Blessed we are to live where we do, to have the garden space and soil to enable us to grow a good quantity of our food, to have each other and the help and support of an oh-so-willing, loving and capable daughter living close by.
An illustration of our usual breakfast lately. Asparagus fresh from the garden, homemade rye bread and scrambled eggs with bits of bacon and parsley. Look at the yellow of those eggs. Shows what having chickens out on pasture can produce.
We've gotten close to 1-3/4" of rain in the last twenty-four hours. (Hip-hip-hooray!) So very welcome after hardly a drop of moisture since April. The garden is soaking up Mother Nature's gift and seems to be growing as we speak this morning!
