What a beautiful and productive weekend at Indigo Acres! After I cross off items on our “Adventure List” (aka, To-Do-List), it is always so nice to step back and take in everything that was accomplished. What a wonderful feeling the sense of accomplishment brings! And, that crazy productivity seems to continue to follow me yet today! Before noon, I completed barn chores, groomed Ophe, (the 130lb Newfie https://growingself.blog/2017/04/25/our-gentle-giant/) and trimmed the hooves of four goats. What does this really mean? I wrestled with five 100lb+ beasts and WON!
One of our many tasks this weekend was to continue to clean up and pick strawberries. After a difficult start to the season, due to heat and heavy rains, the first round of berries were not very successful. After cleaning out all of the berries, lost to excessive heat and rain, it was time to pick the beauties!
For a few yummy strawberry recipes, here are a few of my previous blog posts:
More Hoop House Adventures…
Wifey has been excited to build another hoop house for greens and other cold crops. We are always trying to extend our growing season! Although this was supposed to be a “Non-Project Year”, somehow, we ended up at Lowes, purchasing supplies and spent the weekend building.
Here is the link to the step-by-step process on how we build our hoop houses: https://growingself.blog/2017/03/25/help-from-a-hoop-house/
After this past weekend, almost everything has been planted. Now we weed, water and wait! Here are a few photos…
The garden is calling…more updates coming soon! When everything looks so young, I wonder if it will ever be ready to harvest. Then, I look at last year’s photo and remind myself that miracles take time!
Get out there and plant something! I promise, it will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart!
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You!
