Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

Out With The Old And In With The New.

Posted on | May 29, 2012 | 4 Comments

The time is finally here.

The spring crops, like the lettuce and snap peas, have slowed to being harvested a handful at a time.  And the summer crops, like  zucchini and squash, need a basket to be carried up.

The pansies are drooping next to the wild abandon of the petunias….

….and cowering at the feet of the glorious lilies.  They know their days are numbered.

Of course, the onset of the real heat also means the approach of tropical storms, such as Beryl….

….the necessity of the upstairs air conditioner unit to break and begin leaking through the ceiling into a pot protecting the wood floors…

….and, GASP, holy crap, could it be?….the beginning of swim suit season????!!!!

No picture necessary.  You can thank me later.

Welcome, summer.

I guess.

    What an answer to prayer Beryl was in our area…first rain in months…never thought I would be happy to be trapped inside with a bored 4yr old for 2 days because of rain would bring me such joy lol.

    Sorry about your A/C and Ceiling.

    Blessings Kelsie
