From Our Garden...

The Ivy is growing some roots so I can transplant it.

I love Ivy - it always looks so fresh to me!

Our Bluberries have done pretty well this year. We have 18 bushes most of which are about 3 years old now. We have frozen about 2 gallons of berries and I can't even tell you how many we already ate!

Yellow Tomato - I love these things!

These are a little "ugly" from the uneven rains we have been getting, but they taste delicious!

My next craft project:

I have had these drying out in the garage for ages. My hubby is a very patient man! He drilled the holes for me and I will dig out the dried seeds and then prime and paint them for birdhouses. Riley, my 11 year old, helped to drill them out, so one has a bigger  "entry way" than the others, but that way we will accomodate several types of birds. Hopefully, we will attract my favorites- Bluebirds!

We are getting ready for a sale this weekend, so my project is on hold while I clean out closets and drawers for donations to our 4H Club for the yard sale, but I can't wait to get started on this!

I am wondering if I can find a good paint that doesn't have a lot of fumes or residue.

Suggestions are verrrry appreciated !

  1. I am a little jealous... I live in an apartment as of right now and have dreaming of having a garden ALL summer :(

  2. I so wish I could have a garden. We live in a house, with a big yard, but we rent and the landlord will not allow us a garden :(
    What a great bounty you have gotten from yours! Looks yummy!

  3. Sorry, just getting back to visiting in bloggyland and I'm just to this post today! You've likely already painted, but I've heard that adding a little clear vanilla (like a tsp. to a gallon of paint) will kill the fumes.

    Hope your sale went well and you are having a wonderful summer!


It is great to hear from you!
