri is HOT. HOT and HUMID. And at Down On The Farm, summertime means garden time. Our garden got a bit of a late start because it was so cold and damp, but it's doing great now. These are green beans. We LOVE 'em. We'll probably can 150 quarts of green beans this year. Have I mentioned we eat a lot of green beans?
And since the cows get hungry too, we bale lots and lots of these babies.
YUM! At least I think that's what these cows are thinking as they look across the fence at the hay bales. Doesn't that cow looking straight at you seem to be saying YUM??
And then there are THESE guys. They don't get out much. Actually, they don't get out at all. Until they head to the processing plant.
It is so pretty this time of year.
And you remember that fire pit we made last summer? Well, here it is. We have spent many evenings sitting around that fire pit. And I've eaten several steaks grilled on that fire pit. And just in case you're wondering . . . NO, we do NOT burn the wood on top of the grate. I just stacked the wood on top of the grate so I could mow the yard.
How about that corn? Doesn't that look YUMMY!!!! Later this year we're gonna grill some ears of corn over our fire pit. After we freeze many, many, quarts of corn. We ran out of corn this year. We eat a lot of corn. So we must freeze MORE CORN. In fact, we planted three more rows of corn after I took this picture.
And these tomato plants. WOW! That is fresh salsa waitin' to happen people!!!!
Yes, life is busy, but good here at Down On The Farm! Thank you Lord for your many blessings!
