Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Look At That Garden

While Johny was visiting, he spent lots of time checking on the weather in case he had to ask a friend of ours to go water the garden. He was relieved as each day passed and rain graced the garden frequently while he was here, in fact so much so that he became a little concerned that there might be too much rain (we had that problem last year).  When he arrived at the cabin on Monday this week, he was thrilled to find that everything was growing beautifully and all the rain did the garden good, (including the weeds.) He spent a lot of time weeding after he took these photos...

...corn...
...lettuce...
 ...salsify...
...squash...
...and turnips...
...I can't wait until he comes back and brings me a goody bag.  Both Johny and I are looking forward to seeing each other again in mid July. We're meeting in Knoxville for the weekend as I head to a conference in Tennessee the following week. A mini vacation for both of us and I'll be able to enjoy some of these awesome organic veggies he's nurturing!

This is the sunset that welcomed him home, I do miss that view and can't wait to see it with my own two eyes again! I'm hoping to make that happen in early September.

I've gotten back into my routine since Johny, Pogo and Fluffy left. Work continues to be extremely rewarding, and my life here is quite enjoyable. I spent this morning drinking coffee at Crystal Beach, 
and watching this fiddler crab scurry about.

I'm excited that next weekend, I move into my new place; my next post will be from there! Ah, life is good:)

Thanks for reading my blog, see you next week,
Lise

Coffee on the beach sounds nice too!

I am so happy for you, Lise. I love the idea of coffee on the beach, but my life in the mountains is what I love most. Still, a visit to the beach would be nice.
Love your blog and pics of the garden.

Glad things are working out for you with the new move and job. The garden looks great. Mine hasn't been doing as well this year. The only great thing is the onions. They are almost ready to harvest and dry. - Margy
