It is FINALLY Summer here in the beautiful PNW

While I must say all the rain certainly saves on a water bill.. you know, ya don't hafta water the flowers.    Ever.  At all.  It rains n rains.  Then along comes July 5th and we get SUMMER!  It has been absolutely beautiful here ~~ sunny, hot days with some fabulous Thunder Storms thrown in for good measure.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July.  :)

There have been a lot of changes in the face of what I consider 'farming' in my life.

First of all.. this year.. no Garden.  My 'farmin' has downsized to a few strawberry plants in pots.. a coupla blueberry bushes in the cozy back yard of my little cottage in town.  I didn't put in a garden at all, although I DO have two nice raised beds.  My schedule and life right now just wouldn't allow for good care.  Growing things is important to me, and I have satisfied that need by planting easy to care for flowers and hanging baskets.   I do still have my ducks and chickens, no longer the goats.  They have an EXCELLENT new home and I am very happy of where they went. :)
As far as the ducks and chickens ~ I am still raising, breeding, showing Bantam White Cochins, Serama, and Butterscotch Calls....  Hope to see ya at the Fall fairs and shows :)

Things will even out again, in this crazy messed up adventure of life.
