We have been incredibly busy these past few weeks.
The good stuff around Girasole Farm...
Tomato seeds and Sunflower seeds have been started and growing well in the green house.
A few weeks ago Caveman built a couple of planters for me out of an old 55 gallon drum that we had hanging around, and yesterday I planted seeds in them.
I planted Basil, Parsley, Cilantro, and Oregano, along with Carrots and Radishes.
When we added trees to the Orchard, I got some Blueberry bushes too.
Eventually they will be planted out in the orchard as well, but for now I will keep them in a container until they are a little bigger.
They even have some small blooms.
The Summer garden area has been plowed up
The soil will need to be worked up a few more times and some compost/mulch added before planting time.
The field is green and has been mowed.
Soon enough it will be brown from the Summer heat.
The Peonies are happy, and doing exceptionally well this year.
and one more thing, something you probably wouldn't expect me to post a picture of....
Caveman has been working on this Shelby Cobra car for about 3 years, and finally it is completed.
He is waiting for a CHP inspection and then file the DMV paperwork.
He built it from scratch! It was a kit car from Factory Five.
I'm excited too, and looking forward to a road trip together.
It was fun having family here with us, and we had a wonderful time.
The sun has continued to shine for us, although the few days Candy was here we did have some rain.
During her visit we took a trip into town and had a visit at
That about sums it up for now.
On Saturday Beth and I are heading to the High Hand Nursery in Loomis for a class on irrigation.
Enjoy the good stuff.
