Busy Bees...

We are on a school break before we start summer school. We've been doing swimming lessons and that and that always wipes us out! Plus we have been harvesting our garden for the past few weeks. We have jammed mustang grapes, frozen green beans, okra, Swiss chard, turnip greens and we are shelling cream peas. We are getting ready to start canning tomatoes and storing butternut squash!
Preparing to offer homemade jams made on the farm. Starting with the grape jam which is difficult and time consuming to make.
Additionally we are hunting for an egg eating chicken. We are also getting ready to hatch about 40 eggs for new Fall

layers. As we prepare for a visitor this week and then off to a Wedding in Dallas & visit with he Renkes. Our summers are busy in fact I am actually scheduling time to relax at home. It's sad when summer is so busy you long for the organized and schedule days of Fall.

So we are a basically a bunch of busy bees.
