Here are the few pictures I did manage to take over the past few weeks from what I have gotten from the garden.

I've been around lately but just super busy, too busy to blog.  Once August kicked in I hurried up to finish the projects that I had had been putting off all summer: patching/repainting the porch and fixing cracks in the bathroom.  Then I started to feverishly cook food from the garden and prep meals to stock the freezer for the school year.

I've been picking things from the garden but not taking many pictures.  The past few weeks have been solely focused on getting ready for the new school year.  Ready or not the tomorrow is the first day of school with my new batch of first graders.  I met most of them at preview night last week and I am excited to get started!  Once the school year is underway I should be around a bit more.

Lately I have been enjoying lots of flowers from the garden.

A Day At The Fair

We went up to Bowling Green to spend the weekend with my Dad and Connie.  Of course we had to hit up the county fair to see the animals and the usual sights.

 I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pose next to a massive (pregnant) milking cow and pretend that this is everyday stuff for us.

  Those pigs looked precious as if they were snuggling, even though I know better.


 Sweet corn at a beef auction and my city boy pretending he knows how to drive the tractor.

I loved this artwork!  I would buy it if I could.

All in all it was a fun day spent at the fair!
