Homestead Happenings

Still not feeling crafty, at all. 
But I have managed to bake two loves of bread ...

 Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Parmesan Herb Bread (Box mix)

Both were yummy and now I need to buy more raisins and cinnamon so I can keep the big guy happy with his favorite bread.

Our fruit trees are full this year and have Pears and Apples galore. 


 Pears and a German Shepard butt photo bomb.

There will be lots of canning going on in the Fall. Lots of jars of yummy pears, that I can't eat and apple sauce and pie filling that I can eat.

Finally got most of my garden planted this month and it's 90% tomatoes with 80% of those being Roma tomatoes for making Spaghetti Sauce. The other 10% is six bell pepper plants and three cucumbers. I think I need another garden plot in the yard someplace. 
I transplanted my Parsley last week, but that didn't go so well, I'm still waiting to see how many will take and start growing I know I lost at least half if not more. Back in April I was super surprised to find that my Garlic Chives had regrown and I've already been able to harvest once and soon will do cutting number two.

 I was ecstatic to find that my Blueberry bushes had started to come back. This is one of two that I planted last year the second one only has one little branch that has sprouted new growth, but at least they came back. Maybe I'll be able to get a couple more this year and some blackberries to. 

Well .... that's all for now, so until next post ......

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy


  1. Fresh baked bread sounds delicious. I envy your fruit trees, it's too hot where I live for anything but citrus trees.

  2. Hope your Parsley grows! Your loaves of bread look super.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind. They are truly appreciated and help keep me motivated to continue doing the things I love.
