On my drive home last night I caught this sunset view as I crossed the James river. A thunderstorm had rolled through just a couple hours before.
We’ve made it into the scorching days of midsummer, and things have been good here on the homestead. Our veggies haven’t done as well this year as last, but we did get our first-ever okra, including this big boy…
…w got turned into a fried movie-watching tasty delight.
The ducks continue to just drop eggs wherever they are passing through.
We have a chicken that has gone broody, only problem is she is very bad at it. She keeps switching the box she wants to sit in. So the other day we started to try and break her broodiness with a nice cold bath, while the bunnies dug a hole to China behind my back.
We did get enough out of the garden for my wife to put together a nice welcome home basket for our neighbor.
One thing I have learned to love about living in the country is how in times of plenty people love to share their bounty. This bag of cucumbers was a gift from a regular pharmacy customer.
Living out a ways means that the miles can rack up on the vehicle quite quickly, so I’ve started changing my own oil.
And lastly for today I found a new friend the other day, sunning himself on the studio stairs.
