A Mostly Picture Post!

I took the camera and went around the homestead and took some random pictures. The rhododendron is in full bloom.  I included some close pictures of the blooms.  I love how pretty they are!

We worked on the garden Saturday evening. We got most everything planted.  We use grass clippings for mulch to help with weed control. 

We will plant more seeds next weekend.  That will help with canning.  Everything won't be ready at once!

We decided to use the raised mounds again for the garden.  It was very successful last year.

This is the back side of the rhododendron bushes from the garden.

Nathan painted a flowerpot and planted a pretty purple flower. He did a good job of matching the house!
Last year we had a hanging cucumber plant on the front porch.  This year I bought a grape tomato and Jeremiah planted it along with two onions. We will see how this goes!
This about sums up the homestead at the moment.  I hope you enjoyed the pictures.  I was going to include more but thought it may be a bit of an overkill on the pictures!  I personally like picture posts! :-)


  1. You have a lovely home and yard!!

  2. There's no such thing as too many pictures. :)

    You have a beautiful place there. Best wishes for a successful harvest!

    Have a blessed day. :)
