Summer Days

This garden. I can't say enough good things about it this year. 
We are battling a couple issues right now, but overall it's one of our best years yet. 

After a couple years of not having much zucchini, we are enjoying a plentiful harvest.

The carrots. So pleased with the carrots. We finally found varieties that do well in our heavy soil.

Beautiful Bell Peppers. These aren't producing as well as last year, but I can't complain. 
They are healthy, and we are picking them. 

We picked our first Roma Tomatoes, eggplant, and Sweet Heat Peppers this week. Really exciting, as our new veggie of the year is eggplant. Now to try it in some recipes as see how we like it.

I don't think I have overshared my beautiful lilies this year. So, here is one for you to enjoy.

Summer day on the farm, watching the storm move in.

 Queen of the Farm with her best bud. Sadly, this photo was from their last play date. Her friend moved to Texas. We will miss them all lots, and will just have to road trip for a play date now!

 Stay Cool my friends!


  1. It looks like you are getting really nice produce. I LOOOOOOOVE those purple carrots. We dug some of our plain old regular carrots up the other day and roasted them. They were really good! Your lilies are beautiful too!

  2. Oh, Kris!!! What a beautiful farm and gorgeous veggies you have!! The whole post made me smile! :)

  3. wow That's a wonderful harvest, Kris. I wish I had luck with carrots...

  4. This looks so good! Fresh veggies are the best! I'm jealous of your carrots!

  5. Hi,
    I love the tongues of the dogs hanging out, great shot.
    I also love the storm rolling in.

    Your harvest is amazing. Well done!! I am also jealous of your carrots!

  6. Your garden looks amazing, looks like a great harvest too. Love looking at your pics!

  7. I gotta say, I loved this post! Your veggies look amazing, wow! We didn't have our best year here, which I'm chalking up to the fact that I still need to learn a lot. The hubby's dad has been supplying us with zucchini, cucumber, and peppers though, so things haven't been too bad :-)

  8. I love that stormy picture, it makes me miss Kansas just a tiny bit :) Looks like the pups had a great play date.
