Friday Farm Fotos: Beans and Greens, Quilts and Blooms
One of my little honey bees hard at work....
Can you see the pollen sac on her leg?
A couple of months ago I showed a picture of our little garden spot that Hubby was preparing for some fall greens...
Here is a picture of it now!
Kale and mustard greens are in the middle and to the right; green beans are coming up on the left. When Hubby went to the farm store to buy the seeds he found these green bean seeds on sale, so he bought them and planted them too. I know we are in a race against time for the beans to make anything before the first frost, but at least we're hoping the blooms will give our little honey bees something to work.
Speaking of blooms, here are some more random blooms around here...
This is our resident horticulture expert.
She likes to chew sticks to determine which type of tree it came from.
Then she gets choked on them and I threaten to take her to the vet to have her stomach pumped.
This is one of my favorite quilts hanging out to dry after being washed... even though it's "store-bought" and not handmade, I still love it because it is so soft and the design is wonderfully simple.
It's a full-sized quilt so it is too small to use on our bed but I can't bear to part with it so it is now the "couch quilt"- it stays draped across the couch. In the event a nap comes on suddenly, it's conveniently close by to wrap up in... and it also to helps keep Lily's hairs off the couch so I won't have to vacuum it every day.
Do any of you have a "couch quilt" or blanket?
(And by the way, Lily is not supposed to be on the couch- she has two dog beds
along with her demolished cushion on the love seat by the window-
but whenever she is left at home alone there is evidence to support otherwise....)
Happy Friday, everyone!
