Friday Farm Fotos: Summer Smiles

Just a few random pictures of some things that make me smile this time of year....





Honey bees getting a drink from the birdbath.....








My shade tree book-reading chair...








Happy hens.....









Curious hens....








An empty nest... Not because it's empty, but because it means the trees  have a few more birds in them than they did before....








Hubby and his tractor....








Long evening shadows....

Friday Farm Fotos: Planning Ahead

Ever heard of a... "sheepish grin"?


Even though it is still very much summertime here in Tennessee, it's never too early to start making plans for the upcoming winter because it will be here before we know it.
You may remember a few months ago I mentioned that Hubby had decided sell all his hay equipment...  (this was after the neurosurgeon told him he needed to go easy on his back from now on..) and while I'm all for not having to be in a hay field in 100 degree weather, it does pose the problem of having to find enough good hay from another source to last all winter.

In fact, I've got my boxes of decorations ready... but I guess I'll try to put it out of my mind and hold off at least until September..... *sigh*

We all have dreams, I guess... things we want to do (or at least try) and no matter how far-fetched, we can't seem to quit thinking about it. I have a dream I've kept secret for a while now... Oh, Hubby knows, because I only mention it like 30 or 40 times a week, but.... I've kept it to myself until now.
I dream of having an orchard. As in a real, thriving apple orchard. I've been doing lots of homework- finding information on the Internet about which trees gro…

Chattin' with a friend

Instead of posting about the goings-on around the Fraker Farm today,  I am visiting with my dear friend Tammy from the blog Country Girl at Home. We will be having some sweet iced tea and even sweeter treats  and "chatting" on her sunporch... won't you join us?  Click here to drop in on our conversation- I know she would love for you sit a spell with us!  Happy Wednesday, everyone!
