The first Brandywine grown from seed – amazingly delicious

Never ending piles of zucchini – I keep thinking about zucchini pickles

The chickens are getting big – I think they call me “the bringer of treats”

Nate and I got one last camping trip in before school started again

I grew a monster zucchini so that I could save the seeds. It weighed in at 16.3lbs!

I went to the Denver Zoo for the first time. The elephant show is awesome!

We now are harvesting POUNDS of tomatoes each day. I need to can these ASAP. I will probably make oven dried tomatoes, as well. 30 tomato plants is a lot. Nate is happy because this is the first time in his life that he’s ever had more tomatoes than he can eat.

This orange striped bee has been visiting our wildflower patch lately. I’ve never seen one with this coloration before.

I really want to make a pair of these leggings in some merino wool and as running tights, too bad the pattern is ridiculously expensive.

I’m excited for fall. We are going to try some cover crops and some fall crops with row covers. The big hen house is nearing completion, the girls are definitely ready for more room. I’m ready for sweaters and boots and knitting and chai. Summer into fall always seems to make me introspective.
