So, here’s what I found as I strolled (actually biked) our family’s tenth-generation farm on this delicious August day . . .
Our farm pond, which has helped us in our irrigation efforts this summer when the rains didn’t come. (We’re in the process of building a covered bridge at the far end of the pond.)
The Macoun apples (my personal favorite!) are growing nicely in the orchard.
The peaches are just about ripe for picking.
Corn fields galore.
The “fruits” of our labor.
Birdhouse gourds in blossom.
Red Delicious Apples still have a way to go . . .
Red Raspberries are ready for picking.
Our Dapply-Grey Percheron Workhorses are strolling in their pasture.
One comes over for a closer look . . .
Whinny, our miniature horse, is curious, too.
Mother and daughter llamas, always eating or chewing their cud.
Our Golden Retriever (Duke) and Old English Sheepdog (Eddie) welcome a new friend to the farm . . .
A beautiful Brown Swiss calf we’ve named “Buckwheat.”
How cute is he?!?!?!?
