Around the "Farm"

I guess using the word "farm" is a bit of a stretch...but I'm a dreamer, what can I say.  Thought I would join Sara over at Farmama this week.  She is one of my favorite blog writers and mamas!  I am continually inspired by all that she does, including a "farm tour" on a regular basis.  Our little bit of land is flourishing right now.  We have 4 raised beds, a peach tree, some assorted planters, perennial flowers and lots of love.

Iris' in full bloom
tight rope walking
little grape sized peaches making big promises
Tomato trellises up with lots of tomatoes from Dragonfly Farm! No link yet as these guys are new, but boy oh boy if you are in Maine keep your eyes out for a great new CSA with eggs from pasture fed hens, super seedlings and so much more!
speaking of those eggs...
A little robin's nest with brand new babies!  This nest is also at dragonfly farm where these sweet folks are waiting to paint their new porch until the baby birds have flown on.

beans are finally in, and Molly's little container of strawberries is looking great.
And finally some sun tea and an old dog lying on the picnic table.  Yup, we let him do it, a terrible habit for sure, but this wise old man gets a much better view of all the goings on (we do ask him to kindly get down if we are planning on having a meal at the table).
I should mention too that the kids have been asking for a slackline for a while now.  I figured I would try a $5 tie down, and it worked!  The kids have been slacklining like crazy.  Of course now they want a longer one.  I did find this link on how to build one myself, so I may give it a try.

So there you have it, a little tour of sorts.  Maybe the folks down at Dragonfly farm will let me give a tour of their place next week.  I'm off to enjoy the sunshine.


  1. Oh yes, I'd call it a farm, especially with Dragonfly so near and fabulous...perhaps it can be an extension of your own ;-). The irises are gorgeous and your dog reminds me of my old cat - they are both black, shiny, and have what some might call "questionable" table manners - but I don't mind one bit! :-)

  2. I am in love with all of your beautiful flowers! The heat has just about ruined mine, but we did get rain last night!!!

  3. Your irises are just gorgeous and those peaches look very promising! We don't have many CSA farms over here, so I am not very familiar with the concept. I see it a lot in blog world.
    I love your old dog :)

  4. I'm not the only one dreaming of a farm, I see. If I squint my eyes in our garden, I can almost see it. Love the tour.

  5. We may not be sara at Farmama, but we do make use of what we have!! I loved your 'farm' tour...

    Blessings, Debbie

  6. I love tours of your "farm". I am excited to see how those peaches grow - yum!

  7. So sweet, thank you for the tour. Yes, definitely a farm, no question. Everything looks sunny and bright, an inspiring tour. Katie x
