Our Homesteading Dream

Living, laughing, loving, and learning on our little suburban homestead.

Busy, busy, busy!

We have been soo busy just living lately! Between my family, school, home, yard and garden..whew ;)

Here's the new perennial herb garden..we have chives, rosemary, oregano, and mint so far.

One of the beautiful Foxglove plants a lovely neighbor shared with us...

We've been getting fresh strawberries almost daily! (I was so concerned that we wouldn't get anything from them after losing half of our plants last year.)

An aerial view of our "little" garden. The front 4 rows have another planting of strawberries (mid-season berries) then it's asparagus, rhubarb, heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, lettuce, basil, dill, our new fruit trees etc. and you can see that half of the 1st strawberry patch is pretty empty...

And then there's the "big" garden... green beans, wax beans, Italian beans, lots of tomatoes, summer squash, onions, carrots, beets, popcorn, green peppers, broccoli, cucumbers, and muskmelon.

And then you can see our lovely clothesline ;) We can fit up to 7, large loads of clothes on these lines!

This summer will probably be more picture/video blogging. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? :)
