This has been a fun month as we have started to get fruit!! Seriously, it is like a dream come true. I can't wait for future years as the plants get bigger and we have even more!
I started to get red cabbages earlier this month.
They were so beautiful, I didn't want to pick them! This week I'll be making some sauerkraut with the harvest.
My first year growing shelling peas. They are so good.
And my little helper
Two weeks ago, we harvested the rest of the kale and planted more sweet potatoes in it's place.
I put some bird deterrent ribbon above my blueberries. It is working really well although the view from the street is not so pretty anymore :)
And this is a happy day for my blueberry loving self. It's race to see who can get the blueberries first each morning.
We finally finished the chicken run. It is off the back of the garden and I love it. No more babysitting chickens for us. They were getting too brazen as they walked to the front yard all the time and in the street on occasion. I will post more pictures later, but this is the only one I took so far. We moved our chicks and chickens together as we completed it. Dax still loves the chickens so much, he is in there everyday.
The Seasonal Homestead
Nice to meet you!
