The garden is doing better than last year, so far. One tomato has a bloom! I wished they all did! Something is eating the leaves of the beans. What can I do to help that and keep it organic? I purchased some non-organic sweet potato slips and am going to see how they do. I planted organic heirlooms I ordered a couple of years ago and they didn't make it. I have more knowledge how to grow them now. I just don't know if chickens will eat the sweet potato leaves. Do ya'll know? There's a great spot to plant them in the chicken yard. I'll have to read up on that. How's your garden doing?
The goat girls are doing well. Their bellies are beginning to get bigger. The brown one is bigger than the white one. Maybe she is further along, or has twins. They are due mid-July. The babies will be here before I know it! I hope ya'll are experiencing a warm in your temps! I'll try to send some of our warmth to you! Have a great week! Blessings from Bama!

|The candy striped amaryllis is fading fast!|
|I need to look up this vine. Do you know what it is?|
|Hillbilly chicken shade! They love to gather under here!|
|I hilled the potatoes but it doesn't look like I did enough!|
|How high should the hill go? I think it might start to fall down if I go further.|
|The bees are calm and carrying on. I don't know if I told you in the last post, but Guy had to put the nuc in a larger box because there was no more room for them in the small box. They were honey bound!|
|These are right next to the bees. Funny how purple shows up blue in a photo.|
|My one and only bloom so far is from an heirloom: Nepoli.|
|I wanted bread for breakfast but it was too late to run the bread machine. I thought of the bread that is the easiest, from Jim Lahey's book, My Bread. It is delicious!|
